BLOG: Nick Schultz traded to Columbus

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers have traded defenceman Nick Schultz to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a 5th round pick.

Schultz was originally drafted in the 2nd round, 33rd overall, of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild. Schultz has played three seasons with the Oilers. He played in 60 games this season, finishing with four assists and 24 penalty minutes.

With Schultz gone, the Oilers have just five healthy defencemen on their roster. Philip Larsen cleared waivers this week, Corey Potter was claimed by Boston this morning and Anton Belov is out a couple of weeks with a partially torn oblique.
