If you thought Ottawa Senators fans were going to let Tim Stützle's first NHL hat trick go by without any recognition, you would be very wrong.

A handful of young fans from the neighborhood got together and tossed hats into Stützle's backyard after his hat trick helped Ottawa defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 on Saturday.

The Senators shared the fan-shot video on social media.

Stützle watched the over-the-fence hat toss from his back deck, which came complete with cheering and the Senators goal song, "Song 2" by Blur, blaring in the background.

Stützle, the No. 3 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, scored in the first period then added a power play goal and an empty netter in the third period on Saturday.

"It definitely felt good," Stützle said after the game. "I think I had a lot of chances through a couple games and they just really didn't go in. It's really good to get those ones."

Stützle thanked the kids for the hat tossed then was joined by teammates Brady Tkachuk and Josh Norris for a socially distanced picture.
