Our junior national team also has bad memories of the only 20-year-old striker. A year ago at the championship, he arranged a 4: 3 win after extra time with two goals and assistance, despite the fact that the Germans started for COVID-19 only fifteen. The leader of the senior national team offensive, which will be challenged by the Slovak national team today from 7.20 pm, should now be clear. “It simply came to our notice then. I am well aware that the boys managed to get to the semifinals last year. We need to get together as a team in the first place. We don’t have as many stars as Canada or the USA, the more we have to play for each other. Today, they are no longer weak opponents. It is a great challenge for me to be at the first world championship in my career, “said Tim Stützle.

I played against Slafkovsky at the junior championship, and then he confirmed it with his performances at the Olympic tournament in Beijing, “said the German hockey player, who also remembers the duel at the junior championship more than a year ago. “We had to fight. There were only fifteen of us, we were tired. I played thirty minutes, but we succeeded, which was great. ”Stützle is by far the best in productivity in the 2000 NHL draft. Already in the rookie season he had 29 points in 53 matches, now in the Ottawa Senators he has improved to 58 points in 79 duels.

I didn’t care what others wrote and said. I’m strict with myself. I tried to play my game and thus move forward. ”He answered diplomatically when asked what not only Juraj Slafkovsky but also Simon Nemc says about high chances. “I keep my fingers crossed for both young Slovaks. I know they can be among the top five players in the next draft. Then a heavier robot is waiting for them, they have to break through, “continued Tim Stützle, who added advice for eighteen-year-olds. “You have to learn every day, be open to everything and work on yourself. You can learn something new in every team you join, “added the German striker.
