We're probably not going to see that out of Schroeder 82 games a year... that's likely the most physical game he's played this year. I actually thought he didn't get knocked around that much, other than that time he slid into the boards and when he fell down a couple times after getting tied up with players.

But as he adapts to the NHL and settles in he's not going to need to be as physical - I really don't think that's the sort of style you're going to see out of him on a consistent basis. Consider that he was probably the most involved in board battles out of his line (didn't see much of that from Weise who was only hitting guys after the puck was gone) - he should be getting some help on that front in future considering some of the other wingers he's likely to play with who can grind it out along the wall - Booth, Higgins, Burrows, Hansen, Kassian etc.
