I LOVE DUISBURG .. well in a way. Because of their home desaster vs. cologne which they lost with 11 goals against the maanagement decided to open the dooors for free for all fans for the next homer - lets say as compensation to come back again. By choice that game is against the Lions .. so I and a big big bunch of guys travel there on sunday for a road trip to see the game - of course - for free and spend the money at the arena bar

GO LIONS !!!

Well, Hamburg sure has a good offense this season, especially at home. Last year you couldn't really expect them to score more than three goals in a game, this year they haven't done it at home only once in seven games.
Now, if they could play better defense I would be really happy

Some numbers:
34 goals in 7 home-games, 24 goals against. In the last five home-games it's even 27-21, which is close to 10 goals per game!

Six players have a point per game or more, the most astonishing numbers being Brandner scoring ten goals in eleven games and Brad Smyth having 23 points in 11 games. Five of the top ten scorers in the league play for Hamburg!

Greg Classen just scored his first goal against Augsburg, he actually scored three of them on his way to six points
Smyth followed closely with five assists.

Frankfurt seems to find its rhythm. They've won 6-3 in Duisburg today, leading 6-1 in the second period.
Peter Podhradsky produced awesome eight points in the last three games.
Furthermore the Lions got 13 points out of the last five games, though they are missing some core player with Lebeau, Smrek, Hackert and Reichel.

I was really worried with all these injuries...then it seems Podhradsky and Peacock have taken the team on their shoulders Let's hope they keep rolling

Tonight against the Tigers guys. They just bit at home this season so I'm kind of confident for the result of th game ... also with Lebeau back. Lets see how Lebeau and Kelly klick together or if the chemistry vanishes with both back on the ice ... I hope it appears like the last games


GO LIONS !!!


may it be another entertaining one

American Girl Seeking Hockey In Berlin!

Hello everyone!

I have a question regarding hockey in Berlin. I will be vacationing in Berlin in March (the 19th through the 27th to be exact) and I really don't think I can go that long without watching some hockey! So do you have any suggestions as to who I should watch and where they play?? I'm sorry to bug you guys with such questions but I really do want to see some hockey while I am in Berlin! I mean, what else is a girl going to do there anyway!!??

@Remy: At the time when you will be in Berlin, there are already Play offs in the DEL. Which means if Berlin misses the Play Offs (which I hope they won't because I am from Berlin) there will only be minorleague hockey played in Germany's capital when you're there.
Here are the dates for the DEL-Play-Off-quarter-finals (as sheduled at the moment) that might be interesting for you if the "Eisbären Berlin" get into Play-offs:
March 20. (maybe 25. and 30.) if they finsh 1.-4. in main season, otherwise it would be March 23., (maybe 27.)
Quarterfinals are played as a best-of-7 series.

Maybe there are also games of the "Eisbären Juniors" when you're in Berlin. They play in the so called "Oberliga" which is Germany's third league. But I don't know about that at the moment.

Both teams play in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen in the "Wellblechpalast".

There are more hockey-teams in Berlin which play in the fourth league or less but I believe you wanted to see some "good" hockey

Hope that helps you.

PS: Better ask again end February/beginning march 2007...

Danke! (Ooo, did I "say" that right??)

I'm basically up for any hockey really. I just need to get my fix! I'll definitely check back at the end of February (hmmmm, I may even check out this thread daily to keep up with things).

I am curious though, if it's not too much trouble...when I decide who I am going to see might someone help me figure out where it is they play and the best way to get tickets. If it's too much of a hassle that's OK too, I'll figure it out somehow.

Thanks again!

"Danke" is absolutely right.
If you decide to see the "Eisbären" (polar bears) you can pm me and I'll give you the informations you need. Their official web-site is - well - ok for those who understand German, but everyone else: forget it!
But since there's still a lot of time until March 2007: wait and see what happens until then...

OK, I will leave you guys alone for now and wait until March to see what happens with the Eisbären. But in the mean time, I will be secretly rooting for them to go as far as possible...so I can see some hockey while I am in Berlin.

Thanks again for your help!

