Justin Schultz D EDM 13 Days

Schultz gathered a power-play assist in Thursday's loss to the Bruins, but finished the game with a minus-2 rating.

Schultz continues to pace the Oilers in defensemen scoring, but the plus/minus rating will always be a drag on his fantasy value. The 24-year-old is already down to a minus-5 rating through his first 13 games, bringing him all the way down to minus-44 over his 135 career NHL games.

Schultz scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Capitals.

The 24-year-old has now found the twine in consecutive games, after managing only one point in his first five contests. Schultz is still prone to lapses on his own end -- he let the Caps' Alex Ovechkin glide by him easily in the third period for what was nearly the game-tying score -- but he's far and away the Oilers' top scoring threat from the blue line.

Schultz signed a one-year, $3.8 million deal with the Oilers on Friday, Ryan Rishaug of TSN reports.

The restricted free agent defenseman averaged 23:21 of ice time per game last season, registering 11 goals and 22 assists. His production has still been somewhat disappointing, though, as he hasn't quite shown the consistent offensive game that vaulted him to college stardom. Still, he's been a consistent contributor and should return in a similar role in 2014-15.

Schultz's plus/minus rating has fallen to minus-21. That negates some of his offensive value, but it's something that should improve in the years to come, in part because the Oilers are likely to eventually start getting moving further away from the NHL's basement.
