It’s not the same as dominating competition on the highest level, but Justin Schultz is doing his part to show why teams were clamoring to sign him during the summer.

The Edmonton Oilers’ prospect scored two power-play goals for the Oklahoma City Barons in a 4-2 win against the Texas Stars today, pushing his AHL point total to 12 in seven games.

He’s had at least one point in all seven contests, too.

Oh yeah, those 12 points also leads the entire AHL … and he’s a defenseman.

Check out the Schultz-heavy highlights from the game in the video below.

It’s the kind of start that inspires some big-time excitement, including this amusing bit from Sportsnet’s Chris Nichols.

Pretty much.

    We’ll see if he can keep this up over time, whether it translates at the next level, etc.

    Signed,

    Jealous Canucks Fan.

      The extra speed and size of the NHL will make a difference, it’ll just be interesting to see how much.

    I hope this stupid ass kid gets taken out with huge hit for being such a prick in the offseason.
