Observations

March 2019 – Sturtz has had a rough year plagued by injuries. What was supposed to be a major development year for the former Penn State standout has turned into a setback. Sturtz will look to get back on track next year in his attempt to make the NHL. Jordan Deshane

August 2018 – The Senators dipped their toes into the NCAA free agent pool by signing Penn State University star Andrew Sturtz.  During his three years in Happy Valley, PA, Sturtz racked up 104 points in 111 contests and departs campus as the all-time leading goal scorer in school history. As a freshman he led the team in goals with 18 and finished fifth in the nation among all first year players. Year number two saw him once again set a team high in goals, this time with 22 and finished third on the Nittany Lions in scoring with 37 points.  He capped off his collegiate career with a 2017-18 campaign that saw him lead the team in scoring with 40 points, outscoring his next closest teammate by nine, was tops in assists with 26 and second on the team in goals with 14. He was the team’s nominee for the Hobey Baker award but failed to make the shortlist of final nominees. Sturtz joined the Belleville Senators once he signed his deal and made an instant impact but registering a goal and three points in his first six professional games. One thing about Sturtz is that he’s a winner, having won back-to-back league championships in Junior A with the Carleton Place Canadians and then won the B1G conference championship in the 2016-17 season. While short in stature standing at just 5-08, Sturtz has a bit of bulk to him as he tips the scales at 185 pounds. He’s not one to to shy away from getting the puck on net as evidenced by his average of 3.14, 3.95 and 3.78 shots per game during his three years in college, the latter two marks placed him 13th and 17th in the NCAA. He’ll be 24 by the time the season starts so the upside is limited but he’s effectively a ready-made prospect capbale of playing either wing or centre. Sturza will likely serve as organizational depth and could receive some call ups to fill in as a bottom-six winger. Brad Phillips
