Schultz has gone from being a superstar with the University of Wisconsin to excelling at the AHL-level without missing a beat. He already has six goals and 12 points in just seven games with the Oklahoma City Barons, which made him a worthy choice for the AHL’s Player of the Month award.
Meanwhile, Mikael Granlund was selected as the AHL Rookie of the Month after scoring three goals and 10 points in seven games with the Houston Aeros.
What’s interesting is that Schultz is an AHL rookie, but he missed out on that award despite being named the league’s top player. Regardless, Granlund has been great so far.
Lastly, Curtis McElhinney had a 5-1-0 record, 1.51 GAA, and .949 save percentage in six contests with the Springfield Falcons en route to being selected as the AHL Goaltender of the Month.
McElhinney inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the 2012-13 campaign.
