  • Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Packing bags for Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Schmidt has been selected by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Add the Caps to the list of teams that tried to make a deal to save the player that they ended up losing. Mobile, puck-moving defensemen are in high demand around the NHL these days, and that's exactly the skill set Schmidt brings to the table. He figures to be worth a fantasy selection in deeper pools this coming season, as Schmidt should get all the ice time he can handle for the expansion club.

    Capitals' Nate Schmidt: Can be picked by Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/17/17) Schmidt is not being protected from the expansion draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    After recording 17 points in 60 games at a bottom-four, blue-line position, many around Washington expected Schmidt to be protected, especially since Karl Alzner and Kevin Shattenkirk are headed to free agency. Besides Philip Grubauer, he's the most headlined Washingtonoption for Vegas to potentially pick up. He could be protected by a deal between the Caps and the Golden Knights, but this would be difficult since Washington has given up so many draft picks already in previous trades. If Schmidt is picked up, there will be plenty of fresh faces on the Caps' blue line come fall.

    Capitals' Nate Schmidt: Expected to have top-four role in 2017-18

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/30/17) Schmidt is expected to be a top-four defenseman with the Capitals in 2017-18, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    With Karl Alzner and Kevin Shattenkirk set to become unrestricted free agents, the path is clear for Schmidt to get a more prominent role on the Caps' blue line, where he spent much of the season on the third pairing with Brooks Orpik before being relegated to a depth role following the acquisition of the aforementioned Shattenkirk at the trade deadline. A wildcard in this plan is the potential that the 25-year-old Minnesotan could be taken by the Vegas Golden Knights in the upcoming expansion draft. With an impressive playoff performance in his back pocket, the undrafted defender's prospects are on the rise, which should boost his fantasy value for 2017-18.

    Capitals' Nate Schmidt: Pots goal Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Schmidt scored a goal and had a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Oddly enough, Schmidt has goals in back-to-back contests, but they came nine games apart due to the Minnesotan's relegation to the press box following the arrival of Kevin Shattenkirk at the trade deadline. The 25-year-old could see more consistent ice time as long as John Carlson (lower body) is out of the lineup, but his fantasy value remains somewhat limited even with his recent scoring touch. Seek out safer fantasy options for the remainder of the campaign.

    Capitals' Nate Schmidt: Watches from press box again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/17) Schmidt was a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game Monday against Dallas.

    Schmidt has only played once since Kevin Shattenkirk was acquired on Feb. 27, and it appears the undrafted free-agent acquisition is clearly the odd-man out. Additionally, with just 14 points through 54 games for the season, there isn't any reason to make Schmidt a fantasy priority at this point.
