Justin Schultz News
The Penguins have activated Justin Schultz (concussion) from IR; expected to return to the Penguins lineup on Tuesday.
Schultz (concussion) is skating and could join the Penguins on their road-trip.
The Penguins are in the middle of a five-game road trip and head coach Mike Sullivan said that Schultz is skating back in Pittsburgh and they haven’t ruled out that he could join the team in Western Canada. With Schultz and Matt Hunwick out, Chad Ruhwedel and Zach Trotman will remain in the lineup.
The Penguins have placed Justin Schultz (concussion) on IR.
Schultz left Tuesday’s game vs. Edmonton after being hit by Drake Caggiula and was diagnosed with a concussion postgame. It’s hard to pinpoint how long he will be sidelined with a concussion, but his move to IR means he’ll miss at least tonight’s game. With Schultz on IR, the Penguins have used that roster spot to recall Frank Corrado.
Schultz was diagnosed with a concussion after Tuesday’s game with Edmonton.
Schultz lasted just 5:51 TOI before departing following a Drake Caggiula hit and was diagnosed with a concussion after the game. Concussions are tricky, so don’t expect Schultz to play Thursday vs. Winnipeg.
The Penguins have re-signed Justin Schultz to a three-year deal worth $16.5M ($5.5M AAV).
Schultz (concussion) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Schultz has missed the last three games with a concussion, but was at practice on Friday and took part in today’s morning skate which suggests he should be in the lineup tonight despite being listed as a game-time decision. Schultz should play a big role with Kris Letang, Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta all sidelined with injuries.
Schultz (concussion) practiced on Thursday; expects to play on Saturday.
Schultz has missed the last three games with a concussion, but he took part in Thursday’s practice and expects to be back in the lineup for Saturday’s outdoor game vs. the Flyers. With Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta definitely out and Kris Letang potentially unavailable for that game, Schultz and his 39 points (9G / 30A) should play a huge role.
Schultz left Thursday's game with an undisclosed injury; questionable for Friday.
Schultz played just 8:40 before leaving Thursday’s game with an undisclosed injury. The Penguins also lost Olli Maatta last night, so if Schultz can’t go tonight they will be without two of their regular six defensemen. The Penguins recalled two blueliners this morning, which isn’t a great sign for Schultz owners.
The Penguins signed Justin Schultz to a one-year deal worth $1.4 million on July 13th.
Schultz, 26, was stuck on a bad Edmonton team for three and a half years, before being traded to Pittsburgh at last year’s trade deadline. He enjoyed success with the Penguins, picking up eight points (1G / 7A) in 18 regular season games and four assists in 15 playoff games, en route to winning the Stanley Cup. Schultz’s $1.4 million dollar contract is a pay-cut from his previous $3.9M AAV contract, but he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh.
Schultz is expected to replace Maatta in the Penguins lineup for Game 2.
Schultz will make his Penguins debut on Sunday.
Schultz has been a healthy scratch for the first three games since being acquired from Edmonton. He has had a tough season, posting just 10 points (3G / 7A) with a minus-22 rating in 45 games with Edmonton. He will replace Derrick Pouliot on Sunday.
The Penguins have acquired Justin Schultz from the Oilers for a third-round pick.
Schultz, 25, has seen his offensive numbers slip since posting 27 points (8G / 19A) in 48 games in his rookie season. He lacked confidence and often served as a healthy scratch this season, posting 10 points (3G / 7A) in 45 games. He heads to Pittsburgh where he should land a regular role on their third line with Ben Lovejoy sidelined, but until we see more offence, he should remain on the waiver wire.
