Nick Schmaltz isn’t Artem Anisimov.

Schmaltz is more of a playmaker, a speedy and skilled guy with a knack for making jaw-dropping passes. Anisimov is more of a power forward, a big body who makes his living just outside of the crease, screening goalies and banging home rebounds.

But when Schmaltz steps in between Artemi Panarin and Patrick Kane, he seems to get the same results as Anisimov — a lot of chances and a lot of goals.
