Nick Schmaltz Records Three Assists In Win Over New Jersey

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz had a season-high three assists as the team cruised to a 4-1 victory over New Jersey on Saturday. He collected his first helper when J.J. Moser opened the scoring 9:37 into the first period, added a power-play assist on Dylan Guenther's first-period goal, and completed the three-point outing with an assist on Clayton Keller's empty netter late in the game. Schmaltz has been fantastic this month, recording 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in nine games. He's had 19 goals and 29 assists in 65 games over the course of the season, producing 21 power-play points (10 goals, 11 assists).

Nick Schmaltz Remains Out On Monday

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (upper body) will sit out a third consecutive game Monday against Pittsburgh. Schmaltz was knocked out of the lineup by an upper-body injury a week ago just as he was enjoying one of his better spells of the season with a three-goal, tw0-assist effort across six games. The 27-year-old sits third in scoring on the team, with 28 points (13 goals, 15 assists) in 42 games. Jason Zucker has filled a top-six role during Schmaltz's absence, posting one assist in the two games Schmaltz has missed.

Nick Schmaltz Considered Day-To-Day Following Early Exit

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz didn't make it to the end of Tuesday's affair against Calgary, exiting the contest with an undisclosed injury. He notched an assist in 11:11 of action before leaving. Coyotes head coach Andre Tourigny announced postgame that Schmaltz is considered day-to-day and will be questionable for Thursday's matchup against Vancouver. Schmaltz is a key man for Arizona, and he's enjoyed a hot spell lately with five points in six games, including a three-game goal streak. For the season overall, Schmaltz has tallied 13 goals and 28 points in 42 games. Matias Maccelli moved up in the lineup in his absence on Tuesday.

Nick Schmaltz Posts Two Assists Wednesday

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz tallied two assists as the team fell 4-3 in overtime against the Oilers Wednesday. Arizona's first line had another great outing, with Clayton Keller scoring twice and Barrett Hayton reaching a nine-game point streak with an assist. Schmaltz has points from 11 of his last 13 appearances. He had a slow start to the campaign but has now pushed himself to 50 points with 53 games played. With Schmaltz clicking superbly with Keller and Hayton, managers should get very good production from him during the fantasy playoffs.

Nick Schmaltz Returns To Action

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (lower body) will be back in the lineup for Saturday's home game against Chicago. The talented scorer has been sidelined for three games with a lower-body injury. Before getting hurt, Schmaltz was playing his best hockey of the season. He scored 10 goals over a 14-game span, getting to 21 goals and 46 points for the season. The 27-year-old was also injured early in the campaign and hence he will be skating in only his 51st game of the season Saturday. Schmaltz's return means that Brett Ritchie will have to give up his spot on Arizona's best line which also features Clayton Keller and Brett Hayton.

Nick Schmaltz Keeps Scoring Goals For Fun

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz had his seventh goal in nine games when the team took down Nashville 4-1 on Thursday. He wrapped up the scoring with an empty-netter late in the game. Schmaltz has finished without a goal just four times across his last 14 appearances and is now sitting on 21 markers for the whole campaign. He has added 25 assists in 41 games during a prolific season. It looks to be only a matter of time until Schmaltz breaks his current record of 23 goals in a season and moves to a point-per-game pace. He has never been a point-per-game guy before and should be highly motivated by the opportunity to get there this season.

Nick Schmaltz Exits With An Upper-Body Injury

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz sustained an upper-body injury in Wednesday's meeting with Dallas and left the game after playing for less than 10 minutes. He took a slap shot to the side of his head. Despite getting hurt, Schmaltz managed to extend his point streak to five games with a power-play assist. The Coyotes still have two more games to come this week and Schmaltz has to make a quick recovery if he wants to be ready for these. The 27-year-old already missed plenty of time at the start of the season and has skated only 45 times for the Coyotes in 2022-23. He has tallied 18 goals and 24 assists, which puts him behind only Clayton Keller on the team's scoring charts.

Nick Schmaltz Scores His First Hat Trick

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz registered his first career hat trick and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-0 win over St. Louis. It was a tight game until the 10:55 mark in the second period when Schmaltz potted his first goal, and he ended up getting a natural hat trick before assisting Barrett Hayton in a power-play situation. The 26-year-old moved to 28 points for the campaign, having posted 11 goals and 17 assists in 33 outings. Schmaltz has recovered from a quiet spell with a three-game scoring streak that has seen him record seven points in total. He's nicely set up for further success on Saturday against fellow strugglers Anaheim.

Nick Schmaltz Dealing With An Upper-Body Injury

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz is nursing an upper-body injury and is listed as day-to-day. He was injured Thursday versus Toronto and wasn't able to recover in time for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay. Schmaltz also missed the start of the campaign and has skated in just 19 games so far. He has done well whilst on the ice, putting up seven goals and nine assists with 38 shots. Schmaltz will get his first opportunity to return on Tuesday against Florida.

Nick Schmaltz Picks Up Three Assists

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz put in a three-assist performance Friday against the Islanders, helping his side to a 5-4 win. Two of Schmaltz's helpers came in the third period when the Coyotes managed to break away from the Islanders, who had tied the game late in the second. Schmaltz was a superb plus-four for the night and also registered one shot in 20:06 of ice time. That's now six points for Schmaltz in four games, with the 26-year-old heating up again following a four-game scoring drought. He's had a solid season when healthy, posting four goals and six assists in 10 games with 25 shots and a plus-two rating.

