  • Penguins' Justin Schultz: Re-signs for another three years

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Schultz agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Penguins worth an annual average value of $5.5 million.

    Schultz was always Pittsburgh's top priority and after putting up career highs in goals (12), assists (39) and power-play points (20) there was little doubt he was going to get a significant pay bump. With Kris Letang (neck) sidelined, Pittsburgh relied heavily on the 26-year-old to pick up the scoring slack -- including 13 points in the postseason, seven of which came with the man advantage. While repeating his 51-point 2016-17 campaign might be a stretch, the blueliner is certainly capable of reaching the 40-point mark this upcoming season.

    Penguins' Justin Schultz: Given qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/17) Schultz was tendered a qualifying offer by the Penguins on Monday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Schultz's qualifying offer is almost certainly temporary, as the two sides have already begun preliminary talks on a long-term deal. Many people in Edmonton would consider the second-round draft pick a bust, but he has thrived in the Burgh, including reaching career highs in goals (12), assists (39) and shots on goal (154) this past season. In the absence of Kris Letang (neck), the 26-year-old Schultz was relied on heavily on the power play and in the offensive zone -- roles he appears to relish.

    Penguins' Justin Schultz: Suffered broken rib during Ottawa series

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/15/17) Schultz told reporters that the injury that kept him out of four postseason contests was a broken rib, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Perhaps more important than the injury details, Schultz -- who will be a restricted free agent -- also stated that he wants to remain with Pittsburgh, per Wes Crosby of NHL.com. If he is re-signed by the Penguins, the offensive-minded defenseman will likely continue seeing steady time on the power play, where he racked up 20 points this past season. Career highs in goals (12), assists (39) and shots on goal (154) are indicative how much better of a fit the 26-year-old is in Pittsburgh than he was in Edmonton.

    Penguins' Justin Schultz: Credited with game-winner Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/9/17) Schultz was credited with the winning goal in Thursday's Game 5 blowout over the Predators.

    Schultz opened the scoring on the power play early on and the Penguins never looked back. The former Oiler has notched four goals this postseason and been a key contributor with the man advantage. He logs steady minutes and has been a decent offensive presence -- something the Penguins needed with the absence of fellow rearguard Kris Letang (neck). The Penguins are one win away from another Stanley Cup and Schultz's solid work at both ends of the ice has helped tremendously.

    Penguins' Justin Schultz: Battled rib injury in most recent playoff game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/27/17) Schultz played through broken ribs during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    You wouldn't know that Schultz was dealing with any kind of issue simply by looking at the box score, as the skilled rearguard managed a power-play goal, an assist, three hits and a plus-2 rating over 24:16 of ice time on the way to a series clincher over the Senators. Expect Schultz to continue playing through the malady, knowing that he'll have until Monday to rest before the Penguins play host to the Predators for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
