Nick Schultz D PHI 23 Days

Schultz assisted on R.J. Umberger's second-period power-play goal in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.

With only six points in 24 games, Schultz isn't on the radar in most standard fantasy formats, but he's been one of the more trusted blue line options for the team this season for his work on the back end. He's only sat out one game this season and leads all Flyers defensemen with 53 blocked shots.

Just an FYI as both players have no fantasy value.

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.

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.

Nick Schultz was booed by the crowd in Anaheim on Monday.

The boos were meant for his teammate Justin Schultz who refused to sign with the Ducks last season and became an unrestricted free agent, eventually signing with the Oilers. Some fans in Anaheim could not distinguish between the two and hence Nick was booed. He scored his first goal of the season in a 2-1 loss. Maybe the boos were good for him.

Nick Schultz scored his first goal of the season in the Oilers 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

While Justin Schultz is an offensive gem, Nick is a rugged defensive defenseman who doesn't offer much in the oppositions zone. Look elsewhere for blueline help.

Nick Schultz thinks Oilers coach Ralph Krueger is getting through to the team.

"They're still showing things after games where we need to be better," Schultz said. "Guys are starting to buy into that and realize that the good teams we come up against, like Chicago and other teams that are playing well and having success, they stick to their game plan, stick to their system. If it means being back in a certain spot, even though you're an offensive guy, you've got to do it. That's how you generate chances and win games, and ultimately, that's what you want." Edmonton isn't short on talent, but it might take some time before their young core can help transform the Oilers into a genuine Stanley Cup contender. In the meantime, the Oilers still have a shot to make the playoffs in 2013.
