Observations:

 

February 2014 - After multiple injuries, Schroeder has finally returned to the lineup for the Canucks. He has locked up a roster spot on the Canucks and has been averaging over 15 minutes a game while earning some spot time on both the first unit powerplay and the penalty kill. Hopefully he can finish the season strong and injury-free and graduate from prospect-status. Austin Wallace

 

October 2013 – With an impressive training camp, it seemed that Schroeder had finally stepped up and secured a long-term spot on the Canucks roster. That was setback by a hairline fracture incurred while blocking a shot. He was impressive enough for Tortorella to keep him up when he returned, and he has since replaced the newly acquired in the lineup. In his first few games, he has played all the way from the second line to the fourth line while earning good reviews from John Tortorella. Monitor his usage over the next few weeks, as he may end up being their second line centre when Kesler moves up with Henrik Sedin. Austin Wallace


June 2013 – With a new coach coming to the organization and the team needing to fill voids with cheaper cap players, the opportunity for Schroeder is rather large for the upcoming season. Currently he sits as a RFA, but after nine points in 31 games last year for the Canucks, he has shown he can hang with the big boys and is likely to be resigned for a year or two at under a million. He would likely slot in on the third line, and hopefully build on his production numbers and work on his 43.6 faceoff winning percentage. He would not be a bad option to pick up in deep leagues as a late round option. Jason Banks

 

January 2013 – Schroeder has finally made the NHL after once being a ‘blue chip’ draftee. He is currently skating on the third line and has shown he is not out of place in three games so far. He did chip in his first NHL point vs. Anaheim. He had 19 points in 30 AHL games, which has been his best scoring rate at that level. Should he preform up to par for the Canucks in this opportunity, he may not return to the AHL, but likely play one of the wings when Ryan Kesler returns. Jason Banks


April 2012 - Schroeder dropped in the 2009 draft due to his size and apparent poor team interviews. Once considered a top-10 pick, his offensive production also dropped from 1.29 points-per-game to .76 with Minnesota of the WCHA after his draft year. With only 37 points in his first 72 games in the AHL, Schroeder noticed his offensive numbers improve modestly in 2011/12, with 21 goals and 44 points in his next 76 games. Most importantly, Schroeder's defensive game was also much improved and his development is one of reasons Vancouver could afford to trade away forward Cody Hodgson. Ryan Goddard

 

Fantasy Outlook:   B-

 

The diminutive forward has shown that he is able to overcome his limited size on the boards, and has an opportunity this year in Vancouver to create a scoring role for himself. If he doesn’t, he could be destined for a career as a 2nd-3rd line tweener, with his floor being Andrew Ebbett.
