2019 Fantasy Outlook
Schmaltz began the year with 11 points in 23 games for the Blackhawks before being flipped to the Coyotes for Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini. The deal proved to be mutually beneficial, with Schmaltz adding 14 points in 17 contests before his season ended with an upper-body injury. The Coyotes were pleased with the 23-year-old forward, bestowing him with a seven-year contract extension. Schmaltz is versatile, as he's able to line up at center or on the wing. He will probably play on the same line as either the newly-acquired Phil Kessel or burgeoning star Clayton Keller -- he played with the latter prior to his injury last year. He's had some issues staying healthy in his first three seasons, but if he can stay out of the trainer's room, he could post 20 goals and 50 points while featuring on the power play.

Scores pair in loss

Schmaltz scored twice and fired three shots on goal in Monday's 4-2 loss to Winnipeg.
ANALYSIS
Schmaltz tallied a beauty to open the scoring with 4:10 left in the first period, walking Winnipeg defenseman Neal Pionk and chipping it past Connor Hellebuyck for his 10th goal of the year. He added No. 11 just over four minutes later, depositing a Jason Demers rebound with two seconds left on the clock. More well known for his slick playmaking abilities and his preference to dish the puck, Schmaltz's two-goal performance was his first of the season. The 24-year-old has 45 points in 70 games this season, his first full year with the Coyotes.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Schmaltz broke out during his sophomore campaign in 2017-18, racking up career highs in goals (21), assists (31), shots on net (118) and average ice time (18:14). The 2014 first-round pick will return to his role skating on the second line and top power-play unit in 2018-19, and he should only continue to improve during his third full NHL season. Schmaltz will likely have two high-end scoring threats flanking him in Alex Debrincat and Patrick Kane this campaign, and he could approach the 65-point mark as a result, making him a player fantasy owners will want to target when assembling their forward group during this year's drafts.
Schmaltz showed flashes of impressive talent in his first taste of NHL action last season, finishing with 28 points (six goals, 22 assists) in 61 games with Chicago. However, the 21-year-old winger only logged 66 shots on goal over that span, so if he exhibits more willingness to fire the puck on net in 2017-18, it wouldn't be surprising to see his goal total climb significantly this season. The 2014 first-round pick has the skill to skate in a top-six role, but the Blackhawks may prefer to have him center their third line behind Jonathan Toews and Artem Anisimov, a role that would cap his offensive upside. Either way, the Wisconsin native is locked in as a member of Chicago’s second power-play unit, which should provide him with plenty of opportunities to set up man-advantage goals. Schmaltz may be a fringe fantasy asset right now, but if he continues to improve as a two-way player in 2017-18, it wouldn't be surprising to see him have a major breakout in 2018-19.
