The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6-1, 200-lb unrestricted free agent defenseman Nick Schultz to a one-year contract, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
 
Schultz, 31 (8/25/1982), comes to the Flyers with 880 games of NHL experience with Minnesota, Edmonton and Columbus.  He split the 2013-14 season between the Oilers and Blue Jackets, posting five assists and 28 PIM in 69 total games.
 
Schultz was drafted in the second round (33rd overall) by the Minnesota Wild in the team’s first-ever NHL Entry Draft in 2000, and as such was the second draft pick in the team’s history.  He appeared in 743 games for the Wild over ten seasons from 2001-2011 and remains the franchise’s all-time leader in games played.  Schultz recorded 26 goals and 102 assists for 128 points during that time and averaged 19:35 of ice time per game over his ten years with the Wild.
 
Schultz was traded to Edmonton in exchange for Tom Gilbert on February 27, 2012 and spent parts of three seasons with the Oilers before being traded to Columbus for a fifth-round draft pick at the trade deadline on March 5, 2014.
 
2014-15 Flyers full and partial season ticket packages are on sale now. Call 215-218-PUCK or visit PhiladelphiaFlyers.com for ticket package information.
