Schultz's debut eventful

Barons defenseman Justin Schultz, a two-time All-American at Wisconsin, is making his pro debut in Oklahoma City. He started Friday’s preseason game and drew an interference penalty 12 seconds into the game.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Schultz said. “We were both going back for the puck and our skates clipped each other and I got a penalty I guess for interference. I was in shock. It’s a good story… After the first few shifts I kind of got used to the pace.”

Schultz, though, had a solid debut. He scored a power play goal in the second period in a 4-0 win.

“It went pretty well and we still don’t have our whole lineup with Nuge (Ryan Nugent-Hopkins) and Ebs (Jordan Eberle),” Schultz said. “We still have a lot more, to show how deep this team is.”
