This time it’s Timo Pielmeier, who crowded Jean-Phillippe Levasseur out of a job in Bakersfield, picking up the ECHL’s goaltender of the month award. Levasseur was named goalie of the month in the Central Hockey League yesterday.
Pielmeier, 20, went 6-1-0 during the month, boasting a 2.07 goals-against average and a.925 save percentage in eight appearances. The German-born netminder ranks ninth in the ECHL with a 2.78 GAA and is third in the league with eight wins, one shy of the ECHL lead. Pielmeier has more appearances than any other rookie goalie, and is sixth in the league with 713 minutes played.
