Ottawa (AP) – Even before his first game with the Ottawa Senators, ice hockey talent Tim Stutzle is causing a stir in many ways.
The social media department has extensively changed documents at almost every location in the hall of its new team in the world’s best ice hockey league, with photographs for fans. And on Tuesday they will also receive information about an important decision by the attacker: Stutzl will also be called Stutzle on the jersey. Not with Ü and ue, as most people in North America write it automatically. Anyone who has already ordered Asha’s carrier’s jersey should contact the shop.
The team in the capital of southeastern Canada does not state how many. But if you put up a strong performance in the U20 World Cup, which is closely followed in Canada, and Coach DJ Smith’s final remarks as a guide, perhaps few. After an internal friend, Smith said, “He’s going to drive people out of their seats. It’s just a matter of time. All he has to do is get into the habit of the NHL, how fast and how fast fritters change.” “For a guy who comes from the Junior World Championship, flies here, sits in a hotel for a week and only had one training session: you can see his speed, mobility and skill for tricks.”
Senators in the NHL are hoping for all of this from the supporters trained by Adler Mannheim as soon as possible. In the last three seasons, the team was either the last or the best in their department, with the 18-year-old Warshener should the future role be better. In the third place, the owners selected him in the draft, only once did a team decide so quickly for a player with a German passport: Edmonton Oilers for Leon Dreiszital in 2014. And he was the NHL’s top scorer last season and the first German to be the most valuable professional in the league – both by other players and by reporters.
But the 25-year-old from Cologne still knows how difficult it was to get there. He was quickly sent back to the Juniors himself, had to fight and be vocal and therefore now warned against Stutzl’s very high expectations. “Tim is still very, very young and it’s really hard to get into the league and play straight there. You have to be careful not to push too much or have too many expectations. A young man like him has to work his way up first. Occasionally find it, and maybe that takes a little time at first, ”said Dreissetel of the German press agency.
Stutzel will turn 19 on Friday. It is also the day that the Senators go to their first game of the season against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
