Following the 2006-2007 NHL season, Nick Schultz was a restricted free agent. Schultz hoped for a long career on the Minnesota Wild roster; however, he failed to negotiate a long term deal and signed a 1-year contract for $1.85 million. Fortunately for Nick Schultz, after the 2007-08 NHL season, the Minnesota Wild agreed to a 6 year contract extension, securing his place on the team for many seasons to come.

Nick Schultz has been overshadowed by former teammates Marian Gaborik and Pavol Demitra, but with his future secured with the Wild, insiders predict that he will rise to the challenge and prove himself to be a high caliber athlete who can increase his playing time and contribute to the team’s success in upcoming seasons.
