Cuda and Condors: On Wednesday, the Barracuda kick off a three-game homestand with the second meeting of the season against the Oilers' top affiliate. Bakersfield handed the Barracuda a 1-0 loss in the first matchup on Oct. 17 at the Mechanics Bank Arena and enter Wednesday with points in three consecutive games (2-0-1-0).
Condors Check: Forward Seth Griffith is fourth in the AHL in points (5+11=16) and is currently on a 12-game point streak which dates to opening night on Oct. 16. In his career, Griffith has spent time within the Boston Bruins and Winnipeg Jets organizations but joined the Condors last season, scoring 28 points (10+18=28) in 39 games played. Adam Cracknell, who has played in over 580 AHL games and has over 350 points in the league, is averaging a point-a-game with 12 points (4+8=12) in 12 outings this year. Captain Brad Malone (5+6=11) and forward Cooper Marody (5+6=11) each have 11 points in 11 games played so far this year. Marody led the AHL in scoring a year ago.
Gregor the Great: Forward Noah Gregor has points in six-straight games and is up to nine points (4+5=9) in seven games played this season. The third-year pro has missed a pair of games due to Covid-19 protocols and Canadian border mandates but leads the team in goals (4), assists (5), and points (9). Gregor’s six-game streak is the longest of his career.
Reedy Rolling: Barracuda forward Scott Reedy netted his team-leading fourth goal of the year last Friday and team-leading second power-play goal. The first-year pro sits second on the team in points and ranks first in the AHL in shooting percentage (4/9=44%).
Sommer Time: Head Coach Roy Sommer returns for his AHL-best 24th season in 2021-22 and his 26th within the Sharks organization. The Oakland, Calif. native has been behind the bench for 1,683 games, going 792-683-49-159 (W-L-T-OTL/SOL) over that span. During the 2015-16 season, the Barracuda’s first in San Jose, Sommer surpassed Fred “Bun” Cook (636 wins) for the most wins in AHL history in a 4-2 win over the Ontario Reign on Feb. 10, 2016.
Killin' it: The Barracuda killed six Abbotsford man-advantages on Sunday after allowing an opposing power-play goal in eight consecutive games. The team looks to keep the trend going against a Bakersfield power-play that sits at 23.4%, the eighth-best in the AHL.
