Like the rest of the Edmonton Oilers, the 2013-14 season didn’t get off to the best start for Justin Schultz. Admittedly, Schultz saw room for improvement at the start of the season. But as the year wore on, Schultz came around defensively to the point where there was a noticeable improvement in his game.
Schultz says that it wasn’t only him who saw personal improvements but the team improved overall in the defensive category as well. It’s a finish to the season that Schultz hopes he and the Oilers will build off of.
“Defensively, the start of the year was a little rough for me and the team but I thought as the year went on everything improved. Our team was improving. We obviously didn’t finish the way we wanted to but it was a good finish for us and hopefully we build off of that and start strong this year,” Schultz said.
The RFA has agreed to terms with the club on a one-year contract.
