Schultz will pair with Evgeny Medvedev on the team's top defensive unit. The veteran defender Schultz may have just a point and 12 PIMs through 24 games thus far, but he also has 28 hits and 54 blocks which makes him a nice plug if your league rewards bruisers.

Nick Schultz, who was knocked out of Saturday's game against the Rangeres, said he's feeling better.

Schultz exited the game after being hit by Dylan McIlrath. "I was banged up a little bit, so the docs just thought it was better to stay out and just kind of go from there," he said. "It didn’t feel too good at the time. I felt all right [today]. I just wanted to go out there and get a skate in and see how it went. So it was good. It’s a process." Schultz is day-to-day and it's unclear if he'll be available for Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

Nick Schultz left Saturday's game against the Rangers because of an upper-body injury.

Schultz was flattened by Rangers defenseman Dylan McIlrath in the first period and he did not return. Luke Schenn came in to defend Schultz by dropping the gloves with McIlrath. Schultz should be considered day-to-day at this point.

It was Schultz's first point in 11 games this season. He's not expected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Nick Schultz doesn't have a point in seven games this season.

Schultz is one of those players that's more valuable to his team than he is to most fantasy owners. The 33-year-old has never been an offensive defenseman and that certainly isn't expected to change this season.

Nick Schultz (upper body) returned to action on Tuesday January 27.

Nick Schultz will miss Tuesday's game due to an upper-body injury.

Schultz has 10 assists in 46 games this season. Carlo Colaiacovo was also hurt on Monday and might miss Tuesday's contest as a result. If Colaiacovo can't play, then Philadelphia only has four healthy blueliners on its active roster. Naturally, you can count on the Flyers calling up defensemen as a result and one of them is likely to be Brandon Manning.

Nick Schultz had two assists and Jakub Voracek scored the overtime winner as the Flyers edged the Capitals 3-2 in overtime to snap a five game losing streak.

"I don't think I've ever had two assists in a game," joked Shultz at the end of the night. "It's nice to get the two points and hopefully we can build on it," he said. As a matter of fact, Schultz has managed to compile two assists in a game four times in his 13-year career, the last multi-point game coming on Nov. 19, 2010. The 32-year-old has eight assists in 39 games.
