Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
We hear the term two-way forward all the time, but never two-way defenseman. Probably because as a defenseman,
your skill set is either good one way or good the other normally, and it's a rare thing to play both ways exceptionally
well like the two Scotts.

But Hiemer I would consider to be one of those. He had the playmaking skills and a good shot, and didn't mess around
in his own end at all.

He largely spent his career playing domestically, but he will always have his 3 seasons in North America, going
between the Devils and the Maine Mariners in that time. He was one of the first German players to play in the NHL.

And his name always got mentioned by Chico Resch when a Devils' defenseman scores 2 goals. He was the first and,
to date, only one to score a hat trick on Halloween night in 1984. Come to think of it, mentioning that game always
seems to jinx the player from getting that third goal.

He would retire in 1996 having been named a German All-Star 5 times and the DEL's Best Defenseman three
times.
Entry Draft: 1981 Third Round Pick (48th overall) by the
Colorado Rockies
