After being drafted by the Ottawa Senators with the third overall pick in 2020, Tim Stützle is living out his childhood dreams playing in the NHL. While Stützle had a great rookie year, it wasn’t necessarily the first NHL season he always imagined with no fans allowed in Canadian arenas. Local Ottawa kids tried to make up for that on Monday.
Stützle, who scored his first-ever hat trick on Saturday, was greeted with a handful of hats being thrown over his fence into his backyard. He watched from his porch.
