Ottawa Senators forward Tim Stützle was placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Saturday, Jan. 16., the team announced before taking on the Winnipeg Jets.

Stützle, who was back on the ice with his teammates on Friday for the first time since Monday, has missed the past two games with a “nagging” injury.

The German admitted Friday that he sustained the undisclosed injury during the recent World Junior tournament in Edmonton. 

The 19-year-old winger scored his first NHL goal last week against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ottawa fell 6-3 to the Jets Saturday night.

In a related move, Ottawa has recalled forward Micheal Haley from the team's taxi squad.
