Stutzle finnally comments the Gally/Suzuki situation

Published April 11, 2022 at 9:40

Last night, for the first time since the game between the Habs and the Sens and especially for the first time since Brendan Gallagher openly accused him of "diving" and "faking injuries", young forward Tim Stützle returned to the game and agreed to comment on the whole thing.

The knee strike in question:

He said that he was not angry and that he does not blame Suzuki for this sequence. Suzuki apologized for the incident:

"I don't think it was intentional. Suzuki talked to me during the draw. He said he was sorry," Stützle said.

Recall that Stützle did not play in Ottawa's next two games, but he did play Sunday night against the Winnipeg Jets.

As for his response to the accusations made by Gallagher, check out what he had to say, as reported by Christian Matte (

"I respect him as a player. Everybody has their opinion. He's a veteran. I have my opinion on that. I'm not going to go any further." - Tim Stutzle

The kid didn't want to add to it and he was well advised, but if Brady Tkachuk's words are any indication, Tkachuk's response promises for the next duel.

Let's recall the comments of Gallagher's comments :

"He's a good player, we've been playing against him for two or three years now. But more than half the games we've played against him, he's laying on the ice and then he's right back on the next play, getting on the power play. He lies down on the ice, he acts like he's hurt, he sells the penalty. You know, there's kids out there watching, we're role models. If I was one of his teammates, I would tell him to be smarter. It's just not pretty. Very talented player, very good player. He needs to stop diving, it's embarrassing."
