Jakob Oettinger (born December 18, 1998) is an American professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL). He played for Boston University during his collegiate career. After being part of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program, he was widely considered as a top prospect for 2017 NHL Entry Draft.[1] The Dallas Stars selected Oettinger in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.[2]

Playing career

After spending his freshman year at Lakeville North High School, Oettinger committed to the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (USNTDP) Juniors for the 2014–15 season.[3]

Oettinger played two seasons with the USNTDP Juniors while committing to Boston University. He was drafted in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars.[4]

Collegiate

During his freshman season at Boston University, Oettinger posted a 2.11 goals-against average and .927 save-percentage.[5] During that season, Oettinger was named Hockey East Goaltender of the Month for the month of October, was a two-time Hockey East Rookie of the Week, a two-time Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week and was named Hockey East Top Performer four times.[6] Thus, he was named to the Hockey East All-Rookie Team and Hockey East Second Team All-Star at the end of the year.[6][5] During his second season at Boston University, Oettinger was named to the Hockey East All-Tournament Team of the 2018 Hockey East Men's Ice Hockey Tournament and earned the William Flynn Tournament Most Valuable Player award after he helped Boston win their ninth Hockey East Tournament title.[7] Prior to the 2018–19 season, Oettinger was named an assistant captain for the Terriers, along with Chad Krys.[8]

Professional

On March 25, 2019, Oettinger signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars, and was assigned to their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars, on an amateur tryout contract.[9] Upon joining the Texas Stars, Oettinger recorded a .897 save percentage and a 3.34 goals-against average in his first eight games.[10] On March 3, 2020, he earned his first NHL call up as Ben Bishop dealt with a lower-body injury.
