Jan Niklas Pietsch is the offensive most successful defender of SC Riessersee.

So he's far from satisfied.

His “brain farts” also have something to do with this.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen –

You shouldn't close yourself off to new things, to alternatives.

They can broaden horizons, reveal other paths, contribute to further development.

But of course every proposal should be carefully examined and may also be rejected.

Jan Niklas Pietsch had to do that recently after the small series of bankruptcies with SC Riessersee.

There is a chalkboard hanging on the fridge at home, on which white lines can be seen, leading from one side to the other, from top to bottom, in a wild jumble.

Pietsch's son was standing next to the fridge with the chalk in his hand and demanded of his dad: "You have to run like this in the next game." Unfortunately, Pietsch was unable to follow the instructions of his three-year-old boy.

"It was just impossible," he says, laughing.

Strong stats

But when Pat Cortina draws running routes on the board during training and before games, Pietsch implements them to the satisfaction of the coach.

"He does his job well, does what we expected of him." The 31-year-old cleans up at the back - most recently alongside his friend Thomas Schmid - and then repeatedly gets involved in the offensive.

At his previous stations in recent years, he always scored between 27 and 40 points.

At the SCR, he's well on his way to confirming those numbers.

In his 17 appearances to date, he has contributed 14 points (two goals, twelve assists) and is thus the Riesserseer's most successful defender in attack, just ahead of captain Simon Mayr (13 points).

Even more impressive is Pietsch's plus/minus statistic, which is 24.

Pietsch is a perfectionist on the ice

But he is not completely satisfied with that, Pietsch wants more.

"If you're not first, it's difficult to speak of satisfaction." He doesn't mean the internal rankings, but the table of the Oberliga Süd.

Because Pietsch always puts the success of the team ahead of personal ones.

The perfectionist speaks from him, which he is not in private, "but definitely on the ice".

He always tries to get the best out of it.

True to one of his role models, basketball star Stephen Curry.

"It's just brutal what he's doing on the field.

In addition, he seems modest, which makes him likeable.” Curry is almost impossible to defend in the NBA, while Pietsch is difficult to overcome on defense.

"It's very difficult to play against him," says Cortina about the "Big Boy", the 1.87 meter tall and 93 kilogram clearer.

What he still lacks: Pietsch himself has a point.

"Many a brain fart that doesn't work." From time to time he still gets bogged down with his ideas.

Coach Cortina names the "consistency" as a weak point.

That affects the entire team.

Above all, Cortina demands from his team that defense is valued more, more respected.

"We could defend better, but sometimes the players only think about goals, goals, goals." The phrase that the offensive wins games but the defense wins championships is no coincidence.

"That's a big part of ice hockey," emphasizes Cortina.

Pietsch sees the SCR on the right track in this respect, "the direction is right".

Bad Homburger feels at home in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

At the same time, he feels right at home in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

"I like it, my family likes it, everything is great.

I can't say anything bad.” Born in Bad Homburg, the south suits him well.

Initial difficulties are a thing of the past.

So he initially called the white-blues the blue-whites.

Dibelka, who knows the region very well and with whom he hiked to the Wank in the summer, certainly also gave him tutoring on this point.

Now it's his favorite place in the county.

“That was the first mountain I climbed.

There are some in my home country too, but they are only considered hills here,” he says with a smile.

Cortina wants to see the real SCR in Lindau

He is aiming for another top with the SCR, he wants to get to the top of the Oberliga, preferably this season or next - he has a two-year contract - to move up to the DEL2.

The white-blue can take the next step in this direction tonight.

Again and for the last time in this main round, the opponent is EV Lindau.

The game will kick off at 7.30 p.m. at Lake Constance.

Cortina demands a different appearance than the one on November 27th in Lindau (3: 4 from the point of view of the SCR).

"It's our last chance to show who we really are." However, without the injured Ryker Killins and the ill Alexander Höller.

But maybe again with Christoph Eckl, who is training with the team again after his injury.

However, it is not yet certain whether it will be used.

Cortina also asked whether the game would take place at all,

after all, the EVL had to cancel the last two games because they had no more goalies.

The answer from Lindau: It will be played.
