The Bakersfield Condors will be without their top goaltender and leading scorer as they head into a set of three games in three days this weekend.

Bakersfield's American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, have recalled goaltender Laurent Brossoit and forward Greg Miller.

Brossoit, 21-9-2, is second in the league in goals against average at 2.06 and third in save percentage at .924.

The Barons are reassigning goaltender Tyler Bunz, who started the season with the Condors, to Bakersfield.

Bunz is 5-2-0-3 with the Condors. He was recalled to Oklahoma City on Jan. 28 and has played just one game there since, stopping 31 shots in a win on March. 2.

Miller, who had been playing for Stockton, was acquired by the Barons last month and immediately assigned to the Condors. He has 10 points in 11 games with the Condors and is fourth in ECHL rookie scoring with 48 points in 48 games.

The Condors play in Ontario on Friday, host Ontario on Saturday and play in Las Vegas on Sunday.
