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.
Oct 27 - 9:54 AM

Nick Schultz has inked a two-year extension with Philadelphia.

The average annual value of the deal is set at $2.25 million. Schultz has 13 points, 107 blocks and 72 hits in 55 games with the Flyers this season.
Feb 18 - 3:35 PM

Nick Schultz scored a goal in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders.

Schultz went from scoring no goals in 47 contests to two markers in three games. Despite that outburst, he has little to no fantasy value in standard leagues going forward.
Feb 6 - 10:27 AM

Nick Schultz scored his first goal of the season in a 5-2 win against Winnipeg on Thursday.

Schultz was playing in his second straight game after dealing with a minor upper-body injury. He has 11 points in 48 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 11:12 AM

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

He didn't play in Philadelphia's last game before the All-Star break because of an upper-body injury. Schultz recorded two shots and saw 20:56 of ice time in 4-3 shootout win over Arizona.
Jan 28 - 1:49 AM

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.
Jan 19 - 6:13 PM

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.
Jan 8 - 10:00 PM

Nick Schultz is hoping to sign a contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Schultz is playing out a one-year, $1.25 million contract. He has eight assists and a plus-eight rating while averaging 19:05 minutes per contest over 36 games this season. "I'd love to stay here," Schultz said. "It's been good. I enjoy the group here, the guys on the team; the organization has been great. I think the biggest thing is my family enjoys it. That's a big thing now, when you've got kids. It isn't easy moving them around and stuff. It would be nice to stick to one spot." The Flyers have interest in keeping him too and the two sides are expected to begin negotiating in the next few days.
Jan 2 - 9:42 AM

Newly-acquired Nick Schultz is likely to start the season as Philadelphia's seventh defenseman.

The medical situation befalling Kimmo Timonen looked like it may force Schultz into a more prominent role with his new club, but the quick addition of Michael Del Zotto likely pushes the former Oiler back down to the seventh position. Regardless of his NHL abilities, Schultz offers very little in the way of fantasy value.

Nick Schultz has agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Schultz had five assists in 69 games with Edmonton and Columbus in 2013-14. We can't see him getting much playing time in Philadelphia and his fantasy value in standard leagues is non-existent.

Nick Schultz will make his second appearance of the 2014 playoffs on Monday in Game 6.

Nick Schultz and Matt Frattin were healthy scratches on Saturday.

Just an FYI as both players have no fantasy value.
Sun, Apr 13, 2014 06:49:00 AM

Nick Schultz has been traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The former Oiler will be a solid defensive defenseman for the Blue Jackets but not much of a fantasy choice. The Oilers will receive a fifth round pick from the Blue Jackets. He had four assists in 60 games with a minus-11 rating with Edmonton this season.
Wed, Mar 5, 2014 02:32:00 PM

Defenseman Nick Schultz would like to stay with the Edmonton Oilers but wouldn't be at all surprised if they trade him before the NHL's trade deadline on Wednesday.

Schultz can head to the market as an unrestricted free agent after this season, so he is aware that much could change by Wednesday afternoon.There have been no talks about an extension with the Oilers, although Schultz said he would certainly entertain a discussion. "You definitely have it in the back of your mind that this might be it. You hope it’s not because you want to be a part of this, you can see there’s a chance here to have a good team," Schultz said. Schultz doesn't have much fantasy value. He has four assists in 58 games this season.
