    • 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. With the blue line still representing a weakness for the organization, the Flyers jumped at the chance to extend a reliable defenseman like Schultz to an affordable contract.
    • Flyers' Schultz Finds Twine In Loss

      News: Nick Schultz scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Islanders.
      Analysis: Nick Schultz isn't a big offensive contributor, but he has scored twice in his last three games. 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.
    • Flyers' Schultz Scores First Goal Since 2013

      News: Nick Schultz scored his first goal since the 2012-13 season Thursday, and it held up as the game-winner against Winnipeg.
      Analysis: That last tally came on April 8, 2013, so Nick Schultz was coming up on a two-year goal-scoring slump. Now he can try for the next step: scoring more than one goal in a season for the first time since 2010-11.
    • Flyers' Schultz Set To Play Tuesday

      News: Nick Schultz (upper body) appears set to play Tuesday against the Coyotes, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
      Analysis: Nick Schultz was sidelined for the Flyers' final game prior to the All-Star break due to the injury, but a full week off to recover appears to have done the trick for the blueliner. He's expected to pair up with Michael Del Zotto in the Flyers' first game of the second half.
    • Flyers' Schultz Out On Tuesday

      News: Nick Schultz (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Penguins, the Flyers' official site reports.
      Analysis: Nick Schultz, who has notched 10 assists and 31 PIM in 46 games to date, was injured Monday, along with fellow blueliner Carlo Colaiacovo, so it looks like the Flyers may need to make a recall in advance of Tuesday's contest.
    • Rare Points For Flyers' Schultz

      News: Nick Schultz picked up his first multi-point game of the season Thursday, handing out two assists in an overtime win against Washington.
      Analysis: That's well and good, but there's more or less nothing to see here from a fantasy perspective. Nick Schultz produces decent blocked-shot totals and he hits a little, but that's about it.
    • Flyers' Schultz Gets Assist In Loss

      News: Nick Schultz assisted on R.J. Umberger's second-period power-play goal in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
      Analysis: With only six points in 24 games, Nick Schultz isn't on the radar in most standard fantasy formats, but he's been one of the more trusted blue line options for the team this season for his work on the back end. He's only sat out one game this season and leads all Flyers defensemen with 53 blocked shots.
    • Flyers Ink Schultz To Contract

      News: Nick Schultz signed a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Flyers on Wednesday.
      Analysis: Nick Schultz will give the Flyers another option on the third defensive pairing, but he's unlikely to see any major fantasy relevance given the way his scoring numbers have tailed off in recent years. He compiled a mere five points in 69 games in 2013-14, finishing with a minus-13 rating while splitting time between the Oilers and Blue Jackets.
    • Jackets' Schultz Likely To Test Market

      News: The Blue Jackets haven't had any contract discussions with Nick Schultz, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
      Analysis: The unrestricted free agent played just nine games with Columbus after coming over from Edmonton at the trade deadline, managing just one assist and a minus-2 rating. After this year's 69-game total of five points (all assists) and a minus-13 rating, Nick Schultz could have difficulty securing a job with an NHL team this offseason.
    • Oilers Deal N. Schultz To Blue Jackets

      News: Nick Schultz was traded to the Blue Jackets for a fifth-round draft pick on Wednesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
      Analysis: In dealing Nick Schultz, the Oilers open up a spot for top prospect Oscar Klefbom to join the parent club. The Blue Jackets, meanwhile, get a quality depth defenseman to plug into the lineup while Ryan Murray (lower body) and Fedor Tyutin (ankle) nurse injuries. Schultz had only four points in 60 games with the Oilers, but he did supplied 64 hits and 120 blocks on the defensive end.
