Schmaltz missed the entirety of the playoffs due to a head injury, NHL.com's Nick Cotsonika reports.
It was widely speculated that Schmaltz was sidelined with a head injury after a high hit knocked him out of the Coyotes pre-postseason exhibition match, but due to the NHL's new injury policy, it was never confirmed during the playoffs. The good news is the 24-year-old forward had just returned to practice before Arizona was knocked out of the playoffs Wednesday, so he should be ready to rock whenever the 2020-21 campaign gets underway. The Wisconsin native picked up 11 goals and 45 points in 70 games during the regular season.

Schmaltz still hasn't gotten into a postseason game this year after being injured in the exhibition lead up to the playoffs.

Schmaltz (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's Game 3 against the Avalanche, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Schmaltz will miss a seventh straight contest, and he's running out of time at this point, as Colorado will have an opportunity to take a commanding 3-0 series lead Saturday.

Schmaltz (undisclosed) will once again be sidelined for the Coyotes in Friday's Game 2 matchup with Colorado, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Schmaltz has yet to appear in a postseason contest for Arizona due to his lingering undisclosed issue. If the Wisconsin native is cleared to play at some point, he figures to immediately jump into a top-six role and should bolster the club's attack considering he racked up 11 goals and a career-high 34 helpers this year. Given the Coyotes are entering a back-to-back, it seems unlikely Schmaltz will be available for Game 3 on Saturday, either.

Schmaltz (undisclosed) left and will not return to Thursday's exhibition contest against the Golden Knights, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
Schmaltz was on the receiving end of a heavy check to the upper-body area from Vegas' Ryan Reaves in the second period. The 2014 first-round pick is in the midst of a breakout campaign, supplying 11 goals and 34 assists across 70 games. With Schmaltz exiting, Barrett Hayton, who was the 13th forward dressed for the contest, assumed his role on the second line and the power play. Expect the team to provide an update on Schmaltz's status ahead of Sunday's matchup against Nashville.
Schmaltz amassed 11 goals and 34 assists in 70 games prior to the suspension of play in mid-March.
It's somewhat hard to fathom, but the 24-year-old's unspectacular 45 points are actually second among Coyotes beyond Taylor Hall's 52 -- especially since they were only five points out of a playoff spot with 12 games remaining when play was halted. After an injury-plagued 2018-19, Schmaltz got back on track this year and would likely challenge his 52-point career high (2017-18 with Chicago) should the regular-season resume.

More well known for his slick playmaking abilities and his preference to dish the puck, Schmaltz's two-goal performance was his first of the season.
