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.

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.

Beechey’s return burns the ICE

by Jeff Bromley

Beechey’s return burns the ICE

All good things must come to an end. Great movies, summer vacations and yes, even unbeaten streaks. It had to be somebody, even worse, it had to be the Calgary Hitmen and as returning player stories don’t often go, it was a familiar friend leading the charge against his former teammates.

Tyler Beechey made his triumphant return to the town he called home during hockey season for the past four years and potted two goals including the game-winner in a 5-3 defeat of the Kootenay ICE by their arch-rival, the Calgary Hitmen.

Beechey, a twenty-yr-old who was traded on September 28th to the Hitmen in exchange for nineteen-yr-old Shaun Norrie in order for the ICE to pare down their roster to the league-mandated allotment of three overage players, opened the scoring just minutes into the contest on a bullet slap-shot that went five-hole on ICE rookie netminder Bryan Bridges. And just in case anybody had forgotten how the Edmonton product can produce clutch goals as he had done so many times in an ICE uniform, Beechey lifted a rebound over a sprawling Bryan Bridges on the power-play at the 13:40 of the third frame for what turned out the eventual game-winner.

For Beechey the two goal performance and the win were a little bittersweet. “I was a little nervous coming in,” said Beechey. “Mo (former ICE teammate Lance Morrison who also returned with the Hitmen) and I talked on the bus and we were both pretty nervous but we knew after the first couple of shifts that it would turn into a normal game.”
