C - OTT
Tim Stutzle scored a goal and had two shots on goal during Ottawa's 4-2 loss to Edmonton. He also added a blocked shot in 15:08 minutes of ice time.
The goal is his third of the season and Stutzle has now scored in back-to-back games. The rookie is still feeling his way in the NHL and is looking for his first assist in seven games played. Ottawa will likely have a tough season but look for Stutzle to get plenty of experience in all situations this season.
Tim Stutzle who was the number three overall pick by Ottawa will start the season playing left wing according to Senators general manager Pierre Dorion.
Even as he continues his outstanding play at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship, (five goals, five assists) in his first four games, expectations for the talented prospect need to be tempered. The Senators recently traded for centers Derek Stepan and Cedric Paquette in order to mentor Stutzle and ease his transition into the NHL.
