Just as the Condors have gotten on a roll, the American Hockey League has come a-calling.
Forward Nicholas Tremblay, who has been a big part of Bakersfield's four-game winning streak with two goals and two assists, has been loaned to the Providence. R.I., Bruins.

No doubt the rookie from Candiac, Quebec has been on the radar of AHL teams for some time as he is fifth on the team in scoring with 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) in just 21 games.
While Tremblay has played a large role in the winning streak, it's been an entire team effort, starting with goaltender Brian Stewart.
The Condors have yielded 190 shots on goal in the past four games (an astounding average of 47.5 per game) but Stewart has allowed just five goals for a save percentage of .979.
"Stewy's playing well," O'Dette said. "There's been a lot of rebounds and some second and third opportunities but it's working. To do anything at this time of the year you need good goaltending and Stewy has been great."
