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.

Leafs prospect rankings 11-20

Leaf Prospect Rankings 11-20


The age of the prospect is taken into account.


11. Miguel Delisle-RW:
Almost an afterthought on day one of the 2000 draft, Delisle has come a long way from the temper tantrums that saw him fall out momentarily with 67’s Coach Brian Kilrea and got back with the program and made himself a player. Already NHL big at 6’1″ and 200 pounds, Delisle has very good wheels and his release has been compared to Mike Bossy’s in the past. He could be a bit more curmudgeony in his physical play, but that aside, the kid has a bright future.


12. Ivan Kolozvary-LW:
Although he played the middle in the recent World Junior Championships, the Leafs probably see him as an outside burner ala Milan Hejduk, whom he resembles both physically and in the skating department. Although he’s adept with both passing and finishing at speed, whether he’ll ever approach the level of proficiency demonstrated by the Avs forward and whether he can withstand the rigours of the North American game remains to be seen.


13. Jaroslav Sklenar-RW:
Possibly did himself a big disservice by checking out of the Ottawa 67’s earlier in the year for HC Kosice of the Slovakian League but is a tall, lanky 6’1″ 172 pound winger with a knack for getting his stick loose in tight spaces around the net. The is also little question about his skating which is quite good but his defense could use some improvement and he’ll need to fill out more. Then again, at 18 years old, he has plenty of time for both.

David Inman examined

by Michael Theodore
on

After lighting it up in the OHA in 97-98, expectations were high for David Inman who was born in New York City but was raised in Toronto. He was supposed to be one of the top college freshmen. He was supposed to be a first round draft pick. He was supposed to be a star for Notre Dame. Instead Inman finished with 20 points in 38 games along with tons of scouts scratching their heads. Undaunted, Inman was still a fairly high draft pick (59th overall) of the New York Rangers. The scouts like most experts, figured Inman would rebound and show the same talent that made him a top prospect a year earlier. What they saw during Inman’s sophomore season was a player who had all the tools needed to be a star, minus all hockey sense imaginable.

During the 99-00 season, Inman’s game was marked by both highs and lows. There were stretches when it appeared things were finally starting to click. These streaks however were short lived as Inman would inevitably fall back into a slide and look perpetually lost on the ice. He didn’t have the vision to make smart plays, and his shots often couldn’t find the net or simply didn’t even leave his stick at all. To make matters worse, Inman found himself being knocked around the ice due to his smallish frame of 180 pounds.

As his junior year neared, Inman added 25 pounds to his frame and hopes were high that at the age of 20 that he could finally begin to develop as planned. While Inman would play five more games than the previous season, he would actually have two fewer goals and one less assist than his sophomore cam Read more»
