Coyotes Confident Schmaltz Can Help Offense Produce

November 27, 2018 12:57 am

GLENDALE, AZ – Coyotes General Manager John Chayka had wanted to add forward Nick Schmaltz to the roster for some time. Late Sunday, after a 6-1 loss to Calgary on home ice, Chayka pulled the trigger on a two-for-one trade with Chicago and brought Schmaltz into the mix.

“He’s a guy that has top-line potential,” Chayka said Monday morning. “Speed, skill, creativity … Obviously he’s a right shot, which we need. He can play center, he can play wing. When he’s playing center, he’s an elite skater and can really push the pace from the middle of the ice. I think that adds another element and dimension to our team that we’ve been missing. Our offense hasn’t been what we would have hoped through a quarter of the season, so hopefully he can give us a boost in that regard.”

I first met Kevin Magnuson when I was playing midget in Illinois . . . we instantly got along really well and he fit in really well with my family which is important to me when choosing a family advisor and someone that would become my agent and he is just a very honest and trustworthy guy, which I liked, and we have been close ever since.
