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.

The OHL’s Top Grinders

by Robert Moore
on

In a league where offensive stars like Jason Spezza, Derek Roy, Patrick
O’Sullivan, Stephen Weiss, Nate Robinson, and Rick Nash are the most
recognized. There are players known as the “grinders” who open up the
space
for these skill players to score. They are the players that drive to the
net, throw the hits, and the type of players that always give their all,
and
you always want them out on the ice during the crucial moments of a tight game. Here are (in my opinion) the best grinders in the “O” in no particular order:

Daniel Paille (6’0″ – 184lbs) In only his second year in the league,
Guelph’s Danny Paille has lived up to the expectations put on him when he
was drafted 6th overall in the 2000 OHL draft. Paille is one of those
players who you need on your team. Paille, 17, fits a lot of grit and
leadership into his 6’0″, 184lbs frame. The leadership skills he shows on a
nightly basis, may just land him the “C” next year, as this years captain Morgan McCormick moves on. Paille’s main attributes are his work along the
boards, his 100% a shift work ethic, and his ability to take the
punishment
to score goals. When I watch Paille play, he really reminds me of a young
Adam Deadmarsh. He has a great balance of skill and grit, he also shows a
lot of character off the ice. Look for him to be selected during the first
two rounds of the 2002 NHL entry draft.

Kris Vernarsky (6’2″ – 207lbs) Kris is a veteran of the Ontario Hockey
League, in this, his fourth season. His offensive ability is beginning to
show a little more than it has in t Read more»

Trio of Avangard’s Hawks: A Kalashnikov machine gun or a hockey stick?

 

This
year two of Omsk’s forwards, Stanislav Chistov and Alexander Svitov, who were
drafted in the first round 5th and 3rd overall, had to switch their hockey
uniform for kaki pants and shirt.  Due
to the conflict between Avangard and NHL Anaheim and Tampa Bay teams, the young
players became military personnel and had to spend several weeks in barracks. 
The players hardly had time to resume playing in the Super League when
clouds appeared above their heads once again.

Czech Republic – Switzerland Under-16 teams game recap

by Ivana Paulova
on

By Robert Neuhauser and Ivana Paulova

Czech and Swiss Under-16 teams met for the first time in a series of three games that are going to be played this weekend. Check out the recap of this game including the coache’s and player’s comments!

On November, 9th, 2001 there was the first playing day of a three-game series in which the Under-16 teams of the Czech Republic and Switzerland test their skills against each other. The first contest took place in Kralupy nad Vltavou a town only 10 miles from Czech capital Prague. Like every year, the Czech roster boasts lots of NHL prospects. Those players, born 1986 are still far away from being concerned as players who will turn into sure-fire NHL stars but already at this time it is obvious that some of them will probably be called blue-chippers coming the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. On the Czech side goalie Marek Schwarz, a Sparta Praha midgets starter is most likely going to be another in a long series of quality Czech netminders, defensemen Adam Lukacovic, also from Sparta, captains the squad as Jakub Sindel is on a stint with the Under-17 team, and he along with Lubomir Stach of Vsetin are also very good prospects who can have a NHL future. At forward the brightest stars are Michal Birner, a Slavia Praha midgets sophomore, Karel Hromas and Jan Dusatko of Sparta and Vitkovice midgets winger Petr Pohl.

And those players took on the Swiss squad. The Czech team seemed to be in control of the game since the opening faceoff and Radek Smolenak had the first scoring chance on his stick as he received a pass as he crossed the Read more»

Capitals’ Prospects in Portland

by Caitlin LoCascio
on

Here is a look at ten of the Capitals prospects playing in Portland through Game 13.

Veteran defenseman Patrick Boileau has been amazing this past week. Despite an injured ankle, he scored two goals on Wednesday night and looked great tonight.

Krys Barch has a broken arm and will not be playing for several weeks.

Tonight was Nolan Yonkman‘s first game of the regular season and he had a solid start. He seemed more physical than before. He did not play all that many shifts and is still easing his way back into the game after a knee injury.

The Pirates should keep Jason Ulmer and Brad Church on a line together for as long as possible. They are well aware that their spots in Portland can (and have been) taken away, and both were willing to stand on their heads for the team tonight. Ulmer scored the Pirates’ first goal of the night on an incredibly low-percentage shot from the side of the net that was impressive. Church set up both goals of the evening.

Barrie Moore appears to really be getting in the swing of things and looked much more like his old self this past week. He got his first point on Wednesday night and looked very good and very solid tonight.

My opinion on Kyle Clark is dropping rapidly. He used to have the occasional brillant play that would help to make up for the fact he would do nothing else for an entire game, but the past two weeks he has done absolutely nothing. The fact he is 6’7 is far less of a bonus than expected because he rarely uses this to his advantage. Read more»
