This one’s not for the faint of heart.
It wasn’t the hit, per se, that caused the issue, but rather Schultz falling backward awkwardly with his ankle twisted underneath him.
The result wasn’t pretty.
Schultz had four assists in three games coming into Saturday’s action and is a fixture in the Pens’ top four on the blue line, logging 17:34 per game so far this year.
It goes without saying, but the loss of Schultz for any length of time would be a major blow to the Penguins.
