looks like the roster is complete now.
Schmidt is really more of a two-way defenseman but his offense doesn't really carry in better leagues talent-wise. In the ECHL last year he was one of the league's top defensemen, and in the AHL he was a solid defender but didn't really wow me offensively. Of course, his ice time was also limited, but he still got 4 goals in 44 games.

He's a good guy for the 2nd or 3rd pairing, but if you're expecting to be a competitive team, you don't want him playing top four minutes unless your team is having injury problems in the back end.
