Observations

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
