BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Bakersfield Condors right winger Kailer Yamamoto was announced on the 2020 American Hockey League All-Star Roster on Friday.

Yamamoto was recalled to the Edmonton Oilers on Dec. 29 and while it's likely he will still be in the NHL by the time the Jan. 27 game comes around, his impact was still felt in Bakersfield.

The 21-year-old notched 16 points in 23 games for the Condors and led the team in game-winning goals. Since being promoted, he has recorded a goal and an assist in two games.
