The start of assessing potential future Ottawa Senators is now with German Forward Tim Stützle

The dynamic center/winger has the opportunity to be the highest drafted player from Germany at second overall, and surpass superstar Leon Draisaitl for the honour.

There’s no denying why scouts fell in love with Stützle whenever he graced the ice, whether, against men in Germany’s top league (DEL) or in the World Juniors, he constantly made his mark. Being a huge riser in this year’s draft means that he could unveil even more potential that he could tap into on his way to being a star in the NHL.

Stützle and Sudbury forward Quinton Byfield have been in the middle of consistent debate for the potential second overall selection which the Los Angeles Kings hold.

While either player would be no consolation prize, Stützle brings a different gear while he’s on the ice, and would put fans in the seat to watch the immensely talented forward.
