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.

2016 NHL Draft Preview: Less touted Sweden group still features solid talents led by Asplund

Filip Gustavsson - Team Sweden

Another season has come and gone, and Sweden is again looking to see a number of their young hockey prospects become NHL properties. Nonetheless, it will probably be fewer than in recent years where it has been commonplace to see upwards of 20 Swedes being taken in the NHL Draft. Read more»

There may not be a better drafting team in the second round than the St. Louis Blues. They have found plenty of gems beyond the first round – from Steve Staios, Igor Korolev, Jay McClement, and Jochen Hecht to David Backes and Jake Allen – and the same can be said for 2011. Read more»

There is a lot of high-end talent from the OHL entering this year’s NHL Draft – and you could have spent most of this season travelling a 400-km stretch of the 401 catching most of it.

The London Knights, Mississauga Steelheads, and Windsor Spitfires dominate this year’s rankings – and arguably, all three teams have other players who could hear their names called early on in this year’s draft. Read more»

While it feels like decades given the current state of the organization, it was just five years ago that the Boston Bruins went into the NHL Draft with the rare daily double of a top-10 pick and possession of Lord Stanley’s cup, having just won its first title in 39 years that June. Read more»

In the span of a year and one month, Finnish forward Patrik Laine produced a body of work that would be impressive for players even many years older than the 18-year-old winger. Read more»
