Blues Select Schmaltz at No. 25 Overall
PITTSBURGH – The St. Louis Blues selected defenseman Jordan Schmaltz with the 25th overall selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Schmaltz, 18, split last season between the United States Hockey League’s (USHL) Green Bay Gamblers and Sioux City Musketeers, ranking second among USHL defensemen with 41 points (10 goals, 31 assists) in 55 games.

A native of Madison, Wisconsin, Schmaltz played 46 games for Green Bay, leading the team’s defensemen in assists, points and power-play goals (five).

He added seven points (two goals, five assists) and had a plus-10 rating in 12 playoff games for the Clark Cup Champions.

He is the first player since the 1994-95 season (Scott Swanson, Omaha Lancers) to be named to the All-USHL First Team in consecutive seasons.

In 2010-11, Schmaltz had a 10-game point streak and registered 20 points in his final 13 games of the season to finish his rookie year as the USHL’s highest-scoring defenseman with 44 points (13 goals, 31 assists).

For his efforts, he was named to the 2011 USHL All-Rookie Team and All-USHL First Team.

The 6’2”, 189-pound defenseman was ranked 34th among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting and he will attend the University of North Dakota in the fall.

NHL Central Scouting's Report:

"This is the type of player everybody wants on their team because he's a puck-moving offensive defenseman who can see opportunities, spring forward and make the great pass from any situation. He loves to join in the rush and has that skating ability to sort of take the risk of taking the puck deep, and being able to get back using his skating ability."
