2023 Fantasy Outlook
Stutzle's third NHL season was his coming-out party. He racked up 39 goals and 90 points through 78 games. Of those 90 points, 28 came on the power play. Stutzle was one of 19 NHL skaters to tally 90 points last year and he was the youngest of the group. He racked up 228 shots with 114 hits and his 21:16 of ice time per game ranked sixth among all forwards. The 21-year-old is an anchor for the Senators and will continue centering the top line while being a key part of the first power-play unit. With Brady Tkachuk and one of Vladimir Tarasenko or Drake Batherson by his side, Stutzle should push for the 100-point club as one of the game's top forwards in 2023-24. Read Past Outlooks

Stutzle said Thursday that he dealt with a shoulder injury during the 2023-24 campaign, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Stutzle will need another opinion in terms of whether or not he'll require surgery. The talented center missed the last seven games of the season. Stutzle ended up with 18 goals, 70 points, 192 shots on goal and 100 hits in 75 appearances this season. He regressed from 2022-23, when he managed 39 goals and 90 points in 78 appearances.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Worlds likely over
COttawa Senators
May 18, 2022
Stutzle is dealing with a knee sprain and will likely be forced to withdraw from the 2022 IIHF World Championship by the Senators, Gord Miller of TSN and NBC reports.
ANALYSIS
According to the report, Stutzle would like to remain with Germany for the international competition but that decision falls to Ottawa, which is expected to pull him from the tournament. Without the talented center, Germany could struggle to get out of the Group Stage, though it is unlikely to fall into the relegation zone. For his part, Stutzle's injury doesn't appear to be serious and is unlikely to impact his availability for the start of the 2022-23 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2021
2020
Stutzle was impressive in his rookie season, but he took his game to an entirely new level last year. The No. 3 overall selection from 2020 played in 79 of Ottawa's 82 regular-season games, posting 22 goals and 58 points. Stutzle was particularly productive with the man advantage, posting 26 power-play points. It was a massive year for a kid who turned just 20 years of age this past January. The Senators added both Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux to their roster this offseason in hopes of lengthening their lineup, moves that should serve to open up additional opportunities for Stutzle. This may be your last chance to draft the German at a reasonable price in fantasy leagues.
For a franchise desperate for glimmers of hope, the Senators had to have been pleased with Stutzle's rookie season. The German left winger scored 12 goals in 53 games as an 18-year-old and ranked fifth in the NHL's rookie scoring race with 29 points last year. Stutzle likely has a top-six spot in Ottawa's lineup secured heading into the upcoming campaign. The next step in his development will be to produce consistently in an elevated role against stiffer competition. He certainly has the tools to do so, but a limited supporting cast in Ottawa may cap his upside for at least another year.
Stuetzle was highly productive while playing for Adler Mannheim in Germany's top professional league in 2019-20, racking up seven goals and 27 assists in 41 games. That impressive performance as a teenager was enough to convince the Senators to select him with the third overall pick in this year's draft. Many believe Stuetzle would be best served by continuing to develop in his native Germany for another season before breaking into the NHL, but general manager Pierre Dorion has already hinted that he'll get every opportunity to earn a spot on Ottawa's Opening Night roster during this year's training camp. At this point it's hard to predict how Stuetzle will perform if he is in fact able to secure a full-time NHL role as a teenager in 2020-21, but he'll still be worth a late-round pick in redraft formats due to his draft pedigree alone, and he'll of course be a popular early-round selection in dynasty formats.
