Ernest Cameron Schilling (born October 7, 1988), is an American professional ice hockey defenseman. He is currently playing within the Chicago Blackhawks organization of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Schilling played with his home state team, the Indiana Ice, of the United States Hockey League before committing to Miami University of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

Upon completion of his four-year collegiate career, he was signed as a free agent to a two-year entry level contract with the Washington Capitals on March 27, 2012.[1] He was then assigned to make his professional debut on an amateur try-out contract with the Capitals AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, to end the 2011–12 season.

In the first full professional season, Schilling was assigned directly to the Hershey Bears to start the 2012–13 season, due to the NHL lockout. After 54 games with the Bears recording 8 points as a defensive defenseman, Schilling received his first NHL recall by the Capitals on March 12, 2013.[2] With the Capitals suffering a rash of injuries on the blueline he made his NHL debut the same day, in a 4-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.[3]

Schilling signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on July 2, 2015 after hitting the free agency market.[4]
