History

Previously known as the Bakersfield Jr. Condors, the team relocated from Bakersfield, California in the summer of 2011, and became the Ogden Mustangs. The Weber County Ice Sheet, located on the campus of Weber State University, was one of several host venues for the 2002 Winter Olympics. As a result, many upgrades and amenities have been added and was one of the deciding factors in the relocation of the team. They are the second junior team to play in Ogden, the first was the Ogden Blades, who played the 1993–94 season in the American Frontier Hockey League.
