The Ducks have recalled goaltender Timo Pielmeier from the Bakersfield Condors, Anaheim’s development affiliate in the ECHL.
Pielmeier, 20 (7/7/89), did not make an appearance for Anaheim following his original Feb. 25 recall from Bakersfield. Pielmeier has played 42 games for Bakersfield in his rookie season, posting a 20-16-5 record with a 3.09 goals-against average (GAA) and .886 save percentage (SV%). He currently ranks tied for second in the ECHL in wins and ranks third among all rookies in GAA. The 6-0, 197-pound netminder posted a season-high 34 saves in a 6-5 overtime loss at Las Vegas on Feb. 12. Pielmeier was named the ECHL’s Goaltender of the Month in November, going 6-1-0 with a 2.07 GAA and .925 SV% during that span.
Selected by San Jose in the third round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft (83rd overall), Pielmeier appeared in 93 QMJHL contests from 2007-09, posting a 52-37 record with a 2.80 GAA and .912 SV%. He began his North American career in the QMJHL with St. John’s in 2007-08, leading the league in SV% (.911). The native of Deggendorf, Germany also represented his country in the 2005-06 World U-18 Championships and again in 2006-07 at the World Junior Championships.
