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.

Milroy’s Dominance Starting to Shine Through

by Jeff Bromley

It’s no secret that Duncan Milroy was surprised to find himself traded to the Kootenay ICE last month. It’s also no secret that Milroy is considered something of a dominant offensive force in the WHL. Being a 2001 second round NHL draft pick (37th overall) of the Montreal Canadiens will do that for you. Then for a player walk into a new town for a new team and pick up where he left off on his old club wouldn’t be too far out of the realm of possibility, would it? Perhaps, at least, at first. Filling the shoes of a popular team leader would be daunting by any means but one that actually brought some young fans to tears at the news of the trade? Talk about being behind the eightball.

Period of adjustment, new surroundings, post-trade slump – call it what you will – Milroy was experiencing it, and then some. No pressure or anything. Just replace a player that was not only captain but a tireless worker, played in almost every situation and was viewed upon, rightly or wrongly, as almost never making a mistake.

Duncan Milroy had his work cut out for him.

A month after the trade, Milroy is starting to not only feel more comfortable in the colors of the Kootenay ICE but look more comfortable on the ice too. After last weekend’s three-game set which saw the Edmonton native amass five points and be a factor in every contest, the contribution requested of Milroy is becoming somewhat more clear. And Milroy is eager to respond. “I think I’ve just been playing my game, being myself,” said Milroy after Saturday’s 6-3 win over the Hitmen. “I think I fit in with the tea Read more»

WJC: Interview with Lars Jonsson

by pbadmin

HF: Sweden just finished the game vs Slovakia 2-2 after being down 2-0 later in the third period. What is your view on the match?

Jonsson: We had most of the play but couldn’t score. I’m glad that in the end we could finally convert the many power plays we had.

HF: What about the remainder of the tournament for Team Sweden?

Jonsson: Well with the knockout system there in the quarter finals you have to take it game by game there. My hopes are for a medal, but one bad game and you’re out of contention. First though we face the Czech Republic in our final group match and that will be an important game for us.

HF: What are your personal goals at this WJC?

Jonsson: I try to play as good as I can of course. I know there are a lot of scouts here, but I am here to perform with Sweden, not just for myself. I want to help the team as much as possible.

HF: How do you see your future? Will you move to North America soon?

Jonsson: I don’t know. I take it year by year and see how things go. I don’t think about it too much really.

HF: Your club team, Leksands, has many players in this WJC squad. How come they always have such good young players?

Jonsson: Hard to tell. Leksands is a popular place to go to for kids. They take good care of you with school as well.

HF: Leksands is currently playing in the 2nd league. Will you promote to the Elitserien this year?

Jonsson: That is our big goal for sure. I really hope we succeed.

HF: However if Leksands won’t promote, will the playe Read more»

Hockey’s Future QA with Winterhawk’s Winger Matt Girling

by Glen Crichton

Matt is a skilled winger that isn’t afraid to go to the net and work the walls, taking the hit to make the play. Has an accurate shot and knows how to find open space in the offensive zone to make use of it. Solid two way play and ability to make things happen should open the eyes of NHL scouts. One NHL scout was heard to say, “this kid has the potential to score some goals and if he gets bigger and stronger, will be a solid prospect”.

Matt isn’t as pleased as he’d like to be with the start of this season, he’s been hampered with a groin and hip flexor injury, which he had treated over the Christmas break and with it feeling much better, hopes it will let him get back playing his gritty, offensive game.

Hockeys Future: Last season you had a pretty solid year with 24 points as a sixteen year old rookie, how do you think it went?

Matt Girling: It was okay, it could have been better.

HF: This being your draft year, what expectations did you have?

MG: I plan on having a strong season, showing consistency and not getting hurt or anything and just getting drafted.

HF: What were your goals for the year as far as points?

MG: Put up some great numbers, a lot more than last year, probably sixty points or so and just have a great year.

HF: How do you think its gone so far and what areas of your game do you think need to improve?

MG: The first half of the season I don’t think I was that consistent and I need to be, which will help my game. I’ve had a bit of a leg injury and it’s getting better, Read more»
