Get excited, Ottawa Senators fans. Sure, Erik Karlsson, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene are history... but the next generation is on its way. Thomas Chabot, Brady Tkachuk and now 3rd overall pick Tim Stuetzle are ready to blaze a new path for this team.
If you haven't been watching Stuetzle and team Germany at the World Junior Championships this holiday season, well... I don't know what to tell you. Put simply, you're missing out on some fantastic hockey. Stuetzle has top end speed, creativity and finishing ability. He's really the full package when it comes to dynamic, offensive talent.
I mean... just check out this beautiful goal he scored last night:
A closer look:
Not only does this kid have skill and speed, but he also has the determination to stick with it, fight through checks and take the puck to the net. You can't coach that kind of drive. I can't wait to see this kid tear it up in the NHL.
