BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — Bakersfield product Brayden Watts put in a good training camp with the Condors.

Head coach Jay Woodcroft says Brayden has the potential to be an everyday player, adding that he works hard, has good skills, and is serious about getting better.

Watts was on a tryout with the club and was sent back to the Condors' ECHL club in Wichita to make room for more guys coming down from the Edmonton Oilers.

Woodcroft says Brayden needs to keep working at his game and gaining experience because rosters and lineups are fluid.

The Condors host Abbotsford in their home opener 7 p.m. Saturday when they unveil their newest Pacific Division banner.

23ABC will continue its live coverage of Condors action at 5 p.m. on Sunday when San Jose skates into Mechanics Bank Arena.

You can watch it on channel 23.

23ABC broadcast eight condor home games during last year's COVID-altered season and we're proud to offer you six home games this season.
