Schultz is a solid defensive defenseman who has played 871 games since the 2001-02 season. He doesn’t score much, but he is still a very effective player on the back-end.
In Edmonton, he shared a defense pairing with 23-year old, fellow-last-name-holder-albeit-unrelated Justin Schultz.
The trade comes after the Blue Jackets traded Marian Gaborik away and received Matt Frattin in return earlier in the day.
