Schwartz to Debut Saturday vs. Lightning

Jaden Schwartz will make his professional debut when the Blues faceoff with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday at 6 p.m.

Schwartz, the Blues' first-round draft pick (14th overall) in 2010, signed an entry-level contract on March 12.

"It's been a dream of mine to play in the NHL and I'm excited to be able to do it as a St. Louis Blue," Schwartz said in a press release. "The Blues are having a terrific season and I will do whatever they need me to do just to help out."

Schwartz, 19, led the Colorado College Tigers with 41 points, including 15 goals and 26 assists, in 30 games this season as a sophomore.

During his freshman year, the 5’10, 193-pound forward posted 47 points (17 goals, 30 assists) in 30 games leading the nation in freshman scoring average with 1.56 points per game.

The Wilcox, Saskatchewan native was originally drafted by the Blues in the first round, 14th overall, of the 2010 Entry Draft.
