Additionally, Schultz also surpassed 300 ECHL games and 300 ECHL points, as well as 200 ECHL points.
Schultz led the ECHL in scoring with a career-high 80 points on 22 goals and a League-leading 58 assists through 71 games in 2018-19, and was third with 22 power play assists and tied for sixth with 25 power play points. Schultz was also fourth in the ECHL with a plus-39 on-ice rating. His career-year earned him ECHL MVP honors, along with the ECHL scoring title and a spot on the All-ECHL First Team. In his first season in a Cyclones uniform in 2017-18, he led the team and ranked second in ECHL scoring with 18 goals and a League-leading 57 assists for 72 points in 72 games played, earning All-ECHL Second Team honors in the process.
Hailing from Strasbourg, SK, Schultz has seen success across a multitude of leagues and levels during his 17-year career. In addition to his ECHL experience, his time in North American has been marked by 375 games of American Hockey League (AHL) experience where he amassed 112 goals and 140 assists, as well as over 160 Central Hockey League (CHL) games where he accounted for 65 goals and 133 assists.
