Schultz could be dealt by the Flyers before Monday's trade deadline, according to Sam Carchidi of the Inquirer. With a minus-1 rating and and seven points in 59 games this season, it's hard to imagine a trade impacting his fantasy value. He's off his pace of 15 points from last season, and he's reach the 20-point threshold only once in his career.
Schultz collected a helper and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal. Schultz has never been a prolific points producer on defense, and he's on pace for just 10 points this season. Strangely, he's fared better on the road this season, collecting his four of his five helpers when he's team travels. He faces his former team, the Wild, Thursday in Minnesota, so if you're in desperate need of a long shot on defense, he could warrant a start.
Schultz (upper body) will return to action Friday against the Devils, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Schultz exited Saturday's game against the Rangers in the first period with an upper-body injury, and ultimately was unable to return to the contest. He returned to practice Monday, but didn't feel well enough to suit up for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa. The 33-year-old blueliner practiced again Thursday, and is now healthy enough to draw back into Philadelphia's lineup for Friday's tilt against the Devils. Schultz, who has tallied a single assist in 24 games this season, is expected to skate alongside Yevgeni Medvedev on the Flyers' second pairing in Friday's game.
Schultz (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Senators, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Schultz exited Saturday's game against the Rangers in the first period after being leveled by New York's Dylan McIlrath, and was ultimately unable to return to the contest. The 33-year-old blueliner took part in Tuesday's morning skate, but still isn't well enough to suit up for Tuesday evening's tilt against Ottawa. He'll hope to return to action Friday against the Devils.
Schultz (upper body) took part in practice Monday, and indicated afterwards that he felt fine, but will see how he feels Tuesday. Schultz was injured in Saturday's game against the Rangers after taking a hard check early on in the contest. While it seems more likely than not that he'll be available Tuesday, Brandon Manning would draw into the lineup in his place, but the pairings would remain the same if Schultz plays.
