Wichita, KS (March 13th) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, announced two separate transactions today. Edmonton has recalled goaltender Stuart Skinner from Bakersfield and assigned him to Wichita. Defenseman Ian Edmondson has been signed to a standard player contract.

Skinner, 20, returns to Wichita for the first time since mid-January. The Edmonton, Alberta native helped Bakersfield during their impressive 17-game winning streak. He has appeared in six games for the Condors this season, going 4-2-0-0 with a 2.99 goals-against average and .879 save percentage. Skinner has played in 30 games for the Thunder this year, going 10-12-1-3 with a goals-against average of 3.20 and .906 save percentage.

Edmondson, 24, turns pro after playing four years at Canisius College. A native of Toronto, Ontario, the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder appeared in 122 games for the Golden Griffins, collecting 34 points (4g, 30a). He was also named as team captain for his senior campaign as well as being named as an assistant in his junior year. During that same season, he was named to the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team. Edmondson is a former teammate of current Thunder forward Ralph Cuddemi.

The Thunder continues on their five-game road trip on Friday night against Kansas City starting at 7:05 p.m.
