Done for night Schmaltz (undisclosed) left and will not return to Thursday's exhibition contest against the Golden Knights, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
Impact Schmaltz was on the receiving end of a heavy check to the upper-body area from Vegas' Ryan Reaves in the second period. The 2014 first-round pick is in the midst of a breakout campaign, supplying 11 goals and 34 assists across 70 games. With Schmaltz exiting, Barrett Hayton, who was the 13th forward dressed for the contest, assumed his role on the second line and the power play. Expect the team to provide an update on Schmaltz's status ahead of Sunday's matchup against Nashville.
