Observations

November 2019 – Schmid has had a bit of a rough month with the Omaha Lancers but is still 2-2-1 with a 3.01 goals-against average and .891 save percentage. Omaha did stumble out of the gates a bit to start the season much like last year but Schmid looked good in his first three starts. Schmid has been out for almost two weeks with an undisclosed injury. Updates will come as conditions warrant. Chris Wassel

April 2019 – Schmid continues to impress and will continue to work in Omaha. He finished the season with Omaha at .500 with a 2.18 goals-against average and .926 save percentage. Those are impressive totals for a player transitioning from Europe to North America. Schmidt tailed off a bit in April but still had a career year. He learned patience is truly best on and off the ice. Chris Wassel 

March 2019 – Schmid bounced around a bit as he headed to North America this year. However, he has found a home with the Omaha Lancers. Omaha is a .500 team with Schmid which is surprising but the goalie’s numbers are even more shocking. He has a 2.03 goals-against average and .930 save percentage in 28 appearances. His 12-9-2 record with two shutouts offers a glimpse into the distant future for New Jersey. Just think, Schmid does not turn 19 until May. Chris Wassel
