Really hope we get this kid.

Look, depth at the defense position is critical.

McIlrath will probably be a player, but you never know what injuries will occur. See: Staal and Sauer.

No one knows what Sauer's situation will be next September. Instead of having another Staal situation on our hands, we could have this kid (hopefully) in camp fighting with McIlrath and Erixon for two spots. Three guys, two spots.

If Sauer is healthy, GREAT. But we would have QUALITY depth in case.

If that happened, Schultz could spend a couple/few months in Hartford getting stronger and used to the pro level.

Schultz has the potential to be a big time impact offensive defenseman. Signing him would be huge. He would instantly become our third best prospect behind Kreider and Erixon.
