Schultz said he knows he will not be back with the Flyers after logging just 28 games in the 2016-17 season, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schultz is hopeful of getting an opportunity with another organization. He will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The 34-year-old defenseman has a long way to go before he can be trusted by fantasy owners again.

Schultz played just 14:54 during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran rearguard has played just 23 games this season and has only four assists. Considering his lack of playing time and underwhelming offensive numbers, there is no reason to make Schultz a fantasy priority in any setting.

Schultz has dressed for just three of the past 16 games.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman has only met the 20-point plateau once in his career (2009-10), so he's never been a viable fantasy option. However, this season represents the first time he's been frequenting the press box. Continue to ignore Schultz in all fantasy settings.

Schultz has played just 13 games this season and has been a frequent healthy scratch.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran defenseman played 161 games through his first two seasons with Philadelphia, so his lack of playing time is a little surprising. Schultz is on the final year of a $2.25 million contract, so there is a chance he's dealt leading into the trade deadline. However, it's unlikely he's utilized as anything more than a depth defenseman with another team, either. Schultz is fully off the fantasy radar at this point.

Schultz (knee) is skating Sunday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schultz suffered a sprained knee at the end of September and was originally given a 4-to-7 day timeline for a return. It's been four days since that projection was given, so it comes as no surprise Schultz is back on the ice Sunday. It appears he's over the knee injury and as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks over the next few days, it's safe to assume he'll be healthy for the the start of the regular season.

Schultz is dealing with a sprained knee, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Flyers announced Wednesday that Schultz had suffered a lower body injury, and was expected to miss 4-to-7 days. The specifics of the ailment were revealed Thursday morning, but the injury is still thought to be minor. Look for Schultz to return to action for the Flyers' final two preseason games.

Schultz will be out 4-to-7 days with a lower-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

Schultz likely won't return to game action until Philadelphia's penultimate preseason contest Oct. 6 against the Rangers, but is expected to be ready for the Flyers' first regular-season contest Oct. 14 against LA. Owners keeping tabs on Schultz' health can expect an update on his status once he's ready to return to practice.

Schultz could be dealt by the Flyers before Monday's trade deadline, according to Sam Carchidi of the Inquirer.

EDGE Analysis

With a minus-1 rating and and seven points in 59 games this season, it's hard to imagine a trade impacting his fantasy value. He's off his pace of 15 points from last season, and he's reach the 20-point threshold only once in his career.

Schultz collected a helper and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

Schultz has never been a prolific points producer on defense, and he's on pace for just 10 points this season. Strangely, he's fared better on the road this season, collecting his four of his five helpers when he's team travels. He faces his former team, the Wild, Thursday in Minnesota, so if you're in desperate need of a long shot on defense, he could warrant a start.

Schultz (upper body) will return to action Friday against the Devils, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schultz exited Saturday's game against the Rangers in the first period with an upper-body injury, and ultimately was unable to return to the contest. He returned to practice Monday, but didn't feel well enough to suit up for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa. The 33-year-old blueliner practiced again Thursday, and is now healthy enough to draw back into Philadelphia's lineup for Friday's tilt against the Devils. Schultz, who has tallied a single assist in 24 games this season, is expected to skate alongside Yevgeni Medvedev on the Flyers' second pairing in Friday's game.
