  • Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Sticks it to former team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Schmidt tallied two goals, three points, a plus-1 rating and four shots on goal in a 5-3 victory against the Capitals on Tuesday.

    He's only played nine games, but, coming into the night, Schmidt had posted just one assist this season. Clearly, this is the offensive outburst owners wanted to see. Keep in mind, though, that facing his former team, which didn't protect him in the expansion draft, likely motivated Schmidt on Tuesday night. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a special season now that he's healthy, but owners should still proceed with caution until Schmidt records a nice night against another foe.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Held in check offensively in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Schmidt (suspension) made his season debut against the Oilers on Sunday, recording 19:38 of ice time but failing to mark the scoresheet in a 6-3 road win.

    It looks like it's going to take some time for Schmidt to fully shake off the rust, even though he did practice with a Vienna-based team during his suspension. The American averaged 22:14 in Vegas' magical inaugural season, and it's probably only a matter of time before he's on the same page as Shea Theodore on the second defensive pair. The Golden Knights only have nine wins in 21 games this season, but the return of Schmidt -- who is featured in both special-teams situations -- could lead to a strong finish to the calendar year for the young club.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Will return to lineup Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Schmidt will return from his 20-game suspension Sunday versus the Oilers, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

    Schmidt served his 20-game ban for violating the league's Performance Enhancing Substances policy in Austria, and he has joined the Golden Knights during their road trip. The struggling team is hoping Schmidt can provide a spark, as they sit at seventh in the Pacific Division and rank 25th in the league with a 15.9 power-play percentage. Schmidt had 11 points with the man advantage last year and will get an immediate crack against a struggling Oilers' penalty kill (75 percent).

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Fully serves suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/18) Schmidt will be eligible to return from his 20-game suspension Sunday night against the Oilers.

    Schmidt was assessed a 20-game ban in early September for violating the NHL's Performance Enhancing Substances policy. He was denied upon appealing the suspension, so the 27-year-old rearguard headed to Vienna, where he was still able to practice. Jesse Granger of The Athletic wrote about how much fun Schmidt had overseas -- spoiler alert: it includes tales of the defenseman experiencing an Austrian circus and consuming a bacon-wrapped deer heart -- but now he'll shift his attention back to the Golden Knights. Schmidt led all Vegas blueliners with 36 points (five goals, 31 assists) in 76 regular-season games last season and helped the team advance to the Stanley Cup Finals against his former Capitals team. However, the Golden Knights have picked up only 17 points for a seventh-place standing in the Pacific Division this season.

    Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Rejoins team at practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/7/18) Schmidt (suspension) -- who had been practicing overseas in Vienna -- was in attendance at Wednesday's practice session.

    Schmidt still has five contests to serve on his 20-game suspension for taking a banned substance. With Deryk Engelland (personal) away from the team, the Golden Knights could benefit from the return of the 27-year-old Schmidt. Once eligible to play, the Minnesota native figures to immediately slot into the lineup.
