BAKERSFIELD Calif. -- The Bakersfield Condors have signed three more players for the 2010-11 season.

Center Adam Naglich returns from last season's squad, joining defenseman Jay Cascalenda and goalie Peter Hirsch as additions announced Tuesday.

Naglich, 26, had a standout rookie season with the Condors last season, leading all first-year players on the team in goals, assists and points, according to the Condors.

Cascalenda, 25, spent his rookie season last year with the South Carolina Stingrays, posting seven points in 42 contests.

Hirsch, 31, first played with the Condors in 2003-04, their first season in the ECHL. The Copenhagen, Denmark, native has spent the rest of his career in Europe.

"With the fans we have and the community support we receive, it was a no-brainer to return," said Naglich. "And any time you have a season like we did last year, and win a division championship but lose in the second round, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. So we'll be focused to go further this season."
