February 2023 – Schwindt is a very intriguing prospect who isn’t just known for his points. He is a big body who is very versatile as he can play the wing and centre. He has been focusing a bit more on his defensive side of the puck and trying to be a better two-way player. He has 26 points this season and keeps wanting to improve on his overall game, especially his skating, which still holds him back. In the NHL, it is a very fast-paced game, and if Schwindt keeps improving his skating, he will become that much better and more dominant with such a big frame. The overall growth he has taken, though, has been very impressive, as he does have some potential to be a legit NHL player one day. Carson Klein

July 2022 – Schwindt has been dealt to the Calgary Flames as part of the blockbuster deal that sent Jonathan Huberdeau and Mackenzie Weegar to Calgary in exchange for Matthew Tkachuk. He is likely to begin the year in AHL, with a definite possibility of earning a few cups of coffee during the 2022-23 campaign. Dave Hall

June 2022 – Schwindt was the most productive Panthers prospect on their AHL affiliate in 2022-23 and earned a three-game call-up at the end of the season. He is a responsible, two-way forward with upside who will make a push in training camp for a full-time NHL job. He is on track to become a versatile bottom-six type for Florida. Ben Gehrels

December 2020 – Schwindt has been invited to Team Canadas WJC camp and will look to earn his first stint on the National level. Given the camp’s high-caliber roster, his work is certainly cut out for him. Even with a solid camp under his belt, he will likely fall short this year. Of course, things could change if a few names are recalled to their respected NHL camps. The Ontario native is ready to take on his fourth season with the Mississauga Steelhead, where he has amassed 138 points through 191 games. Dave Hall


April 2020 – Schwindt had a fantastic 2019-2020 season, returning to the OHL for his draft +1 year, where he totaled 71 points (28 goals, 43 assists) in 57 games played. Fantasy owners will need to wait on him a bit, as he’ll be returning to the OHL in 2020-21 before likely playing two seasons in the AHL (Florida tends to REALLY overcook their prospects). But, he’s a valuable asset to have for the future. Keith Fries

June 2019: Selected somewhat surprisingly in the third round by the Florida Panthers, Schwindt was able to put together a strong draft year. Being a versatile member of the Mississauga Steelheads this season, the 6’2” center quickly rose up the lineup near the end of the season pilling up 49 points (19 goals and 30 assists) in 68 games, almost half of which coming in the final two months of the season. Schwindt was relied on to take most of the defensive zone faceoffs, while also manning the first unit of the penalty kill. Schwindt will presumably return to Mississauga next season taking on the role of #1 center. Maxime Tellier
