Edmonton has reassigned Dylan Wells to Wichita from Bakersfield. Additionally, the Condors have recalled defenseman Vincent Desharnais.

Wells, 22, returns to Wichita for the first time since Opening Weekend. He was reassigned to Bakersfield right after the Thunder's first two games of the season and appeared in seven contests so far this year for the Condors.

Wichita continues on its seven-game road trip on Wednesday night against Rapid City at 8:05 p.m.
