Team: Edmonton Oilers
A veteran of 868 NHL games, 31-year-old Nick Schultz is a soon-to-be free agent on an Oilers team that currently has the second-fewest points in the league. Schultz began his career in 2001-02 with the Minnesota Wild, playing 9½ seasons in Minnesota before being traded to the Oilers midway through 2011-12.
Schultz has 27 goals and 118 points in his career, this season recording no goals and four assists in 57 games prior to the Olympic break. While he averages only 17:56 in ice time this season, Schultz has a career average of 19:22. He is making $3.5 million this season and could be someone the Oilers are looking to deal for pieces before losing him in free agency.
