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.


Playing time at a high level is an issue right now.

Hamilton Bulldogs Mid-Season Report

by AHL Report Staff

Hamilton Bulldogs Mid-Season Report Card

As the Bulldogs progress through the 2001-2002 season, we have seen them
shake off a poor start to become the AHL’s most dominant team and then
we have seen them falter again since Christmas. In this report, we’ll
take a quick look at the players currently on the Hamilton roster and
how they have fared thus far.
NOTE: Players with 10 or fewer games played have been omitted. Stats
accurate as of Jan. 23, 2002.


30 Ty CONKLIN – Plays well until he gives up a bad goal, then usually
gives up another bad one shortly after. Needs to work on puck-handling
and mental toughness. Current record stands at 8-5-4 with a 2.57 GAA and
a save percentage of 0.916. GRADE: B-

35 Marc LAMOTHE – Very solid in net. Gives up a softie once in a while,
but generally makes up for it by saving the Bulldogs asses late in the
game. A little too “floppy.” Current record is 14-10-2 with a GAA of
2.34 and a 0.923 save percentage. GRADE: A


4 Ales PISA – Reads plays well both offensively and defensively. Not
afraid to jump into the rush, but knows enough to peel off and get back
into position if things don’t look right. Current stats are 4-8-12 in 29
GP, rating of +7. GRADE: B+

5 Chris HAJT – Good defensive awareness, but needs to play with more of
a physical edge. Can’t seem to figure out what the word “offense” means.
Current stats are 2-2-4 in 21 GP, +/- rating is even. GRADE: C-

6 Alex HENRY –Read more»

Jackets CHL Player Update

by Aaron Vickers

Jackets CHL Prospect Update

Western Hockey League

Shane Bendera – G – Kelowna Rockets
Shane’s numbers have come back down to earth somewhat after posting insane numbers in his first 5 games with the Rockets. His 1.38 GAA with the Rockets has dropped to 2.29 GAA, which would still be good enough for third in the WHL. His SV% is now a tidy .919, also good for 3rd in the Western League. However, his play in net has yet to translate into a big winstreak for Kelowna. Bendera has posted a 5-4-3 record with his new club. Bendera also had the distinction of being named to the WHL Western All-Stars for the Hershey Cup.

Ben Knopp – RW – Kamloops Blazers
Ben has got rolling somewhat as of late with his new mates. On the season he now has 25 goals and 47 points (25-22-47) which places him 2nd in team scoring. However, Knopp has played more games than anyone on the Blazers team, and has played 15 more than Scottie Upshall who also has 47 points, on 22 goals. Knopp still sits in the negatives in regards to plus/minus, with a –12. He continues to adjust with his new linemates.

Kiel McLeod – C – Kelowna Rockets
McLeod, like teammates Shane Bendera and Chuck Kobasew, was also named to the WHL Western All-Stars for the Hershey Cup. There is an interesting piece up at the Rockets Official Website in regards to McLeod, which you can check out here: http://www.kelownarockets.com/newsletter/jan/index.html

The Marc Savard Situation

by David Glaz

Flames Forward Marc Savard has seen his entire season become mired in controversy. All seemed to be going well for Savard in Calgary going into the season, but he’s had a dismal year up to this point; he’s had a clash with the system the team plays; disgruntled over being bumped of star player Jarome Iginla’s line, and has constantly quarreled with coach Greg Gilbert. Savard is an offensively gifted player on an offensively starved team, and he should be a tremendous part of the group, but he’s not. Now its up to GM Craig Button to decide whether its worth it to keep Savard and try to resolve the situation, or deal the most marketable of your expendable players to help shore up extremely the poor depth up front.

Four games into the season Savard was kneed by Detroit winger Darren McCarty, and sustained a knee injury that kept him out of the lineup for six weeks. In his absence Iginla was paired with Craig Conroy and the two, along with Roman Turek, carried the team to a 13-2-2 start. When Savard came back, the team started to slump. It was unsure what do with Savard, because of the success Iginla and Conroy had enjoyed.

Eventually, Iginla was primarily kept on Conroy’s line and Savard was forced to play with less talented linemates, and saw his
production drop accordingly. Last year Savard enjoyed a career year, scoring 65 points, but his shortcomings, namely poor defensive play, were overlooked. Savard was a +12 last season, but his lack of commitment to the defensive game really came under scrutiny this year now that he has only 18 points in 33 games. In Read more»
