2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2014-15

Signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Minnesota in 2012, Schmidt has steadily established himself as a legitimate NHL prospect. Like 2012-2013, Schmidt is likely to spend the balance of the upcoming season in the AHL, but he has shown flashes of potential and will likely get another taste of NHL action as an injury call-up. The former NCAA standout has all the tools to be a serviceable top-6 defenseman in the NHL at some point in the future.
