The New Jersey Devils have acquired Timo Pielmeier as part of a four-player swap with the Anaheim Ducks.

Pielmeier has a 3.45 GAA and .896 save percentage in 10 ECHL games this season. The Devils could certainly use young goaltending as they get ready to enter the post-Martin Brodeur years, but Pielmeier isn't necessarily the answer.

Timo Pielmeier has been called up by the Anaheim Ducks.

Pielmeier will probably serve as Curtis McElhinney's backup on Saturday as Jonas Hiller (fatigue) will be unavailable. Pielmeier was drafted in 2007 and there's a chance that he'll make his NHL debut during this stint.

Goaltender Timo Pielmeier was recalled by the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Pielmeier was recalled as back up netminder Curtis McElhinney left the team to be with his wife as the couple are expecting their second child. Pielmeier will continue to earn an NHL salary and have the best seat in the house to watch games until McElhinney returns. He was 10-12-1 with a 3.25 GAA and a .904 save percentage this season for Syracuse and will have no fantasy value.

The Anaheim Ducks recalled goaltender Timo Pielmeier from Bakersfield of the ECHL on Wednesday.

The Ducks were forced to recall the netminder as they traded backup Vesa Toskala earlier in the day and Curtis McElhinney, the new backup, could not get to the game in time. Pielmeier sat on the bench and will be sent back to Bakersfield today when McElhinney arrives in town. At least he got a big league salary for another day.

Anaheim calls up Timo Pielmeier from the ECHL.
