David Schlemko and Keith Yandle were defense partners on Saturday.

It was thought that the pairing would have a tough time as both are offensive minded rearguards who like to carry the puck but they worked out nicely together on Saturday. Schlemko has a goal and four points in 17 games this season but if he continues to play with Yandle in even strength situations, he should do better.
Dec 14 - 6:00 AM

Dec 5 - 1:55 PM

David Schlemko scored his first of the season in Arizona's 4-3 shootout win over San Jose Saturday.

Just a few days after being recalled, Schlemko gave the Coyotes a 2-0 lead. He now has a goal and an assist in the two games since he was recalled after the Coyotes placed him on waivers, which he passed through, before he was sent to the minors for a couple of days. Schlemko has three points in nine games but should be a depth defenseman, even in deep leagues, at this time.

David Schlemko is not close to returning to action.

He is nursing a left foot injury sustained while blocking a shot over two weeks ago and has not recovered sufficiently to suit up. Of Schlemko, Coyote coach Dave Tippet said: "He may travel, but I don't foresee him being a player any time soon". Keep Schlemko on reserve until further notice.

David Schlemko (lower body) has returned to Phoenix while his teammates continue their road trip.

Mar 11 - 12:38 PM

David Schlemko has been wearing a protective walking boot ever since he blocked a shot from P.K. Subban on Thursday.

The defenseman is day-to-day and missed Saturday's game against Washington. "We'll see how it goes," coach Dave Tippett said. "It's just a pain issue whether he can get through it." Schlemko has little fantasy value with only one goal and nine points in 48 games.
Mar 9 - 9:34 AM