Does anyone know if Phil Huber is still playing?

Or if any fans had any memories of him playing for thier team

He used to be one of my favourite players for Humberside Hawks back in 1996. He got his dual nat German/Canadien passport at the end of that season.
He went to Germany and played for Munich and Krelfeld winning the playoffs with them.

he was last seen in the oberliga I think

Any help would be gratefully appreciated as Im doing a programme article on former players

www.hockeydb.com says that he is not active anymore.
But I do not know if this is correct.
Statistics say he last played for EV Ravensburg in lower divisions in the 04/05 season.
Hope this helps

I´ve seen him a couple of times. He was a player that you want in your own team, I hated him as a player of the opponent team.

Good player though, an agiator with scoring touch.

Berlin signed Jeff Jillson for the season and Kyle Wharton to a two-week tryout.

Lets see how Jillson fares in the DEL. His defensive shortcomings shouldn't be as obvious as in the NHL, so it could turn out quite well. I wish the Freezers would have a defenseman with so much offensive potential.

Hey, I've been thinking of playing junior hockey in Germany. I have a skill level of Junior B in Ontario. What compares to that over there?

Good question, but hard to answer. How old are you exactly? And are you coming here, for example, for a high school year abroad anyways? Germany's top junior league is the DNL and it's a league that has established itself nicely over the past 5 years. It's good competition and many of the players having played there are just now becoming fine young DEL players. The DEL is Germany's top league and most comparable to the AHL in over playing level. There are tons of North Americans, both ex-NHLers and those who were only on the cusp of making it. Many well-known and high scoring AHLers and ECHLers are currently playing here.

Anyways, there are also teams in the leagues just under the DNL and the skill level and game tempo can be surprisingly high quality. Do you know where you want to go in Germany or is this all just theoretical at this point? Don't forget that every foreigner over the age of 10 must apply for a transfer card which costs between 500-700 Euro and takes a good two months to process. That's something any and every German team will take into consideration. In addition, even if someone is capable of playing in the DNL, it is a league that concentrates almost solely on German players, since that is the point of the league itself.... to develop German players at a high level.

Good lord, another home loss for the Freezers...

Apart from a few minutes each period, they weren't really into the game. The only thing worse then the team was the absolute disgraceful, idiotic and truly pathetic behaviour of a pretty large group of the "fans". Looking at Hamburg's fanboard, this shouldn't have surprised me. On the other hand, the HSV has pretty much the same bs fanboard and it got this bad only once in all the years.

I'm 16 at the moment, just seeing my options. I'm interested in going over for a year or so for school, and playing hockey. My friends brother played over there a few years ago (Nick Anstett), and he said he enjoyed it. I'm definitely not at a pro level yet, but at a junior hockey level. Which league would I be able to play?

What is going on with the Lions??? I thought they were getting their act together and now after yesterday's Halloween loss they have me concerned once again. Too much talent for this team not to be playing better. Any word on Smrek?

They´re obviously not the team the fans 'want to see' and that´s all about it - for now. Time will tell.

Hey! Seems as if the news that Denis Pederson is coming back to Berlin, pushed the team in today's game. They won 5:1 against Hannover.
Hope the "Eisbären" go on like that on Sunday - I want to see a good game!

Steve Kelly in trouble once again.

Looks like the Lions will have a huge decision to make. Cherno is on a must win basis to hold his job and Steve Kelly pulled an embarrassing fit in the 1 - 0 win over the Iserlohn Roosters. Cherno stated in the paper that Kelly will pay and disciplinary measures will be taken. Seems that a penalty was called on Kelly who then had a 'breakdown' and started banging the plexiglass with his stick until it broke into pieces. The yelling and gestures at the referee continued until Kelly had to be escorted off the ice by a teammate. The penalty minutes recorded on the Del.org are listed as 2+2+20+20. I am sure that the incident will be reviewed by the league and I wouldn't be surprised if Kelly is out of a job, once again. My sources tell me that the players have voted to get rid of the trouble maker, but he does rack up the points which the team needs right now. What would you do?
