WHO IS JUSTIN SCHULTZ?

Who is Justin Schultz? By now I’m sure many of you have heard of Schultz, but don’t know much about him. He was drafted 43rd overall by the Ducks in 2008, and then he played one more year in the BCJHL before heading to Wisconsin to play for the Badgers. For the past three seasons he’s…
