Schmaltz was recalled from AHL Chicago on Friday. Peter Harrold, Ivan Barbashev, and Jordan Binnington will join Schmaltz in the ascension to the parent club for what appears to be a "Black Aces" scenario. Since the minor-league Wolves team missed the playoffs, the aforementioned skaters possessing NHL contracts earn the right to be with parent club during the playoffs. It's unlikely that any of them will actually make a postseason appearance, but it's worth noting that Schmaltz was the one with the highest points output of the newly recalled skaters, with the blueliner notching six goals and 30 assists.
Schmaltz was sent down to Chicago of the American Hockey League on Saturday. Schmaltz was up for a brief stay and never got into a game. His demotion clears a roster spot for Alex Pietrangelo (knee), who was activated off injured reserve Saturday.
Schmaltz was recalled from AHL Chicago on Sunday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. With Alexander Steen (upper body) expected to miss at least a month of action, Schmaltz and Dimitrij Jaskin were both called up from AHL Chicago. Schmaltz doesn't figure to see much ice time, if any, as he's yet to play in the NHL since being selected with the 25th overall pick in the 2012 entry draft. Jaskin has 123 NHL appearances to his name, including 49 this season.