Jakob Chychrun, Nick Schmaltz Back For Coyotes Monday

Arizona Coyotes defenseman Jakob Chychrun (wrist) and forward Nick Schmaltz (ribs) will make their long-awaited comebacks in Monday's matchup against Nashville. The latter hasn't played since the season opener, while Chychrun makes his first appearance since March 12. The talented blue-liner has had ankle and wrist surgeries since his last appearance. These are two massive pieces for the Coyotes, although it's unknown for how long. Chychrun has been in the rumor mill for a long time and looks certain to switch teams soon. Joining a better team will definitely provide a big boost to his fantasy value, although the 24-year-old has previously shown that he can also be a valuable asset whilst staying in the desert, leading all defensemen with 18 goals a couple of seasons back. Schmaltz might draw some trade interest as well after proving himself as a reliable scorer in Arizona. He has averaged 0.74 points per game in 203 outings for the team.

Nick Schmaltz Returns To Practice

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (ribs) joined his teammates in practice Wednesday and might be ready to play again soon. The talented scorer has been out since suffering a rib injury in the team's season opener on Oct. 13. He was slated to miss 6-8 weeks but has recovered quicker than expected and should be available soon. Schmaltz averaged nearly a point per game last season and even managed to finish with a plus-one rating on the second-worst team in the league, so fantasy managers should keep a close eye on his progression.

Nick Schmaltz Ruled Out For At Least Six Weeks

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (upper body) has been ruled out for six to eight weeks. The 26-year-old was injured last week in the team's season opener against Pittsburgh and he has already missed one game. Being without a player who averaged nearly a point per game last season is obviously a massive blow for the Coyotes. Lawson Crouse has stepped up to a first-line role and it looks like he's set to play a big part in the team's offense for a while now. The 25-year-old power forward has gone pointless in two games so far, but he showcased good ability last term with 20 goals and 34 points in 65 outings.

Nick Schmaltz Sustains An Upper-Body Injury

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz managed to take just five shifts in Thursday's 6-2 loss to Pittsburgh, leaving the game with an upper-body injury. There isn't much known of the injury so far, but head coach Andre Tourigny has already ruled him out of Saturday's tilt against the Bruins. Schmaltz, who produced a career-high 59 points in 63 appearances last season, is a key piece for the Coyotes and will be sorely missed. He opened the season as the first-line right wing alongside Clayton Keller and Travis Boyd.

Nick Schmaltz Remains Red-Hot

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz continued his great run of form on Monday against Ottawa, picking up a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win. Both of his points came in the final period of play and his goal ended up being the game-winning marker. Schmaltz has looked like prime Wayne Gretzky this month, bagging 16 points in six outings, and he's recorded 10 multi-point outings this season despite skating in only 40 games. Schmaltz's overall numbers for the campaign stand at 17 goals and 41 points. He was rostered by fewer than 10 percent of fantasy teams just a couple of weeks ago, and you will be lucky if you can find him on the waiver wire.

Nick Schmaltz Racks Up Four Points Against Detroit

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz remained red-hot on Tuesday against Detroit, logging two goals and two assists in a 9-2 win. This came just days after the 26-year-old posted a new franchise record with seven points against Ottawa. Bernie Nicholls and Mario Lemieux are the only players since 1986-87 to pick up more points over the span of two games. Everything has started to click for Schmaltz, and he's now on 27 points across his last 17 outings. We should praise the Coyotes offense as well, which has made huge strides lately. They became the first team since Pittsburgh in 1995-96 to score eight-plus goals in back-to-back games.

Nick Schmaltz Makes History With Seven-Point Outing

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz produced a spectacular seven-point performance against Ottawa on Saturday, setting a new franchise record for most points scored in a game. It also marks the most points a player has registered in the league since Sam Gagner picked up eight points in 2012. Schmaltz did the damage in an 8-5 win with two goals and five assists. The 26-year-old has hit great form since the start of last month, putting together multiple multi-point performances, which have upped his tally to 33 points in 36 games this season. The Coyotes still struggle to keep the puck out of the net, but they have been able to improve their offense a lot compared to the start of the season and Schmaltz is at the heart of things.

Nick Schmaltz Returns For Coyotes On Friday

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (upper body) will be back in the lineup on Friday against Florida. He will make only his seventh appearance of the season. The former Blackhawk will join the top six, playing right wing on a line alongside Lawson Crouse and Barrett Hayton. Christian Fischer is dropping to the fourth line. Schmaltz notched one point with 10 shots before getting hurt. He averages 0.60 points per game for his career and should be a nice addition for this Coyotes team that is scoring a league-low 1.76 goals per game this season. Arizona also gets Jay Beagle (lower body) back on Friday.

Nick Schmaltz Expected To Remain Out For Three To Four Weeks

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz (upper body) will miss a fourth consecutive game on Tuesday at Philadelphia, and now has a potential return date. The 25-year-old is expected to miss three to four more weeks, at a minimum. Schmaltz has picked up just one point this season, but he is among Arizona's most talented forwards, and his absence is another blow for a team that has had a miserable start to the season. Barrett Hayton has taken over as the first-line center since Schmaltz dropped out of the lineup, and Johan Larsson is centering the second line. Neither has managed to help the team's offense get going. Arizona's goals for average stands at 1.44.

Nick Schmaltz Possibly In The Lineup Wednesday

Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz playing status will be a game-time decision versus Los Angeles Wednesday. Schmaltz is sidelined due to an injury he sustained in pre-game warmups on Monday. If Schmaltz is out of the lineup, Lade Pederson will take his place. Through 52 Coyotes contests, Schmaltz produced 32 points, and he averages over 17:00 minutes of playing time per contest. In six games against the Kings, the Madison, Wisconsin native has recorded just one goal in six games.
