STUTZLE SIDELINED WITH INJURY, FORMER HAB TO TAKE HIS PLACE VS WINNIPEG

The Ottawa Senators are only two games into their 2020-21 campaign and they'll already be without arguably the team's biggest star when they battle the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Senators forward Tim Stutzle did not take the morning skate on Tuesday, and will not play against the Jets, the Sens announced. The team added that he is dealing with a minor injury and his status is day-to-day.



With the absence of Tim Stutzle, former Montreal Canadien Alex Galchenyuk took line rushes in the German forwards spot at the morning skate. All signs are pointing to Galchenyuk making his Senators debut on Tuesday, on the second line with Derek Stepan, and Evgenii Dadonov.



Stutzle, 19, was drafted in the first round, third overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. So far, in two games this season, Stutzle has 1 point (1 G), 2 penalty minutes, and is a +1. He scored his first career NHL goal on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he batted the puck out of mid-air, and past goaltender Jack Campbell.

Internationally, Stutzle has represented Germany on many occasions, most recently at the 2021 IIHF World Hockey Championships where he was named captain. In 5 games, he tallied 10 points (5 G, 5 A), 8 penalty minutes, and was a -4, as Germany finished sixth after losing to Russia in the quarterfinals. The 2021 tournament was Germany's first time qualifying for the playoff round at the World Juniors. For his efforts, Stutzle was named best forward of the tournament, and was named to the media All-Star team.
