Canucks' Nate Schmidt: First tally with Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt scored a goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.

Schmidt got the Canucks on the board with his second-period marker. The 29-year-old defenseman has opened his scoring account with his new team. He's also added five blocked shots and three shots on net in two games. Schmidt is a decent depth option for fantasy managers, but Quinn Hughes' power-play prowess will reduce how effective Schmidt can be offensively.

Canucks' Nate Schmidt: Dealt to Vanouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt was traded from Vegas to Vancouver in exchange for a 2022 third-round draft pick Monday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

The Canucks were able to take advantage of Vegas' tight cap situation after the team signed Alex Pietrangelo on Monday. Schmidt scored 31 points in 59 games last season, his third straight season with at least 30 points. The Minnesota native should be a strong, top-four minutes eater with Vancouver as he was with the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Snaps slump with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt had a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Stars in Game 4.

Schmidt received a faceoff win from Paul Stastny and teed up Alec Martinez for a one-timer from the point, which counted as Vegas' lone goal. Schmidt had gone six games without a point entering Saturday. The 29-year-old blueliner has two goals, seven helpers and 64 hits through 19 playoff outings.

Schmidt proved clutch Sunday, scoring the game-tying goal in the third period and adding an assist on Max Pacioretty's go-ahead tally just 4:10 later. The two-point effort gives Schmidt two goals, six helpers, 42 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 12 playoff contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt recorded a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks in Game 5.

Schmidt has racked up a goal and four helpers in eight postseason outings. He's added 28 shots on net and a plus-1 rating. The 29-year-old blueliner should continue to be a steadying presence for the Golden Knights entering the second round.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Contributes assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt snagged his third helper of the postseason on Patrick Brown's second-period tally. He's added a goal, a plus-3 rating and 19 shots through six playoff games. Schmidt sees heavy minutes as part of the Golden Knights' top four on the blue line, and he's returned decent offense.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: In on tying, winning goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmidt collected a goal and an assist with five shots and a plus-3 rating in Monday's 5-3 round-robin win over Dallas.

Schmidt tied the game with 8:45 remaining in regulation, jumping into a rush as the late trailer and beating Dallas goalie Ben Bishop from the slot. Then he set up William Carrier's go-ahead goal three-and-a-half minutes later. It was a strong all-around fantasy performance for the veteran defenseman, who led all Vegas defensemen in shots and racked up 24:38 of ice time.

Golden Knights' Nate Schmidt: Records power-play assist
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.

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.
