The boys are back in town

October 7, 2005 - ECHL (ECHL) - Bakersfield Condors News Release

It's that time of year again. Training camp is underway. With less than 16 days remaining until the season opener, players are pouring into town for training camp. Twenty-nine talented men will take to the ice competing to be one of the 2005-06 Condors.

Get ready Bakersfield; history has repeated itself. The Los Angeles Kings and Manchester Monarchs have sent another goalie and forward to Bakersfield. This year fans can look forward to seeing forward Eric Neilson and goalie Ryan Munce with the Condors, in what is sure to be an exciting season.

Neilson was drafted in the 2004 NHL Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. He enters his first season in the pros after playing four years with Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Munce was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the 3rd round of the NHL Draft in 2001. Last season, he was ranked 4th among goaltenders in the Ontario Hockey League with 55 starts.

Joining Neilson and Munce in training camp will be 27 other individuals, including recent signees Rob MacGregor and Davis Parley. MacGregor appeared in nine games for the Victoria Salmon Kings last season, where he recorded a goal and four penalty minutes. Prior to playing with Victoria, he spent his junior hockey league with the WHL's Portland Winter Hawks.

Parley returns to the lineup after helping the Condors get to the playoffs last season. After joining the Condors late in the season from the Texas Wildcatters, he played in 11 games with the Condors including all five of the ECHL Kelly Cup Playoff games and put up 2.87 goals against average and a .922 save percentage.
