Miscellaneous

Team Highs

The Condors advanced past the 1st Round of the playoffs for the first time in their history in the 2005-06 season. They defeated the Long Beach Ice Dogs in seven games. The Condors lost in the seventh game of the next round against the Fresno Falcons, making it the longest playoff run in Condors history.

Infamous moments

In the 2004-05 ECHL playoffs, Condor Ashlee Langdone checked Alaska Ace Scott Gomez (who was playing that season in the ECHL due to the NHL strike) hard, sending him hip first into the open bench door. The resulting injury, a broken pelvis, knocked Gomez out of the rest of the playoffs, and resulted in Langdone being given a boarding penalty and a one-game suspension. The incident drew a rather negative reaction due to Gomez' status as an NHL all star, and accusations arose that the hit was ordered by Condors head coach Marty Raymond, although such accusations were never substantiated.
