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.

WJC : Switzerland Shuts Out Finland 3-0

by Jonathan Litterine
on

Kari Lehtonen is expected to be a top 5 pick in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft , but on this day he was outplayed by Switzerland’s Tobias Stephan. Stephan stopped all 17 shots he faced , leading the Swiss to the 3-0 victory. Stephan was named Switzerland’s best player in the contest. Finland took penalties at the 1:18 and 1:52 mark and at 2:17 the Swiss cashed in. Andreas Camenzind converted on the power play with the assist going to Rangers prospect Sven Helfenstein.

With 4:55 left Raffaele Sannitz put the Swiss up 2-0. Lehtonen was pulled with just over a minute left , and Andrei Ambuhl hit the empty net. The assist on Ambuhl’s goal went to Phoenix’s 3rd round pick in the 2001 draft , Beat Forster. In the end Switzerland beat the Finns 3-0 , in a penalty filled matchup. Finland took 10 minor penalties , while Switzerland took 6. Finland’s coach Errka Westerlund praised the Swiss for playing a great defensive game and ripped his own team for taking some dumb penalties. Switzerland did a great job shutting down Finland’s two stars , Mikko Koivu and Tuomo Ruutu. Westerlund said his team created some good chances but just weren’t able to finish. He expects a better effort next time out.

USA-Czech Republic WJC game recap

by Robert Neuhauser
on
On Christmas Day, December, 25th, the Czech Under-20 team took on the USA Under-20 squad
in the opening game of the WJC. This was an usual meeting of both opponents, those two
teams met in the regular group also in the previous two years. On the Czech side there
was a change in the net, starter Lukas Hronek was suddenly sidelined with a flu, so backup
Michal Fikrt stood between the pipes and Plzen juniors netminder Petr Sulan was called
back to the team to serve as the backup. Quite surprisingly was hulking Atlanta Thrashers
prospect Libor Ustrnul selected the Czech captain, Tomas Plekanec captained the Czech
squad on the previous tournaments, but finished with only an ‘A’ on his jersey.
The US team was as usual build mostly of college players, with some already drafted players
on the team along with bright prospects. The second cathegory consisted of the likes of
defenseman Ryan Whitney or winger Dustin Brown, a Guelph Storm standout.

So USA captain Richard Umberger and Czech Tomas Plekanec took the opening draw of the
WJC. After the first careful seconds of the game Petr Chvojka went to the penalty box
for interference after 65 seconds played but it was the Czech team who had the first chance.
Filip Novak coralled the puck, unleashed a blast of a shot which was turned away by Jason
Bacashihua in the net for USA, but Ales Hemsky got to the rebound. Bacashihua was lucky
that he couldn’t lift the puck over his left pad. Read more»
