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.

Red Wings Report: WJC Review

The Detroit Red Wings had 5 prospects at this years World Junior Championships, Swedes, Pär Bäcker and Andreas Jämtin, WHL star Tomas Kopecky was playing for Slovakia, last years first pick 62nd overall, Igor Grigorenko played for Russia and the 19 year old defeseman Miroslav Blatak who was playing for the home team of Czech Republic.

Tomas Kopecky

Position: C
Team: Lethbridge, WHL
Born: 1982
Height: 6-03
Weight: 195
Draft: 2000 draft, 2nd round, 38th overall

         Ga - Go - Ass - Po - Pim
WJC:  7  -   3   -  5  -   8 -   22

Tomas made his third and final apperience at the WJC for Slovakia. After last years dissapointing tournament Kopecky returned to the team after a great start in the WHL with Lethbridge where he left of as the second leading scorer in the entire league with 49 points in 32 games.

Tomas was expected to lead the team at this years tournament, and so he did. He was the best and most consistant player on the team. He recorded points in all but one game. Tomas finished tied for 5th place overall in the scoring with 3 goals and 5 assists in 7 games, he also had 22 penalty minutes and was +6.

Kopecky was not only an offensive force, he was also great defensively. He played a great two-way game and used his size and strenght to his advantage. He stood up and helped his teammates in rough situations and gave backup to his defensemen.

Kopecky had a great showcase at this years “juniors” and proved that he is a very good and important prospect for Detroit. He has shown that he c Read more»

Islanders Look to the AHL for Veterans

by Bill Bennett

Anyone who has watched Islander games all season have seen  Peter Laviolette ride his top four defenders to big minutes. With Roman Hamrlik sidelined until likely after the Olympics and Radek Martinek out for the season, it has now become a two-man show on defense with Kenny Jonsson and Adrian Aucoin seemingly never off the ice for long, even on nights the Isles dress seven defenders. How long can this continue ?
 
With that in mind the Islanders added three forwards this week and are signed for the remainder of the season. Kip Miller (brother of asst coach Kelly Miller)  becomes an Islander for a record third time, Ted Donato begins his second stint and Jim Cummins makes his Islander debut.
 
The only price for this tri–fecta is Dave Roche, who was leading the SoundTigers in scoring and was assigned to the Mighty Ducks AHL affiliate in Cincinnati in the Cummins deal.
 
Background:
Kip Miller, 32, playing center for the Grand Rapid Griffiths of the Ahl. Was the leading scorer in the league with 21 goals and 56 points in 41 games. If Miller is sent down he must play in Grand Rapids because they maintain his AHL rights.
 
Ted Donato, 33, playing left wing for the Manchester Monarchs of the Ahl. Had 13 goals and 32 points in 25 games and was the teams leading scorer.
 
Jim Cummins, 31, playing right wing for the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks of the Ahl. Is a natural right wing who is being brought Read more»

USHL – Black Hawks make moves to bolster playoff hopes

by pbadmin

With the trading deadline at midnight Tuesday night, the Waterloo Black Hawks phone was pretty busy. The Black Hawks and head coach Scott Koberinski made three deals before the USHL trading deadline. In the first deal Waterloo sent USHL defensive veteran Eric Weum, who has been out for awhile with mono, to the Great Falls Americans of the AWHL.

In return the Hawks get the Americans captain Zac Headrick who on the season has amassed 6 goals and 25 assists to go with 128 penalty minutes. Headrick led all defenseman in the AWHL in scoring. Waterloo also sent forward Nate Hansen to the Des Moines Buccaneers in return for Andrew Nelson. Nelson totaled 6 goals and 9 assists on the year for the Bucs. In the final trade of the day Waterloo also sent recently acquired big man Keith Boyer to Des Moines in exchange for forward Ross Carlson. On the year Carlson has 5 goals and 12 assists. Final rosters are not set until early in February.

The Black Hawks hope the new offensive minded defenseman and experienced forwards will help push the Hawks over the hump and into contention for a potential playoff spot. Currently Waterloo is 10-19-1 for 21 and 12th place out of a 13 team league. The 8th and final playoff spot is currently held by the Chicago Steel who have 30 points. If Waterloo can shore up it’s offensive problems and keep their solid goaltending they are just a winning streak away from getting into the final spot.
