Chorneyko signs with Bakersfield

Rookie forward will begin pro career in the ECHL

The Bakersfield Condors have announced that Adam Chorneyko has signed with the club for the 2010-11 season.

Chorneyko, 21, is entering his first full season in the pro ranks. He played five seasons in the junior ranks in the Western Hockey League, and then one season with the University of Lethbridge, posting 35 points (16 G, 19 A) in 26 games.

He appeared in the final four regular season games with the Brahmas, scoring two goals and adding an assist. He also skated in seven playoff games, recording two points.

"Adam is a dynamic power forward, he'll be a physical force and score some goals," Condors coach Marty Raymond said. "It's a great combination."

The Condors, who have yet to announce an affiliation with a National Hockey League team, will open the ECHL season on Oct. 16.
