The Ottawa Senators head into Toronto looking to be the team to finally end goaltender Jack Campbell’s undefeated season and what better team do that than the Sickos.

Player to Watch: Tim Stützle

The Senators prized rookie has been held without a goal over the past 13 games and will hopefully shake the monkey off his back versus the goaltender he scored his first career NHL goal against.

Nothing but good memories for the Senators 3rd overall pick versus Campbell and he has the perfect opportunity to create a few more tonight. Despite not scoring in the Senators last game, Stützle turned in one of, if not his best game during his recent slump registering 6 shots on net while spending 18:23 on the ice.

Stützle’s 20 points places him 5th among NHL rookies while being a focal point of opposing teams gameplans, something that most other rookies have the luxury of avoiding. It’s common for rookies to go through low points during the season and while Stützle has been lacking in production, his dynamic skating and offensive arsenal makes him always noticeable regardless of what happens on the scoresheet.
