Devils' Akira Schmid: Gets early hook Friday
Schmid gave up three goals on seven shots before being replaced by Vitek Vanecek midway through the first period Friday's 5-4 loss to the Sabres.
The netminder wasn't at fault for any of the tallies, but Devils coach Lindy Ruff made a quick switch in an effort to wake his team up. Schmid avoided taking the loss at least, as Vanecek allowed the game-winning goal. Schmid sports a 3-1-2 record with a .916 save percentage in eight appearances since being called back up from AHL Utica in late February.... See More ... See Less

Devils' Akira Schmid: Impresses but can't get two points
Schmid made 20 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Lightning on Thursday.
Steven Stamkos was Schmidt's kryptonite -- the sniper beat him twice from the left circle, once in the second and again in the third. Ross Colton was awarded a goal early in the game when a shot ricocheted off his knee and past an unsuspecting Schmid. The netminder has continued to impress during this call-up. He is 3-0-2 in his last five starts, including one shutout and just nine goals allowed.... See More ... See Less

Devils' Akira Schmid: Continues to impress
Schmid made 20 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Washington on Thursday.
Schmid had no chance on the first goal, which went in off Devils defenseman John Marino's leg with just 10 seconds left in the opening frame. The second goal came midway through the third period of Dylan Strome's stick in front of the net. Schmid then bricked up the net during the shootout. He is now 7-4-1 with a sparkling 1.99 GAA and .925 save percentage and has allowed just three goals on 62 shots over his last three appearances.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Akira Schmid: First goalie off Thursday

Schmid has just one win in his last seven contests, posting a 1-4-1 record, 2.43 GAA and .908 save percentage. While Vitek Vanecek will see the bulk of the workload down the stretch, Schmid should get a few opportunities with Mackenzie Blackwood (lower body) sidelined. Still, as the No. 2 option, Schmid won't offer more than middling fantasy value.... See More ... See Less

For the season, Schmid has a 6-4-1 record with a 2.00 GAA and a .926 save percentage in 12 appearances. Vitek Vanecek will likely get the nod for Sunday's game in Arizona.... See More ... See Less

Devils' Akira Schmid: Makes 12 saves in relief

Vitek Vanecek started against the Avalanche, but he was pulled after allowing five goals on 19 shots in 41:26 of ice time.

Devils' Akira Schmid: Receiving start Thursday
Schmid will guard the home goal versus the Blues on Thursday, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Schmid was called up Thursday with Mackenzie Blackwood (hand) unavailable for precautionary reasons. Vitek Vanecek played Wednesday, so Schmid will handle the second half of a back-to-back. The Blues are 6-2-2 over their last 10 games, but they're missing a couple of key players and may be a bit more favorable of a matchup than they appear to be at first glance.... See More ... See Less
