  • Schultz signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Pens on Wednesday. The right-handed blueliner, who collected one goal and eight points in 18 games with the Pens following a trade with Edmonton, could hold some sneaky fantasy value. Coach Mike Sullivan didn't show much confidence in Schultz -- he skated 15 minutes or more only four times in the playoffs -- but the defender currently projects to skate as part of a third pairing with Derrick Pouliot. Given the nature of injuries striking over the course of an 82-game slate, Schultz could see an expanded role at some point.

  • Justin Schultz: Not offered deal by Pittsburgh
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz will become a free agent after the Penguins opted not to submit a qualifying offer for him Monday. Schultz was acquired via trade by Pittsburgh last season, but was either a healthy scratch or saw limited minutes for much of the Stanley Cup run. The former Wisconsin Badger will likely get picked up but given the Penguins salary cap limitations and depth along the blue line, the 25-year-old won't be part of the team's Stanley Cup defense.

  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Could return for Game 2
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz may be reinserted into the lineup Monday against Tampa Bay after being a healthy scratch for Game 1, Josh Yohe of DK on Pittsburgh Sports reports. Schultz was solid defensively in his three previous playoff contests this year and will likely replace the struggling Olli Maatta. In those postseason outings, the defenseman saw an average of 1:33 in power-play ice time, but should still be considered a low-end fantasy option as he has failed to tally a point in his last five appearances.

  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Not in lineup Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz wil sit out Wednesday's game following the return of Olli Maatta, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The defenseman has played in three playoff games but has yet to pick up a point. Schultz scored one goal and eight points in 18 regular-season games with Pittsburgh.

  • Schultz picked up a pair of assists -- including one on the power play -- Saturday against the Isles. He saw time on the team's No. 1 power-play unit, taking a slap shot off a Sidney Crosby feed which Patric Hornqvist deflected for the goal. Half of Schultz's six points with Pittsburgh have come in the last two games as the blueliner continues to find chemistry with his new squad.
