Observations:

February 2018-  Schmaltz has solidified his position as a top six forward, as his game has progressed at warp speed this year. He is bigger, faster and makes plays in areas he never went to before. His chemistry with both Kane and Debrincat gives the Hawks several options that they didn’t have in the past. A solid keeper in every league now. Tony Carr

December 2017- Schmaltz has fully recovered from his early season injury and has become a legitimate top six forward. Playing most nights with Patrick Kane and Artem Anisimov, Schmaltz is more of an offensive catalyst than in the past, doing all the little things that make a good player great. Trending up. Tony Carr

November 2017- An early season injury has set back what was looking like a breakout campaign. After coming into camp visibly bigger and adding some much needed speed to his game, Schmaltz looked great in the preseason and even better in the first game of the season playing alongside Patrick Kane and Ryan Hartman. Track his progress closely, he could be a steal. Tony Carr
