The AHL is quite different from the US college game. Don't forget that he has 2 new linemates to get used to. That doesn't happen over night. Schwartz is a set-up man, whose new linemates need to know him and each other before he can start piling up points. He's not really a sniper.

Having been a winger, I can attest to the fact that one might be playing solid 2-way hockey and yet go through periods of playing very well and yet not be scoring much. Hockey is a team game. Scoring in the offensive zone also depends to some upon how one's team is doing in their defensive end and the transitional game. Hockey is a TEAM sport. One player's stats depend on a whole load of factors. Two months statistics in a new league with new linemates doesn't tell the whole story of a forward's worth (not by a longshot).
