Blues director of amateur scouting Bill Armstrong thinks Jordan Schmaltz has the potential to become a top-four defenseman.
Schmaltz was taken with the 25th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. "He's got some high-end skill on the power play," Armstrong said. "That was probably one of the strongest things that we liked about him, that he can run a power play from up top. He's got some great qualities to move the puck ... really sees the ice well and he has the ability to jump up." Schmaltz could have a lot of fantasy value if he eventually lives up to his potential, but he shouldn't be counted on to contribute for a while. Sat, Jun 23, 2012 11:26:00 AM

The St. Louis Blues have taken Jordan Schmaltz with the 25th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Schmaltz has the potential to be the type of defenseman that fantasy owners love. He has offensive upside and could develop into a power-play quarterback for the Blues. That being said, he's a long-term project and he shouldn't be counted on to play in the NHL over the next couple of years. The Blues went a bit off the board with this one, but it's not shocking that he was taken late in the first round.
