Top Nate Schmidt News

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Collects first helper

    Schmidt logged an assist and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.

    Schmidt's helper was his first of the season, and his first point in the last eight games. The 31-year-old defenseman hasn't been able to generate much offense -- Josh Morrissey and Neal Pionk have been the Jets' most productive blueliners. Schmidt is at three points, 21 shots on net, a plus-2 rating, 29 blocked shots and 13 hits through 19 appearances.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: No assists this season

    Schmidt has yet to pick up an assist in 2022-23.

    Schmidt has two goals in 18 games and has not had a point in his last seven contests. The defenseman had four goals and 28 helpers in 2021-22, second-best in his career, behind the 36-point effort in 2017-18 with Vegas.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Gets on scoresheet with goal

    Schmidt scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Kings.

    Schmidt's go-ahead goal at 18:55 of the second period was his first point of the season. It's been a slow start for the 31-year-old defenseman, as he's added seven shots on net, nine blocked shots, four hits and a plus-1 rating in seven contests. With Josh Morrissey and Neal Pionk seeing most of the premium usage among Jets defensemen, Schmidt is unlikely to provide significant offense until his role improves.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Finishes with 30-plus points

    Schmidt generated 32 points in 77 games this season, including 11 power-play points.

    After managing just 15 points with Vancouver last year, Schmidt was back over the 30-point threshold for the fourth time in his last five seasons. While the 30-year-old Minnesota native won't ever be an elite offensive contributor, he brings solid value in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Back at it

    Schmidt (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Wednesday versus the Flyers, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Schmidt should return to a top-four role and a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit following his one-game absence. The 30-year-old defender has collected four goals and 32 points through 74 contests this campaign.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: No-go Sunday

    Schmidt (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against the Avalanche, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Schmidt's a little banged up, per coach Dave Lowry. Logan Stanley will enter the lineup and is expected to skate in Schmidt's usual spot alongside Neal Pionk. Schmidt's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Flyers.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Game-time call

    Schmidt (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with Colorado, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Schmidt's status against the Avalanche likely won't be determined until Winnipeg takes the ice for pregame warmups. If Schmidt's unable to go, look for Logan Stanley to draw into the lineup against Colorado.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Picks up assist in return

    Schmidt recorded an assist in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.

    Returning to action after a three-game stint in the COVID-19 protocols, the veteran blueliner helped set up Mark Scheifele for Winnipeg's lone goal. Schmidt has four goals and 32 points through 67 games this season, leaving him four points short of tying his career high.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Schmidt returned to practice Monday after exiting the league's COVID-19 protocols, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Schmidt needs just five more points to match the career-high mark (36) he set back in 2017-18 while with the Golden Knights.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: In COVID-19 protocols

    Schmidt has been placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    At this point, barring a false positive, Schmidt should be expected to miss at least the team's upcoming back-to-back versus Buffalo and Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday in addition to Saturday's clash with the Kings. The defenseman is currently stuck in a 13-game goal drought, though that shouldn't be completely surprising considering he has never reached the 10-goal threshold in his career. In his stead, Logan Stanley (undisclosed) could be pressed into service Wednesday if deemed fit enough.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Assists in consecutive contests

    Schmidt logged an assist and blocked two shots in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Blackhawks.

    Schmidt helped out on Nikolaj Ehlers' opening tally Sunday. This was Schmidt's second straight game with an assist, and he's picked up five points in 10 outings in March. The 30-year-old rearguard has 31 points, 96 shots on net, 87 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in 62 appearances. He was shuffled down to the third pairing Sunday, but he'll likely continue to see top-four minutes regardless of his defense partner.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Manages helper in loss

    Schmidt recorded an assist in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.

    Schmidt reached 30 points with the helper, and now he's had at least that many in four of the past five seasons. The Jets have the heady defenseman under contract through the 2024-25 campaign; he's currently accounting for 7.3 percent of the team's salary cap, but it likely will be at least another year before Winnipeg can benefit from his extensive playoff experience.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Registers helper Monday

    Schmidt recorded an assist, three shots on goal and two blocked shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Schmidt set up Mark Scheifele for a third-period tally. This gave Schmidt two goals and three assists in his last eight contests, though Neal Pionk's return to the lineup Wednesday versus the Wild could eat into the former's playing time. Schmidt has racked up 23 points, 79 shots on net, 63 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 45 games in a top-four role this season. He could push for his career high of 36 points set in the 2017-18 season with the Golden Knights.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Fills empty cage

    Schmidt scored an empty-net goal on two shots and added two blocked shots in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Wild.

    Schmidt provided some insurance at 18:49 of the third period to seal the win. This was his second goal in three games, though it was just his third lamp-lighter of the season. The 30-year-old defenseman is up to 21 points, 74 shots on net, 57 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in 42 appearances. With the Jets thin on the blue line, Schmidt will likely eat more minutes in the near term until Neal Pionk (COVID-19 protocols) or Logan Stanley (lower body) can return.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Penalized in loss

    Schmidt added two PIM and two hits in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Penguins on Sunday.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Returns to practice Tuesday

    Schmidt (illness) was back at practice Tuesday after dealing with a non-COVID illness, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    While Schmidt hasn't scored a goal in his last 16 contests, he has still racked up seven helpers, including four with the man advantage, over that stretch. Schmidt's return to action ahead of Monday's clash with Minnesota will likely see Nathan Beaulieu dropped from the lineup.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Not playing Sunday

    Schmidt (illness) is not on the ice for pregame warmups and will not play Sunday against St. Louis, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    The blueliner departed Saturday's practice because he wasn't feeling well, and though it's unclear if it's related to COVID-19 or not, it's enough to keep him out of game action. Schmidt, who's put up 17 points in 29 games this season, will set his sights on returning for the team's next scheduled game Wednesday in Dallas.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Under the weather

    Schmidt was sent home from Saturday's practice because he was feeling ill, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    At this point it isn't clear if Schmidt is dealing with COVID-19 or some other unrelated illness, but his status for Sunday's game versus St. Louis is nonetheless now up in the air. If Schmidt's unable to go, Nathan Beaulieu will likely draw into the lineup against the Blues.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Contributes power-play assist

    Schmidt recorded a power-play assist and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Schmidt had the secondary assist on Josh Morrissey's third-period equalizer. With five helpers in his last six games, Schmidt has been steady on offense lately. The American defenseman is up to 17 points (nine on the power play), 45 shots on net, 41 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 29 contests as he enjoys a solid bounce-back campaign.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Grabs power-play apple

    Schmidt recorded a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Schmidt set up a goal by Blake Wheeler (knee) in the first period. The 30-year-old Schmidt has played over 22 minutes in each of the last three contests with Neal Pionk (concussion) out of action. The extra time has served Schmidt well, as he's racked up four assists in his last four games. For the year, the Minnesota native has 16 points, 42 shots on net, 39 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating. He's already surpassed his scoring output from 54 games last season.
