Observations

December 2018 – Stucker is playing in his first season with the University of Minnesota in the NCAA. He is pointless through seven games. He stands at 6-3 but needs to add some bulk to his frame. As a seventh-round pick, Stucker will likely face a long road to the NHL. The Blue Jackets’ have a deep defense core so there may not even be an opportunity for him to make the team. If he ever becomes NHL-ready, it likely would nott be sooner than 2021. The Blue Jackets’ defense is deep so there may not be an opportunity for him to make the team at that time.

December 2017 – Currently a member of the USHL champion Chicago Steel, Stucker approaches 2018 tied for sixth among league defenseman in scoring with three goals and 10 assists in 22 contests. In his first post-high school action, he’s proven more than willing to shoot the puck, standing second in Steel rearguard SOG with 44. A former Colorado College commit, he recently swtiched plans and will attend the University of Minnesota. Stucker starred with highly-regarded St. Thomas Academy of Mendota Heights which produced New York Islander Anders Lee, and faced top USHS competition in the Minnesota Metro East Conference. He registered 51 points (40 assists) in 31 games during his senior prep campaign, and earned praise as a well-rounded defender, excelling in all zones and facets of the game. Stucker ranked 88th among 247 North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s final 2016-17 rankings. Having turned 19-years-old just a few months ago, Stucker is still growing but already quite tall. He could add bulk to help contend with larger opponents as he transitions to more advanced NCAA competition. Kevin Wickersham
