VIDEO: Justin Schultz Notches 1st Career NHL Goal

Former Wisconsin defenseman Justin Schultz notched his first career NHL goal last night vs the San Jose Sharks in a 6-3 loss. The goal came on a five-on-three power-play, and was assisted by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle.

Schultz played a team-high 23 minutes last night despite the fact that it was just his second career NHL game. Schultz finished the night even in the plus/minus category, and registered four shots on net in addition to his goal.

At Wisconsin, Schultz was a two-time top-10 Hobey Baker finalist, as well as was the top point-producing defensemen in back-to-back seasons. A 2008 second round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks, Schultz became a free agent this summer and signed a two-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers.
