BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – He caught the eye of San Jose scouts while playing for Germany in the World Junior Championships, was noticed by the Anaheim Ducks during his two-year stint in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and now Condors fans are seeing a lot of Timo Pielmeier.
Pielmeier, assigned to the Condors by the Ducks, has started the last three games, won his last five starts and was 6-1-0 during November with a 2.07 goals-against average and .925 save percentage.
Not bad for a 20-year old who started his pro career by allowing seven goals on 19 shots in 40 minutes of play.
“I never had a game like that where the puck was bouncing all around me, on my shin pads and in my goal,” Pielmeier said of the rough outing against Ontario on Oct. 17. “But you need games like that to stay calm.”
