It’s tough to find a comparison for what Tim Stutzle did in Germany’s top league this season because Leon Draisaitl was playing against teens in the WHL at the same age.

Simply put, Stutzle was a key contributor on one of the best teams in the DEL and the well-deserved rookie of the year. “He’s doing things in a men’s league that very few draft picks have done in recent history,” said one scout. “Every game he’s a go-to guy. He’s got such great hockey sense and IQ, he’s got three-zone awareness, he’s good away from the puck, he’s great with the puck. He not only complements other skill players, he actually makes them better.”
