All Chris Minard does is score goals. The winger scored them in bunches in the Central Hockey League, he led the ECHL in goals for the Alaska Aces in 2004-05 (Scott Gomez was his center) and he scored a ton of them in the American Hockey League. He even played in the NHL -- albeit just two goals in 40 games.
Still, he's bagged 298 pro goals in 660 games.
And he is currently leading the DEL in Germany in goals with 8-4--12 and +6 totals in 11 games for Kolner Haie. In the interest of fairness, who knows how long that lead will last now that erstwhile Philadelphia Flyers Danny Briere (3-4--7 in 2 games) and Claude Giroux (1-5--6 in 2 games) have joined Eisbaren Berlin on the circuit. Also playing for Berlin is former Aces center Julian Talbot (stats below).
Anyhow, let's check up on the other Alaska connections in the DEL and in Germany's Bundesliga (or second division):
Augsburger Panthers -- Former Aces defenseman Daryl Boyle, who helped them to the 2011 Kelly Cup, is tied for fourth in the league in blueliner points with 1-7--8 and +5 totals in 10 games.
Eisbaren Berlin -- Former Aces center Julian Talbot (2-4--6 and even in 8 games).
Hamburg Freezers -- Former UAA and NHL defenseman Duvie Westcott (2-4--6 and even in 11 games).
Eispiraten Crimmitschau -- Former Aces and UAF winger Cam Keith (3-5--8 in 9 games); former UAF winger Aaron Lee (2-3--5 in 8 games); and former UAF defenseman Darcy Campbell (2-1--3 in 6 games).
Heilbronner Falken -- Former Aces goaltender Kevin Nastiuk (1.68 GAA in 7 games).
Schwenninger Wild Wings -- Dan Hacker of Wasilla is tied for fifth in the league in points (6-6--12 in 9 games).
