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.

B’s have little time to sign Memorial Cup MVP

by pbadmin

The time is quickly ticking away for the Boston Bruins to come to terms with Memorial Cup Most Valuable Player and top prospect Kyle Wanvig. The Bruins have until May 31st at midnight to sign Wanvig to a contract before he can re-enter the 2001 NHL entry draft.

Wanvig, 6’ 2”, 220-lbs., had 2-4-6 totals in the Memorial Cup en route to being named the Stafford Smythe trophy winner as the tournament’s most valuable player. Both of his goals came on the power play during the championship game against the Val-d’Or Foreurs of the QMJHL.

Kyle, who was drafted in the 3rd round (89th overall) in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, had a career season for the Red Deer Rebels (WHL) this past season. In 69 games for the Rebels Wanvig scored 55 goals while adding 46 assists for 101 points while spending 202 minutes in the penalty box.

Many say Kyle could potentially skate alongside Joe Thornton on the Bruins second line next season if he signs. This would be great for the Bruins if Wanvig could step right into the NHL on the second line and play like he did this past season in the Western Hockey League. Wanvig is close to the NHL but to put that type of pressure on a rookie isn’t a good recipe for success.

While Kyle is an excellent power forward he will definitely not let Boston fans forget about Cam Neely who many say invented the power forward position. The Bruins tried Landon Wilson to help fill Neely’s shoes but didn’t work out and Wilson has since moved onto the Phoenix Coyotes where he has found a regular shift and next u Read more»

Profile on Christoph Schubert

Coming from Munich

Christoph Schubert, a 19 year old defenseman, who was born in the bavarian capital München (Munich). He is a eligible draft prospect for the upcoming Draft and maybe a NHL-team picked him up. Is he talented enough? Yes, Schubert are always in the first line of every bantam, midget and junior team he played for. The coaches saw his big potential and gave him many ice-time. They know, that they could have a great defender talent on their roster.

His junior days

His first junior season where he appeared the full length of the season in a junior team was 1998-99. He played for the EV Landshut junior team; their pro team spent the season in the DEL and the best juniors maybe get a shot there. Marco Sturm for example was in the same situation, but Sturm make the team in the pre-season and there wasn’t so much foreign players in the pro team. The terrific number of 18 players haven’t a german passport, so the young prospects had no chance to play. Also, Landshut had eight defenders on their roster, to hard to get a shot to play in th DEL for Schubert.

But he played a solid season in their junior team, appearing in 28 games, scoring 10 goals and recording 35 points. A good number for a def Read more»

Capitals 2000-01 Roster Comments

by Rick Davis
on

Thank you to the people who corrected the information that I had on Danius Zubrus’s contract.

Craig Billington

2000-01 regular season numbers – 12 games, 660 minutes, 2.45 GAA, 3 wins, 5 losses, 2 ties, .915 save %
Contract Status – signed through 2002-2003 season
Comments – Although Craig doesn’t get a lot of playing time with the Capitals, he plays very well when he is in. All signs point to him being happy as Kolzig’s backup and the Capitals being happy with him. One of the benefits of having Billington as a backup is that as a veteran, he can and does help Kolzig with positioning and confidence. I would be extremely surprised if he does not return.

James Black

2000-01 regular season numbers – 42 games, 1 goal, 5 assists, 6 points, -3, 4 PIM
Contract Status – Capitals have option on 2001-2002 season
Comments – James came into last season still trying to recover from a broken leg sustained the year before, and it seemed that missing camp hurt his conditioning which in turn hurt his position with the team. Primarily a role-player and penalty-killer, James was a healthy scratch for all six Capitals playoff games. It has been reported in the Washington Post that the Capitals are leaning towards not exercising the option on James’s contract, thus making him an Unrestricted Free Agent after July 1.

Alexander Buturlin -RW (Drafted-99(2/39))

The Sarnia Sting’s Alexander Buturlin began the season quietly, but broke out with 5 points in his ninth game.

He finished +14, on a team where the next highest total was +4. Seventeen of Sarnia’s players finished the season in the minus, while only 4 (including Buturlin) finished with a plus/minus above zero.
The 6’0″, 187 lbs. Buturlin played 58 games. He had 65 points (28-37-65), and was a team-leading +14, with 27 minutes in penalties. Seven of his goals were scored on the powerplay, while 1 was scored short-handed. He had point scoring streaks of 4 games on three different occasions, along with one streak of 5 games between November 12th, and November 22nd.
Alexander had a relatively strong World Junior Tournament. He scored 4 goals and added 1 assist in 7 games, including 2 goals in the game against Canada. He finished with a +1 rating, but did not handle the p Read more»
