The Ducks signed Jeff Schultz to a one-year, two-way contract.
Schultz, 30, spent last season in the AHL, aside from his one appearance with the Kings. He had 18 points (3G / 15A) in 66 games with the Ontario Reign. Schultz is not known for his offensive output, so don’t expect him to have a fantasy impact if he is able to make it to the NHL next year.
Schultz will draw into the lineup for Robyn Regehr (undisclosed) in game 2.
Schultz last NHL game was on March 31st, 2013. He spent the entire season with Manchester (AHL), where he had two goals and 11 assists (13 points) in 67 games. Schultz has one assist in 29 career playoff games. He will be paired with Slava Voynov.
The Kings have recalled Jeff Schultz from Manchester (AHL).
Schultz spent the last eight years in the Washington Capitals organization. He totaled 399 NHL games recording 11 goals and 75 points. In 23 games with the Manchester Monarchs he has a goal and an assist. There is no word on which Kings defenseman is dealing with an injury, or if Schultz will dress tonight.
