Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Collects pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz registered two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 3-0 win over the Kings.

Schmaltz had a hand in Conor Garland's opening goal 3:12 into the game, and then delivered the secondary assist on Jakob Chychrun's power-play goal in the second period. The forward has collected 18 points (four goals, 14 helpers) and a plus-8 rating through 22 games this season. Four of his points have come with the man advantage.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Collects another assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz finished Thursday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota with an assist.

Schmaltz bagged his 12th helper of 2019-20 on Thursday, albeit in a loss. The top-line center has 16 points this season but after Thursday's contest, Schmaltz has now gone 10 consecutive games without lighting the lamp.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Assists in three straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz delivered an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Flames.

Schmaltz is becoming quite the regular presence on the scoresheet, with 14 points (four goals, 10 helpers) in 15 games. The forward has a plus-8 rating and 21 shots on goal in 2019-20. While he's hot, he's worth a look in DFS for Thursday against the Blue Jackets.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Helps out in overtime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz provided an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Oilers.

Schmaltz delivered a pass to Derek Stepan for the game-winning goal in Monday's contest. Schmaltz has emerged as a valuable fantasy performer with four goals and nine assists through 13 games. He also plays all around the top-six, and may have eligibility at center and on the wing in some formats.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Stays hot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

He opened the scoring for the Coyotes late in the first period, then set up Barrett Hayton for the eventual game-winner early in the third. Schmaltz bounced right back after seeing his six-game point streak snapped Thursday against the Islanders, and the 23-year-old has four goals and 11 points in 10 contests to begin the season.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Notches pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz served up two assists, one on the power play, and three shots on goal in a 5-2 win over the Predators on Thursday.

Schmaltz had the only helper on Christian Dvorak's opening goal, and also set up Jakob Chychrun for what would be the game-winner. All of the 23-year-old winger's offense this year has come during his current four-game point streak, in which he has three goals and four assists.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Three points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz scored a power-play goal and collected a pair of even-strength assists in a 4-2 win over the Jets on Tuesday.

The three points give Schmaltz five in five games and extend his point streak to three. Tuesday also saw Schmaltz record his first power-play point of the 2019-20 season, a goal sandwiched between two even-strength assists. Considering the performance, expect the 23-year-old to see more ice time in future games than he did versus Winnipeg, where he logged a season-low 12:19.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Tallies in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Make that goals in back-to-back games for the 23-year-old forward. His tally was enough to force overtime, where the Avalanche's Andre Burakovsky spoiled the comeback. Schmaltz will get his chances as a top-six winger for the Coyotes, as he looks to regain the 50-point status he had in 2017-18 with the Blackhawks.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Finds twine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz scored a goal and fired a team-high five shots on goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights.

Schmaltz, like the Coyotes as a whole, started the year a bit slow on offense, but he was able to pot his first goal of the year Thursday. Schmaltz had 52 points in 78 games with the Blackhawks in 2017-18 before an injury-ravaged campaign last season limited him to 25 points in 40 contests. The 23-year-old should see his chances as long as he stays in the top-six.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Quiet start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz has gone scoreless while posting a minus-1 rating and one shot on goal through the first two games of the campaign.

The Coyotes have struggled as whole thus far, managing just one goal as a team through their first two contests, so there's no need to panic about Schmaltz' lack of production just yet. The 23-year-old is locked into a top-six role and a spot on Arizona's second power-play unit, so opportunities to crack the score sheet will undoubtedly arise sooner rather than later. He'll look to notch his first point of 2019-20 in Thursday's home clash with the Golden Knights.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Minus-4 in preseason tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (lower body) registered three shots and a minus-4 rating in 17:28 of ice time versus Vegas on Sunday.

Schmaltz was back on the ice after missing the second half of the 2018-19 campaign due to a lower-body issue. The center also saw 5:17 of ice time with the man advantage and should see significant power-play minutes this season along with a top-six role. Prior to getting hurt, the 23-year-old racked up 14 points in 17 appearances for the Yotes following his mid-season move from Chicago and is capable of topping the 40-point threshold in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Inks seven-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) has signed a seven-year extension with the Coyotes that will net him $5.85 million annually, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Schmaltz remains on the recovery path from a knee injury that has ended his 2018-19 campaign, but that didn't stop him from going to the negotiating table with the Coyotes. Prior to his injury, the 23-year-old winger was beginning to display signs of a breakout campaign, racking up 14 points -- five goals and nine assists -- over 17 games. He will avoid any arbitration with the Coyotes and will receive a huge bump in pay next season after earning just over $1.5 million for 2018-19.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Closing in on long-term extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) has agreed to terms with the Coyotes on a long-term contract extension, with the specific terms of the deal pending, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Schmaltz reportedly has been skating as part of his rehab from a devestating knee injury that ended his season in early January. He added seven goals and 18 assists over 40 games between the Blackhawks and Coyotes this season, and the 'Yotes undoubtedly appreciate his skill set and wherewethal on the power play and penalty kill. We'll follow up again once the deal is finalized.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (lower body) will miss the rest of the 2018-19 season.

Schmaltz had gotten off to a hot start in his short time with the Coyotes, racking up 14 points through 17 games with the club. He will enter the offseason set to become a restricted free agent, but Arizona will almost certainly look to lock him up for additional seasons. The 22-year-old winger will now turn his focus toward returning for the 2019-20 season.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Given 'week-to-week' label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) is week-to-week with his injury.

The Coyotes have placed Schmaltz on injured reserve, using the open roster spot to recall Laurent Dauphin from AHL Tucson. With Schmaltz, Christian Dvorak (lower body), Michael Grabner (eye) and defenseman Jason Demers (knee) all out of commission, there's not much hope that Arizona can resuscitate its 28th-ranked offense in the season's second half.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) has been designated for injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

The decision to place Schmaltz on IR shouldn't come as a surprise considering the team is expecting him to be out a significant amount of time. While no official timeline has been provided by the Coyotes yet, there doesn't seem to be a lot of optimism coming out of the desert.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Injury feared to be long term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) could be facing an extended absence, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

It's not abundantly clear how Morgan defines an extended absence, though he does suspect that Schmaltz will be placed on injured reserve due to his lingering injury. This is a perilous development involving a banged-up team that is only two steps (read: points) above the cellar of the Pacific Division standings at 17-21-2. Schmaltz has five goals and nine assists through 17 games since moving from Chicago to Arizona on Nov. 25.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Will sit out Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz (upper body) will miss Wednesday's home game versus the Oilers, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.

Schmaltz remains day-to-day after leaving Arizona's last game with an upper-body injury. His owners will hope he can return Thursday when the Coyotes take on New Jersey at home. Since coming over from the Blackhawks, the 22-year-old has scored five goals and posted 14 points in 17 games.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Dealing with upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

The Coyotes will play host to the Oilers on Wednesday, with Schmaltz's status suddenly called into question. Checking back to his last in-game appearance, Schmaltz posted a minus-2 rating and managed only one shot Sunday in a 5-1 home loss to the Golden Knights; he also was limited to 16:39 of ice time. If the top-line forward ends up missing the next game, that would heighten the urgency in getting Brad Richardson back from his illness.

Coyotes' Nick Schmaltz: Continues to thrive for Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schmaltz notched two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers.

The 22-year-old grabbed the second helper on Arizona's first goal of the night as it started a comeback from a 3-0 deficit, then set up Derek Stepan for the game-winner. Schmaltz now has four goals and nine points in nine games since his trade from Chicago, and the 2014 first-round pick seems right at home in a top-six assignment for his new club.
