  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Won't play Tuesday

    Schmidt (upper body) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Calgary, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Out 4-6 weeks

    Schmidt (upper body) will miss 4-6 weeks, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Schmidt cleared concussion protocol, and Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet believes the Jets defender is dealing with a shoulder issue. The 31-year-old blueliner was injured in Thursday's contest against Nashville. Schmidt has six points, 37 shots on goal, 40 blocks and 19 hits in 29 games this season.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Placed on injured reserve

    Schmidt (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Schmidt suffered the injury Thursday against the Predators. Ville Heinola was recalled on an emergency basis to replace Schmidt on the roster. Schmidt has three goals and six points in 29 games this season. He likely will not return before Christmas.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: In concussion protocol

    Schmidt entered the concussion protocol following his exit from Thursday's game versus the Predators, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Schmidt being in the concussion protocol makes it questionable if he'll be able to play Saturday in Vancouver or Sunday in Seattle. If he doesn't travel with the Jets on the trip, expect Kyle Capobianco to draw into the lineup on the third pairing.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Sustains injury

    Schmidt (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Predators.

    Schmidt was crushed by Tanner Jeannot late in the first period, and it didn't take long for the Jets to rule him out for the game. The defenseman has struggled with six points in 29 outings this season, but Schmidt's veteran presence will be a big absence for the Jets. If he's not ready to play by Saturday, Kyle Capobianco would likely enter the lineup.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Produces two points in win

    Schmidt scored a goal and was credited with an assist during Sunday's 5-2 victory over the visiting Ducks.

    Releasing a shot from the point, Schmidt scored with 45 seconds remaining in the third period to cap Sunday's scoring. It was the first tally in 12 games for the 31-year-old defenseman. The multi-point effort was his first since Schmidt compiled a goal and an assist versus the Canadiens on March 1. Schmidt also contributed a game-high five blocks and three shots in the come-from-behind win.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Collects first helper

    Schmidt logged an assist and two PIM in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.

    Schmidt's helper was his first of the season, and his first point in the last eight games. The 31-year-old defenseman hasn't been able to generate much offense -- Josh Morrissey and Neal Pionk have been the Jets' most productive blueliners. Schmidt is at three points, 21 shots on net, a plus-2 rating, 29 blocked shots and 13 hits through 19 appearances.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: No assists this season

    Schmidt has yet to pick up an assist in 2022-23.

    Schmidt has two goals in 18 games and has not had a point in his last seven contests. The defenseman had four goals and 28 helpers in 2021-22, second-best in his career, behind the 36-point effort in 2017-18 with Vegas.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Gets on scoresheet with goal

    Schmidt scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Kings.

    Schmidt's go-ahead goal at 18:55 of the second period was his first point of the season. It's been a slow start for the 31-year-old defenseman, as he's added seven shots on net, nine blocked shots, four hits and a plus-1 rating in seven contests. With Josh Morrissey and Neal Pionk seeing most of the premium usage among Jets defensemen, Schmidt is unlikely to provide significant offense until his role improves.

  • Jets' Nate Schmidt: Finishes with 30-plus points

    Schmidt generated 32 points in 77 games this season, including 11 power-play points.

    After managing just 15 points with Vancouver last year, Schmidt was back over the 30-point threshold for the fourth time in his last five seasons. While the 30-year-old Minnesota native won't ever be an elite offensive contributor, he brings solid value in deeper fantasy formats.
