  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Hits IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz (lower leg) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site. Considering he will remain sidelined for at least the next four months, Schultz's placement on injured reserve shouldn't come as much of shock to the system. Based on the timetable, Schultz will likely be looking at a late-season return with the potential to contribute in the postseason as well.

  • Schultz had surgery to repair a fracture in his lower leg and is expected to miss at least four months, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports. Well, this is a pretty big blow to the Penguins' defense, and also their power play. The 28-year-old had four assists in four games to start the year, and he had double-digit points with the extra man in each of his two previous seasons with Pittsburgh. Chad Ruhwedel has been a healthy scratch every game, but that's probably about to change.

  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Absent at practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Schultz (ankle) missed practice Monday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports. Schultz had to be helped off the ice Saturday after suffering this injury, and it looks like the issue is lingering. The Penguins play Tuesday at home against the Canucks before heading on a Canadian road trip. It seems unlikely that he will be able to get healthy before Pittsburgh's next contest, which could mean more minutes for Juuso Riikola and Chad Ruhwedel.

  • Schultz had to be helped off the ice with what looked like a left ankle injury in the first period of Saturday's game in Montreal, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Schultz went into the boards awkwardly after getting hit by Tomas Plekanec. His chances of returning to this contest look slim, though it's too early to predict a timetable for this injury given the lack of details at this time.

  • Schultz recorded two helpers in Thursday's 4-2 win over Vegas. Schultz recorded just 27 points last season after breaking out with 51 in 2016-17, but he's off to an encouraging start with four helpers through three games. Between Schultz's puck-moving ability and Pittsburgh's talented group up front, there's fantasy value to be found here if Schultz can stay aggressive.
