History

2006-07: US-Land Banking League, previously known as the DNL (Deutsche Nachwuchs-Liga), experienced something it hadn't seen in six years – a champion from a town other than Mannheim, Germany. The new German champion was none other than the Cologne EC Junior Sharks. Spearheading the way to the championship after a second place finish during the regular season was 17 year-old goalie Timo Pielmeier, who posted a win-loss record of 24-11 in the regular season followed by a 6-0 record in the playoffs. His total of 2070 minutes played easily topped the league, while his 2.17 GAA was tops among goalies who had played at least 20 games during the season. In addition to this impressive achievement at home, Timo represented Germany on the international stage in both the U20 WJC and the U18 WJC, helping Germany remain in the A-group at both competitions. Particularly impressive was his 3-2 victory against Latvia and the 6-3 victory over the Czech Republic at the U18 WJC held in Tampere and Rauma, Finland.  Drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the third round of the 2007 NHL Draft, 83rd overall.

2008-09: Traded to the Anaheim Ducks in the deal that brought Travis Moen and Kent Huskins to the San Jose Sharks. Playing for Shawinigan of the QMJHL, he posted a 29-11 record in 43 games. He also registered 2 shutouts, a 2.64 GAA, and a .914 save percentage.

2009-10: Of all the goaltending prospects Anaheim has in the minors, Pielmeier Is the only one who hasn’t found trouble getting regular playing time. Assigned to the ECHL Bakersfield Condors.In 57 games, he posted a 27-22-5 record, a 3.29 GAA, and a .883 save percentage.

2010-11: Pielmeier made his NHL debut in a February game against St. Louis, playing the last two periods in relief of Curtis McElhinney. In his only NHL appearance, he allowed 5 goals on 12 shots in the 9-3 loss. Pielmeier spent the majority of the season with AHL Syracuse, splitting time with Jean-Philippe Levasseur. In 37 games with the Crunch, Pielmeier was 16-18 with 1 shutout and had a 3.09 GAA and .906 save percentage. He played two games with ECHL Elmira and was 1-1 with a 3.37 GAA and .873 save percentage.

Canadiens’ weekly prospects update

by Chris Boucher
on

Ron Hainsey -D (Drafted-00(1/13))

Hainsey scored 1 goal through 3 games this week. His first goal since returning from a wrist injury came during a 6-5 loss to Worchester. The goal was also his first non-powerplay goal this season. Overall, the 6’3″, 200-lbs defenseman has played 15 games. He has 7 points (4-3-7), and is +2 with 8 minutes in penalties. Three of his 4 goals were scored on the powerplay.

Mathieu Garon -G (Drafted-96(2/44))

Garon was unable to record a win through 3 starts since our last update. He continues to struggle to find his game, as well as his confidence. This week saw his goals against average balloon from 2.54 last week to 3.14 this week. Overall, the 6’2″, 192-lbs goalie has a 5-2-2 record with an already mentioned 3.14 GAA, and a .904 save percentage.

Eric Chouinard -F (Drafted-98(1/16))

Chouinard scored 2 goals and added 3 assists through 3 games this week. He rebounded from a 9-game scoreless streak, and now has points in 5 of his last 6 games. Overall, the 6’3″, 207-lbs forward has played 28 games. He has a team-leading 25 points (11-14-25), and is +1 with 8 minutes in penalties. Surprisingly, only 1 of his 11 goals has been scored on the powerplay; which speaks volumes for Chouinard’s 5-on-5 play this season. He also has a team leading 83 shots on goal.

Francois Beauchemin -D (Drafted-98(3/75))

Beauchemin was shutout through 1 game this week. He was a healthy scratch during 2 of the last 3 games. Overall, the 6’0″, 201-lbs defenseman has played 12 games. He has 4 poi Read more»

Josef Vavra – a wildcard for the draft

by Robert Neuhauser
on
Josef Vavra didn’t have the opportunity like lots of fellow 2002 prospect had, for example Jiri
Hudler, Petr Taticek or Petr Jelinek. He wasn’t born in a family of a former active player
or even active coach. Josef’s dad enjoyed a basketball career but was a huge fan of hockey, though.
Because he didn’t play organised hockey, only when he had the opportunity to agree with
some friends on a match, then he laced up the skates and the puck began to fly on the ice. Read more»

Boyes makes three for WJC

by Stephen J. Holodinsky
on

Canada’s World Junior Championship team was unveiled on Saturday afternoon and among the names on the list were three Toronto Maple Leaf draftees. Making the cut were defensemen Jay Harrison of the Brampton Battalion, as well as Erie Otter teammates Carlo Colaiacovo and Brad Boyes, the former a blueliner, the latter a pivot. Each is obviously happy to be a part of this long time holiday tradition but each also has something to prove at this tournament.

Brad Boyes is one of the returning forwards from last years’s bronze medal team but while one can count the experience card in his favour, whether or not it was a good or bad one, is up for debate. By the end of the tournament his icetime was being slashed as he was generally ineffective up front. It is not the Brad Boyes many had come to know in the CHL and he arrived in training camp a bit lighter and a step faster. The Otter pivot is an important prospect for the Buds. He is the first pick of the Quinn regime (Nick Beverly is Mike Smith’s man) and a lot of reputations are riding on how well he turns out. As far as Boyes is concerned, if he can put a recent bout of mononucleosis behind him and impress overseas, he has a chance to place himself squarely in position to leapfrog several other highly touted prospects in the Leafs system come September.

Like Boyes, Jay Harrison is no stranger to spending Christmas overseas having done the same thing last year in Moscow. He’s one of five returnees on the blueline but he’ll be the only one playing tour guide for the new guy (see below) at least fro Read more»
