Nate Schmidt eager to get going at campAugust 13, 2019 | 12:06 PM
Nate Schmidt didn't like the way 2018-19 season started and ended, but he is looking forward to this campaign.
"To be with our guys all year, especially with a lot to prove, I know the way it ended last year left a lot of sour tastes in our mouth, and that's not just for the playoffs but that's the whole year," Schmidt said. "To be able to begin camp knowing I'm not going away for a month and a half is going to be really nice for us to dial in." Schmidt was suspended for the first 20 games of the 2018-19 season for violating the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. He skated in 61 games and he produced 30 points.
