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.

Tampa Bay Day Two Draft Review

by Megan Sexton
on

Last season’s catch phrase, “We’re bigger. We’re faster. We’re younger,” appears to still hold true. Of the fourteen players selected by the
Lightning over the weekend, only one was under 6’3” … he was 6’2”. Included in this group are hulking 6’7” defenseman
Art Femenella and 6’5” forward Dennis Packard.

The average size of the fourteen draftees is 6’3”, 200lbs,
three inches taller and ten pounds heavier than last year’s median.

In the 2000 draft, Rick Dudley chose overage European
players with three of his ten total selections. It was expected he would do the same again this year, but when
all was said and done, Dimitri Bezrukov ended up the only player over the age
of nineteen.

The draftees all fit the prototypical Dudley mold, which
consists of size, speed, grit and youth.
In other words, “Bigger, Younger, Faster.”

While Dudley used his first four selections to take European
players (3 Russians, 1 Swede), the next six were used to take North Americans,
a bit out of character for Dudley, who is known to have a liking for
Europeans. Du Read more»

Islanders Draft Review

Islanders Draft Review

“Mad” Mike Milbury has done it again… Milbury has one again rolled the dice by trading highly regarded Tim Connolly and Taylor Pyatt for Mike Peca. The basis of the “new” Islanders nucleus has been formed today, and as custom to other Milbury drafts, there have been questions left unanswered.
Yesterday, the Islanders traded Bill Muckalt, Zdeno Chara, and the 2nd selection in the 2001 draft (Jason Spezza) for Alexie Yashin.I am very happy about this deal because it made sure that the Islanders were getting the top line center that they had lacked since the days of Pierre Turgeon. Although it was hard to see the big bruiser Chara go to Ottawa, both teams received what they needed through this deal. Yashin was very excited when he heard the news and is glad to be an Islander; something that Mike Milbury wanted his players to be.
Today, Milbury traded young guns Taylor Pyatt and Tim Connolly to Buffalo for Mike Peca. Peca, who is regarded as one of the top two-way centers in the game, held out last season due to a contract dispute. Peca, who grew up watching the likes of Mike Bossy and Bryan Trottier, was speechless when he heard the news. Peca also spoke very highly of the Islanders, and said that with the additions of Yashin and himself, this is a new team.
The winner of these deals will depend on three players. Those players being Tim Connolly, Taylor Pyatt, and Jason Spezza. Connolly, who has the moves and the potential to be a top 20 point producer in a matter or year Read more»
