by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt posted a power-play helper and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Supplies power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt posted a power-play assist and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Oilers.

Schmidt reached the 30-point mark for the third straight year, doing so in just 53 outings in 2019-20. The 28-year-old has added 84 blocked shots and 102 shots on net this season. He figures to remain a key part of the Vegas blue line, with enough offense to help most fantasy owners.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Gathers assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt recorded an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

Through nine games in February, Schmidt has two goals and five helpers. He's up to 29 points, 99 shots, 78 blocks and a plsu-4 rating in 50 contests overall. The arrival of Alec Martinez via trade from the Kings could eat into Schmidt's role on the ice, but the latter should still be a solid option for fantasy owners.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Stays warm with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt posted an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Islanders.

Schmidt has two goals and four assists in his last five outings. The defenseman has added nine blocks and 12 shots on goal in that span. For the season, the 28-year-old has 28 points, 94 shots and 75 blocks through 48 outings. He's on pace for a career year offensively.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Finds twine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Thursday's 6-5 overtime win over the Blues.

Schmidt is simmering with two goals and three assists over his last four games. The 28-year-old defenseman is up to 27 points, 92 shots on net and 72 blocked shots in 47 contests this season. While he's playing well, he's a solid mid-tier option in DFS.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Collects pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt recorded two assists, two shots on goal and a pair of blocked shots in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Schmidt had the secondary helper on Jon Merrill's first-period tally and the third-period equalizer by Cody Eakin. It's the third multi-point effort in six games for the 28-year-old blueliner. He's at 26 points, 89 shots, 69 blocks and a plus-3 rating through 45 contests.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Tallies plus-3 rating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt scored a goal and posted a plus-3 rating with two shots on net in a 4-3 victory over the Hurricanes on Friday.

This was Schmidt's first goal since he scored a pair Dec. 27. If he gets hot, Schmidt could still reach his career high of nine goals, which he tallied last season. Schmidt could set a new high-water mark in points, too, but the key will be staying healthy. Schmidt has only played more than 72 games once in his career, and he's already missed 12 contests this season. He has five goals and 22 points with a plus-2 rating and 78 shots in 41 games this season.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Churns out assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.

Schmidt provided the secondary helper on Reilly Smith's third-period tally. The 28-year-old blueliner has two goals and three helpers in his last seven games, bringing him to 18 points in 34 contests overall. He's added 67 shots and 69 blocks, which makes him a solid depth option in fantasy.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Deuces wild Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt scored a pair of goals in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Ducks.

Schmidt's tallies came in the final two minutes of the third period, ultimately serving as nothing more than window dressing. The blueliner added two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating. The 28-year-old doubled his goal total to four, and he now has 16 points through 29 games this year.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Supplies helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt had an assist, four shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Schmidt still put together a good stat line despite the overall disappointing result for his team. The 28-year-old blueliner has 14 points, 56 shots and 52 blocked shots in 28 appearances this season. A solid pace on offense could see Schmidt top the 30-point mark for the third straight campaign.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Unafraid to jump into play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt blocked seven shots Friday in a 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

Believe it or not, the Stars had one of their own defensemen (Esa Lindell) match Schmidt's gaudy blocked-shots total. Schmidt snapped a two-game point streak, but he presumably provided a nice return for DFS players involved in contests that issue points for redirected shots.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Assists everywhere in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt delivered four assists, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Flames.

Schmidt had helpers on the first three Vegas goals in the game, and then added another on the team's last tally. Only one of the four assists was a primary helper. The 28-year-old more than doubled his point production with the big outing -- he now has seven points, 23 shots on goal and 22 blocked shots through 10 appearances.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Tallies second goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Breaks goose egg for goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt scored a goal on two shots, blocked four shots and added a pair of hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

Schmidt did a little bit of everything in the contest, with his goal giving the Golden Knights a 3-1 lead just 8:30 into the first period. He has a point in each of his two games since returning from a lower-body injury. The 28-year-old is a two-time 30-point earner, and his recent production suggests he has a good chance to reach that mark again if he stays healthy.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Churns out assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt (lower body) produced an assist and five shots on goal in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canadiens.

Schmidt had the primary helper on fellow returnee Alex Tuch's goal in the first period. It was just the second game of the year for the defender, who was injured in the season opener. Schmidt has reached the 30-point threshold in each of the last two seasons, but he'll have an uphill battle after losing nearly a month of action.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt (lower body) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Schmidt has been sidelined since suffering a lower-body injury during Vegas' regular-season opener against the Sharks on Oct. 2, but he finally returned to practice Monday, which was the first indication that he was likely on the verge of rejoining the lineup. The 28-year-old blueliner, who picked up nine goals and 30 points in 61 games with the Golden Knights last campaign, should be back in action Thursday against Montreal.
