  • Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Watches former team hoist cup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/8/18) Schmidt potted his third goal of the postseason in Thursday's season-ending, 4-3 loss to the Capitals.

    Schmidt scored the first of his team's three second-period tallies, but Vegas was otherwise blanked in this Game 5 and ultimately came up one goal short. As a result, his new team's inaugural season came to a close at the hands of his former team in the Stanley Cup Finals. Schmidt's 36 regular-season points were more than double his best output with Washington, so the 26-year-old blueliner's future looks bright despite this disappointment.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Seeing increased ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/18) Schmidt is averaging just under 25 minutes of ice time per game, including 2:40 on the power play, during his team's historic playoff run.

    The Golden Knights are just one game away from making a Stanley Cup appearance in their first ever NHL season, and Schmidt is a huge reason why. His 24:56 of ice time during the playoffs is up from his 22:14 average during the regular season, and he's seeing nearly a full minute more per game during the man advantage. The 26-year-old blueliner has a pair of goals and six points during the playoffs and he should maintain his spot on the top defensive pair from here on out.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Goal holds up after review

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) Schmidt registered a second-period goal and an assist Sunday in a series win over the Sharks.

    Schmidt's wrist shot sailed just beneath the crossbar, and both teams continued to play all the way into the Golden Knights' zone before the officials took a closer look and deemed it a good goal to the dismay of the home crowd. The 26-year-old defenseman cracked the scoresheet in just two of six games against the Sharks, but he'll have a chance to build off his Game 6 success with Vegas taking care of its second-ever playoff opponent Sunday.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Two helpers in Sunday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/18) Schmidt picked up two assists, one on the power play, while adding two shots, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Flames.

    The former Capital now has five goals and 34 points in 68 games on the season with a plus-20 rating, supplying steady production as part of a deep Golden Knights' blue line. Schmidt still has a chance at his first career 40-point season if he can stay hot down the stretch.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: To join team Friday in Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/18) Schmidt (undisclosed) will join his teammates in Buffalo on Friday.

    Schmidt can safely be ruled out against the Red Wings on Thursday, but his presence in Buffalo suggests he could retake the ice for Saturday's matchup. The 26-year-old blueliner has seen a significant role increase in what's been a breakout season with Vegas this season, posting 30 points (five goals, 25 assists) and a plus-21 rating over 63 games. He should retake his spot among the lines and the power play when healthy enough to give it a go.
