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.

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

Between the Pipes

by Jason Hegler

I must say that I am somewhat surprised regarding the nature of responses my last article on the Canadian Olympic dilemma provoked. I have watched a number of interviews with Wayne Gretzky and detected a level of stress under his calm demeanor and Hollywood smile. Surely, he is looking forward to when the selection process is finally over and he can pass off this carefully chosen team to a coaching staff that will further shape and test this squad. Once this occurs, he will be able to become a fan again along with millions of other Canadians. In response to the last commentary, many of you debated over who should and should not be selected. One name in particular stood out from the rest…..this being Patrick Roy. This is especially interesting given the events of the past week and warrants further discussion.

Recently, star goaltender and future Hall of Famer Patrick Roy announced that he would not be attending the upcoming Olympics in Salt Lake City. Roy is staying “true to form” by avoiding media and being reclusive. Although documented reasons for his decision have not come forth, many speculate that he is not willing to fight for a job or play second fiddle to another netminder. Consequently, there have been mixed reactions from the general public.
Some individuals may actually be relieved by this news.

There are those of us who feel that Patty may be too old and that his career is winding down. Others feel that he has been fortunate to play on elite teams and that his numbers do not accurately represent his level of talent. Supporters o Read more»

Hurricanes Sharpen Game Against Blades

Hurricanes Sharpen Game Against Blades

The Hurricanes continued their march back to the CHL top 10 tonight by handing the Blades a 4-1 loss. Lethbridge used a great first period to push their home record to an an impressive 11-3-1, the Blades fell to 4-7-1 on the road.

The Canes came out flying in the first just as they’ve done all year long. It was the usual suspects getting the scoring started as Ryley Layden notched his 11th marker of the year, Nathan Barrett and Tim Green assisted on the goal. Less then two minutes later the Canes added another to their total as Brett O’Malley took advantage of a Blades give-away and flipped a shot low blocker side on Michael Garnett, who started in net for Saskatoon. The second goal silenced the Blades fans in attendence, which was quite a surprise amount since a trip from Saskatoon is a mighty trek. The Blades continued what was turning into a bad period when Tim Preston took a cross-checking minor. The Canes put the league’s fourth best powerplay to work and it wasn’t long before it clicked.Tim Green finished off a beautiful pass from New Jersey Devil draft pick Phil Cole. Green fired home a one timer from the side of the crease after Cole made a bullet of a pass across from the opposite point, Garnett didn’t have a chance. The Canes weren’t done yet and either was Tim Green. Green scored his second of the game, 16th of the season, with less then a minute left when he took a soft Nathan Barrett pass and fired the puck high blocker side past Garnett. The assist to Barret was his second of the night, he now has a league l Read more»

Czech WJC team will need CHL help

by Robert Neuhauser
on
After the home tournament in Olomouc and Prostejov, Czech Under-20 team head coach Jaroslav
Holik stated that there will be changes needed before the last preparational tournament
for the upcoming the WJC that was held in Vaasa, Finland. Now we see that the changes will have to be
more serious. The Czech team finished at the last place again and that makes lots of Czech
fans, who are hoping in keeping the WJC gold medal streak alive, quite mad. They want to
see their players fight for gold and not to struggle. So let’s have a look who could be named
to the final roster and there will be lots of CHL names there. They are more needed than
ever. The Czechs don’t have a very strong 1982 birthyear and with the problems the teams
build of players playing in Europe had expect at least seven CHL players to make the team.
The only problem is that the arrival of Columbus Blue Jackets’ blueliner Rostislav Klesla
and Colorado Avalache left wing (but played his whole career at center) Vaclav Nedorost
remain a dream. So who is the reality?

Goaltenders

Lukas Hronek – HC Slavia Praha goalie got his chance after the starter Roman Malek suffered
a broken jaw and he stunned the Extraleague with his savvy play and spectacular saves.
Along with Martin Barek played for all junior teams consisting of 1982 born players. A very
mature goalie for his age with exceptional quickness and reflexes, Lukas couldn’t play in
Finland because of an injury but he seems to be a lock on the WJC team.

Brampton’s Jays Hoping To Shine On World Stage

by Mark McDonald
on

The Brampton Battalion’s two Jays – Jay Harrison and Jay McClement, earned invitations to the 2002 Canadian Junior Team selection camp to be held at York University’s Beatrice Ice Gardens in Toronto from December 10th to 17th. The two OHL veterans are hoping to join their coach, Stan Butler, to the Czech Republic to help Canada reclaim the gold medal that has eluded them since 1997.

Harrison (Toronto, 3rd round 2001), vying for a spot on the team for the second consecutive year, is a fourth-year defenseman enjoying his best offensive season thus far in 2001-02. With five goals and 13 assists in 26 games thus far, he has already reached a personal high in goals for a season and is two away from his personal best in points.

Harrison saw little ice time as the 7th defenseman on the Canadian team that won bronze in Moscow last year, but gained valuable experience and hopes to use that to his advantage during the selection camp and during the tournament. While his offensive numbers are relatively impressive this season, Harrison’s real and natural strengths are found in his own end. If he does in fact make the team, Harrison’s defensive abilities will likely see him called on to kill important penalties and to neutralize some of the opposition’s top marksmen.

However, despite his extensive experience in international play (he also played in the 1999 World Under-18 tournament, earning top defenceman honours) and his presence on last year’s National Junior Team roster, Harrison is no lock to make this year’s squad. Besides the fact that names like Bouwmees Read more»
