    Flyers' Nick Schultz: Collects assist in win

    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.

    Flyers' Nick Schultz: Set to return to action Friday

    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.

    Flyers' Nick Schultz: Out Tuesday

    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.

    Flyers' Nick Schultz: Practices Monday

    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.

    Flyers' Nick Schultz: Exits Saturday's game with upper-body injury

    Schultz has been ruled out of the remainder of Saturday's tilt against the Rangers with an upper-body injury. Schultz took a big hit from New York's Dylan McIlrath in the first period of Saturday's contest against the Rangers, and headed to the Flyers' locker room shortly thereafter as a result. The exact nature of the ailment remains unclear, but the Flyers' should provide an update on Schultz' status once they have an opportunity to evaluate him further.

  • Flyers Sign Schultz To Two-Year Extension

    News: The Flyers have signed Nick Schultz to a two-year, $4.5 million contract extension Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
    Analysis: Nick Schultz's offensive numbers (13 points in 55 games) don't jump off the page, but the Flyers brass has been very impressed with his work in front of the team's goalies this season.

The 32-year-old does average 19:03 of ice time, but he's only got 12 points on the season, making him valuable in only the deepest of leagues. With a plus-7 rating and solid defensive play, Schultz is way more valuable to the Flyers than he is to fantasy owners.
