2022! Timo Pielmeier extends contract

ERC Ingolstadt and Timo Pielmeier have agreed on extending the contract until 2022. The German national team goalie says: "I have not even accepted offers from other clubs as it was clear as day to me that I want to stay with the Panthers. I am really happy to be part of the team for five more years."
After years overseas in North America and a year in DEL2, Pielmeier joined the Panthers in 2013. He received the award as Rookie of the Year and lead Ingolstadt with outstanding saves to the Championship 2014.

"Ingolstadt has developed to a top adress in hockey in a last years", says Pielmeier. "You can see that regarding my team mates." Other than Pielmeier, the forwards Brandon Buck (2020) and Thomas Oppenheimer (2021) have longterm contracts. Then, other important players such as captain Patrick Köppchen, Benedikt Kohl, Dustin Friesen, Petr Taticek and Patrick McNeill gave their word for next season.
Jiri Ehrenberger, director sports of ERC, says: "I am very happy that Timo stays with us. He is one of DEL's top goalies and very ambitious. He is German team player and has his roots in our region. He perfectly fits with ERC Ingolstadt."
Pielmeier, whose brother Thomas is a forward for the Panthers, comes from the nearby town of Deggendorf. "Ingolstadt lays in the beautiful land of Bavaria where my heart is at. I am really happy to play with ERC Ingolstadt until 2022."
