STUTZLE DISCUSSES RECENT INJURY, ALONG WITH TIMELINE FOR RETURN

Tim Stutzle took to the ice for practice on Friday after missing Tuesday and Thursday's games against the Winnipeg Jets with an undisclosed injury. Stutzle says that he sustained this recent injury at the 2021 World Juniors, and it has been nagging him lately.

"I felt good today and we will see what happens tomorrow. It was an injury that happened at the World Jr's." Stutzle said following practice.

He added, "It was really bad at the beginning but I think it's getting better day by day. We will see what happens tomorrow and maybe good to go tomorrow."

After practice, Senators head coach DJ Smith mentioned Stutzle may return tomorrow, and that he will make the trip to Winnipeg with the team. "We have to talk to the trainers to make sure he's 100%. He looked good out there."

"It's just been something that's nagging," Smith said earlier this week. "And it really is minor but something that hampers him to not be able to go, to be at 100 per cent and with a player like that at his age, you know, we're not going to take that risk."

Stutzle, 19, was drafted in the first round, third overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. The Viersen, Germany native has 1 goal, 2 penalty minutes, and is a +1 in 2 games this season.

Despite suffering an injury at the World Juniors, Stutzle had an incredible performance for Germany. In 5 games, he had 10 points (5 G, 5 A), 8 penalty minutes, and was a -4 as Germany finished sixth following a loss to Russia in the quarterfinals. For his efforts, Stutzle was named Best Forward of the tournament, and was named to the media All-Star team.

Ottawa will battle the Winnipeg Jets for the third straight game on Saturday. Puck drop is set for 10pm ET.
