News

Schultz (concussion) is closing in on a Saturday return, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. "I skated pretty hard the past couple of days by myself, trying to stay in game shape," Schultz noted. "I still have a couple of more steps. I'm hopeful I can be ready for Saturday. Hopefully I'll get cleared and practice Friday, and be ready for the game. We'll see what happens."

Impact

With two of Pittsburgh's top-four defenders sidelined, Schultz's return can't come soon enough. While it's difficult to predict an exact comeback date for players suffering from concussion, there's a decent chance he'll play Saturday if he joins the team for Friday's practice. Stay tuned.
