    Condors introduce new coach Houle

    It didn't take long for new Condors coach JF Houle to gain favor with some ardent fans during a meet-and-greet Wednesday at Rabobank Arena.

    When asked by a fan if he could give any information about players who are coming to Bakersfield, he said not just yet. Then he continued.

    "We will have Gabriel Verpaelst who is a big, strong defenseman who plays tough," Houle said. "He's going to be a nice addition to our team. Also (Nick) MacNeil (who played a handful of games late last season). He just signed today. Those are a couple I can talk about today."

    The official announcement of those signings will surely come later from the Condors, as the team was not planning on any player announcements.
