Schultz has been a healthy scratch for the last seven games, but will draw into the lineup for his 14th game of the season tonight. Schultz will surprisingly replace Shayne Gostisbehere in the lineup vs. the Canadiens and comes in with just four assists on the year.
Schultz will be back in the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.
Schultz served as a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will re-enter the lineup tonight with Andrew MacDonald coming out because of a lower-body injury. Schultz, who will likely skate with Shayne Gostisbehere, has three assists in seven games this season.
The Flyers have signed Nick Schultz to a two-year extension worth $4.5 million.
Schultz has little to offer in terms of fantasy value, but the Flyers clearly like what he has done for them this season, by inking the 32-year-old to a two-year contract extension. He has 13 points (2G / 11A) and a plus-6 rating while averaging 19:08 TOI in 55 games this season.
The Flyers signed Nick Schultz to a one-year deal worth $1.25 million.
Schultz had five assists and a minus-13 rating in 69 games with the Blue Jackets and Oilers last season. Schultz will likely start the season as the Flyers seventh defenseman and carries no fantasy value.
The Oilers have traded Nick Schultz to the Blue Jackets for a fifth-round pick.
Schultz, 31, is a defensive defenseman who addresses the need for a D-man following the injuries to Ryan Murray and Fedor Tyutin on the Blue Jackets bllueline. Schultz averaged 16:58 TOI while posting no goals and four assists with a minus-11 rating in 60 games with the Oilers.
