RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jordan Schmaltz.
Since being selected No. 25 overall by the Blues in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Schmaltz has spent the last two seasons at the University of North Dakota, amassing nine goals and 27 assists over 83 caps. The 20-year-old will head back to college in the fall, but he put his skills on display for the Blues’ brass in July at their development camp, showcasing his blend of excellent vision, acceleration and puck-handling. The Blues have high hopes for what Schmaltz’s future might hold on their blue line, though his college point totals wouldn’t seem to suggest he’ll be an elite scoring defenseman at the NHL level. After he completes his junior season at North Dakota, Schmaltz could make the jump to AHL Chicago to close out the campaign.
