Character

Schuldt is the first-ever three-time team captain in the history of SCSU men’s hockey during the team’s Division I era. He is a respected team leader on the ice and in the locker room. A much sought after prospective pro player, Schuldt opted to return for his senior campaign after earning All-America and Hobey Baker Top 10 status in 2017-18.

He is a team-first leader who was the driving force behind SCSU’s NCHC regular season championship in 2017-18 and has played a key role in helping SCSU transition to a new head coach in 2018-19, after the departure of previous Head Coach Bob Motzko at end of the 2017-18 season.

Schuldt’s presence on team has helped the Huskies earn a top five ranking in the latest NCAA DI team poll as of nomination time. An key example of his character is when he was asked to provide information for a potential nomination for the Hockey Humanitarian Award in 2018-19. Schuldt deferred and strongly suggested fellow teammate Jacob Benson as a better candidate for the team in 2018-19.

As of nomination time, he had played in 117 consecutive games during his college career, never missing a game in three years.

Prior to his arrival at SCSU, he volunteered often with the Special Olympics floor hockey team in Omaha in juniors and worked at the Ronald McDonald House where he would make dinner for sick kids and their families.
