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.

Wheeling hires Alain Lemieux

by Erik Johnson
on

The Wheeling Nailers, ECHL affiliate of the Pens, hired Alain Lemieux as
their new head coach replacing Murray Eaves (who is the brother of
former Pens asst. Mike Eaves).

Lemieux is, of course, the older brother of Pens owner Mario Lemieux.
Alain was the coach of the ECHL’s Jacksonville Lizard Kings last year
before they suspended operations at the end of the season.

The Pens also announced that they will be making more of an effort to
help the Nailers on and off the ice. The Pens signed a 5 year management agreement with Wheeling 2 yeaes ago, but interaction between the organizations has been limited the first 2 years because of off-ice bankruptcy problems with the Pens and the startup of their own AHL franchise last year. The Pens plan on sending 5 to 6
players to the Nailers this season, as opposed to the 1 player (Tom O’Connor) that they sent
each of the last 2.

They will also be doing some cross-promotions with Wheeling on their
respective websites.

1999-2000-A Season Full of Ups And Downs

by Brad Coccimiglio

Despite the fact that the OHL season finished up over a month ago it’s never too late to look back at the season past. In this season summary you will find almost everything you need to know about the 1999-200 OHL season.

The OHL sure had it’s share of turmoil this year. The Barrie Colts had plenty of run-ins with Commissioner David Branch’s office over the course of the 1999-2000 season. The Colts were the OHL’s version of “Team Turmoil”. With all of the problems that they had it was surprising that they were as successful as they were. We won’t get into those problems though. Many teams did better than expected this year while some weren’t quite as successful. Here is a brief look back at each team’s season:

Barrie Colts

Regular Season: 43-19-6-1, 93 points, Division-1st, Conference-1st, Overall-2nd

Playoffs: Won league title, Lost in Memorial Cup final to Rimouski (QMJHL)

Leading Scorer: Sheldon Keefe (48-73-121)

Another in a series of weekly articles designed to summarize activities in Leafland during the previous 7 days – with some personal observations, commentary, prospect updates and fun thrown in for good measure.

What’s next: After several weeks of intensive activity featuring the Entry Draft, the successful pursuit of new players in the unrestricted free agent market and negotiating with their own restricted free agents, off season activity down at the ACC seems to have abated somewhat… Coach/GM Pat Quinn is currently relaxing on a friend’s yacht somewhere off the Greek Islands… however, when he returns, Quinn must deal with the following pieces of unfinished business…

- Hire a second Assistant Coach to replace the recently departed Alpo Suhonen

- Hire/promote 1 or more front office types to fill several holes in the Hockey Department

- Lock up free agents Perreault, Karpovtsev and others on new multi-year contracts

- Find someone who can quarterback the team’s anemic powerplay

- Decide whether or not to get involved in the upcoming Eric Lindros Sweepstakes
