German forward Tim Stützle moved up 9 spots to 3rd overall in the January ISS Rankings. Dennis MacInnis, Director of Scouting for ISS Hockey, observed Stützle’s rise, stating:

Tim is a playmaker with that combination of skill, speed, hockey sense and determination that really separates him from his peers. He is an explosive and powerful skater that can reach top speed quickly. His vision and creativity with the puck are fun to watch. There’s so much to like to about his game – he competes hard, he’s dangerous with the puck and he keeps defenders on their toes.
