NICK SCHULTZ RUMORS & GOSSIP
This wasn't the first time for Nick Schultz, but it was different. The Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman, acquired at the trade deadline from Edmonton, has been through this once before in his career. It was just two years ago, when he was moved to the Oilers, from Minnesota.
"I think when I got traded from Minnesota to Edmonton it was a shock. I wasn't really expecting...
No, not the good Schultz. 31-year-old, left-handed shooting defenseman Nick Schultz is heading to the Columbus Blue Jackets from the Edmonton Oilers.
