Schultz is not an undrafted "late bloomer" like you seem to think. He was taken 43rd overall in 2008, and took advantage of a CBA loophole that allowed him to become a UFA instead of signing with Anaheim (the team who drafted him).
He was a finalist for the Hobey Baker the last two years, winning defender of the year and 1st team WCHA both years, and 1st team All-America last season. He's not a player who was unknown up until this last year, he's been a legitimate top NHL prospect for 3-4 years now.
