Justin Schultz had an assist in a 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

Schultz has five goals and 24 points in 63 games in 2014-15. There's a decent chance he'll reach the 30-point mark for the second straight season, but he isn't likely to do much better than that.
Mar 4 - 9:05 AM

Justin Schultz potted a goal for the Oilers in their 2-1 loss to St. Louis on Saturday night.

There is still an outside chance Schultz reaches his career high of 33 points set last season, but with five goals, it’s unlikely he will get to 11. The goal was his first point in five games, and his goal was his first since Feb. 2. He has 23 points this season. Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins registered the helpers.
Mar 1 - 12:52 AM

Justin Schultz was a minus-three on Saturday.

Schultz is the Oilers quarterback on the power play but has only four goals and 21 points this season. He has been a minus-six in his last three games but is only a minus-nine this season, not too bad for a porous Oilers team. Everyone has big expectations for Schultz in fantasy hockey but he has yet to produce in three seasons at the NHL level.
Feb 15 - 7:13 AM

Justin Schultz had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 shootout win on Monday.

It was Schultz's first multi-point game of the 2014-15 campaign. He's had four goals and 21 points in 50 contests. That puts him in position to potentially surpass his 2013-14 mark of 33 points.

Justin Schultz had an assist in a 4-2 loss to St. Louis Tuesday night.

Schultz has recorded a point in back-to-back games. He has three goals and 15 assists in 43 contests this season.
Jan 14 - 9:13 AM

Justin Schultz registered an assist in a 4-2 loss on Sunday.

Schultz has three goals and 17 points in 42 contests. He's capable of more, but the Oilers offense has been anemic overall and that's taken its toll on him.
Jan 12 - 10:54 AM

Justin Schultz scored the only Edmonton goal in a 5-1 loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday night.

The Oilers as a whole have been a gigantic mess this year and Schultz has not managed to separate himself from the team's difficulties. Brad Hunt and Marc Arcobello drew assists on the tally.

Justin Schultz had an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss on Wednesday.

Schultz was in the press box on Nov. 27, but he logged over 20 minutes in the Oilers' following two games. He has two goals and nine assists in 25 contests in 2014-15.

Justin Schultz was a healthy scratch again on Friday.

Schultz has sat in the press box the last two games as coach Dallas Eakins is hoping that watching some games will help his play. Schultz has two goals and 10 points with a minus-seven rating. Keep him on your bench, even when he returns to action.

Justin Schultz is expected to draw back into the lineup for Keith Aulie Friday night against the Blues after sitting out Thursday night.

Whatever Dallas Eakins is doing, it needs to start translating into wins.

Justin Schultz will be a healthy scratch Thursday night versus Nashville.

"Justin has struggled a little bit as of late, and we felt it was best to hit the reset button," said coach Dallas Eakins. Schultz has recorded four assists in his past six games, but he also has a minus-4 rating during that time and his ice time dropped to 15:13 against Dallas on Tuesday. He made a bad line change that led to a goal by Tyler Seguin in the contest.

Justin Schultz had an assist in the Oilers' 4-1 loss on Tuesday.

Schultz now has two goals and five points in 12 games this season. He's a decent defenseman from an offensive perspective, but not a top-tier one. We don't expect him to get much more than 30 points in 2014-15.
Wed, Nov 5, 2014 10:31:00 AM

Justin Schultz scored his first goal of the season on Monday.

Schultz has two points and a minus-five rating in six games. He should get better as the season goes on, although we wouldn't expect too much more than 30 points from him.
Tue, Oct 21, 2014 08:59:00 AM

Justin Schultz is a minus-five after five games this season.

The trend continues as Schultz had been a minus-39 in his previous 122 NHL games before the start of this season. He has only one assist this season and we cannot recommend him at this time.
