Versatile, energetic two-way forward with some pace and puck skills. Jack-of-all-trades prospect without any particular standout skill — high floor, low ceiling.

July 2022 – The Arizona Coyotes have selected Lutz in the second round of the 2022 NHL Draft, 43rd overall. Nick Richard
May 2022 – Lutz missed a lot of time this past season due to injury, but managed to add a goal and an assist to his tally in 14 games played with EHC München in the German elite league. He also made a four-game appearance at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup, scoring two goals and two assists.
A high motor and great skating foundations define Lutz’s game. He does a great job of hunting down puck-carriers and disrupting their attempts to skate the puck towards the offensive zone, while also being able to take his foot off the gas when the situation warrants it. He battles hard in front of the net, makes his stick available for deflections and rebounds, and is adept at gaining body positioning on his opponents. The main issue with Lutz is just a lack of pop in his game — his shot is OK, his passing is average, and his stickhandling is just good, but none of his puck skills stand out as remarkable tools that can be developed into above-average assets at the NHL level. I see Lutz as a versatile forward who can chip in defensively and pile up the occasional point, while manning a third line and a second power-play unit. Hadi Kalakeche
