Deadline acquisition Schultz hoping to help Blue Jackets extend season

This wasn't the first time for Nick Schultz, but it was different. The Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman, acquired at the trade deadline from Edmonton, has been through this once before in his career.

Oilers’ Nick Schultz Being Showcased?

Usually when a NHL team wants to trade a player, they will showcase him. Move him up in the lineup, give him more starts if he’s a goalie, stuff like that.

Bruins Still Looking For Stay-At-Home Dman

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, It would seem that Edmonton's 31-year-old Nick Schultz most closely fits the profile of what Boston is looking for: a veteran, stay-at-home, left-shooting defenseman that blocks a lot of shots. Schultz leads the Oilers with 90 blocked shots in 50 games, but has only three assists and a minus-17 while averaging 16:53 of ice time for the sad sack...
