Ottawa Senators forward Tim Stutzle will not be available for Thursday's game against the Nashville Predators due to a lower-body injury.

Stutzle, 20, appeared to injure his knee after colliding with Montreal Canadiens forward Nick Suzuki during Ottawa's 6-3 victory over the Canadiens on Tuesday.

The native of Viersen, Germany remained in the game but was considered a game-time decision at practice on Thursday.

Stutzle has registered 15 goals and 43 points in 68 games this season.

The 6-foot forward has 27 goals and 72 points in 121 career games, all with the Senators.
