As expected, the top German ice hockey talent Tim Stützle was pulled in third place by the Ottawa Senators in the NHL draft, following star player Leon Draisaitl. The 18-year-old striker was selected just as early in the talent selection of the North American professional league on Wednesday night as MVP Draisaitl. That was also picked third by the Edmonton Oilers in 2014.

After Draisaitl and Moritz Seider, who was voted sixth by the Detroit Red Wings last year, the native of Viersen is the third German top 10 draft pick.

Lukas Reichel from Berlin was also selected in the first round, but earlier than expected. The 18-year-old striker was signed 17th by his favorite NHL team, the Chicago Blackhawks.
