Brayden Schenn: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Brayden Schenn saw his minutes increase last year, and surpassed his 2011-12 numbers in seven fewer games. While he has typically played center for the Flyers, the addition of Vincent Lecavalier could see Brayden Schenn slide over to wing alongside Lecavalier. If that's the case, he could see more opportunities to collect goals and assists. He's still young at 21, so he could be an asset in later rounds, especially in keeper leagues.
Schenn is coming off a solid post-season performance that produced nine points in 11 games. Itís clear the coaching staff has confidence in him and he should finally see a full NHL season. Schenn had 18 regular season points in 54 games. These numbers are not gaudy to those in standard, single-season leagues, but, if Schenn shows up like he did in the playoffs, he could be a real asset, especially in keeper leagues. Schenn is certainly one of the top prospects in the NHL and could see more top-six minutes with Jaromir Jagr now in Dallas.
Schenn has played in just nine games at the NHL level over the past two seasons, but figures to be given a chance to play a big part of the Flyers' season after the departure of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards. The 20-year-old earned rave reviews this summer at the Flyers' developmental camp. It may take him awhile to acclimate himself, but the Flyers are obviously very high on the youngster.
Schenn made his NHL debut last year thanks to some short-term injuries but didn't hit the scoresheet in his lone game for the Kings. He had another nice season in the WHL, posting 99 points (34G, 65A) in just 59 games. He could press for ice time this training camp but it's hard to imagine he'll make the jump from the WHL to the NHL without a little seasoning for the Monarchs in the AHL.
The Kings have plenty of centermen already on the roster so Schenn figures to return to Brandon of the WHL until his eligibility runs out. It remains to be seen if he's got the offensive chops to center a top line down the road but he's got plenty of time to develop.
