This is what the TSN network said on Tuesday, the day after the injury of the player who plays for Germany in the framework of the 2022 World Hockey Championship.
Against France, Stützle was forced out of the game in the first half after being checked by defender Thomas Thiry. The Ottawa Senators color holder in the National Hockey League (NHL) appeared to feel pain in his left leg on the sequence.
In three games at the international event held in Finland, the third overall pick of the 2020 draft of the Bettman circuit collected three assists.
Germany, which has two wins and one loss so far, will return to action on Thursday against Denmark.
Stützle had an excellent second career NHL season in 2021-22. He amassed 22 goals and 36 assists for 58 points in 79 games in a “Sens” uniform.
