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.

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 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 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.

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.

Justin Schultz was happy with how he did in his first preseason game of 2014.

"I felt really good (Sunday)," Schultz said. "I wanted to play my game, which is jumping up in the rush, which I thought I did quite well. The legs were there, which was good. It was a good win tonight." He stood out with a goal and an assist in Edmonton's 3-1 victory against Calgary. Schultz had 33 points in 74 games last season, but he's capable of doing more offensively.

Justin Schultz scored the game-winner and added an assist in Edmonton’s 3-1 win over Calgary.

The Oilers and Flames played two split-squad games Sunday night, one in Edmonton and one in Calgary. This game was in Edmonton. Schultz scored on a wrist shot midway through the first period and added an assist on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ second period goal. The 24-year-old defenseman registered 11 goals and 33 points last season. Schultz has the offensive ability to improve on those numbers, but he’ll have to clean up his defensive game this season. Marco Roy scored the other goal for the Oilers.
