History

2009-10: Brayden Schenn posted 34 goals and 65 assists in 59 games with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL. In the playoffs, he posted 8 goals and 11 assists in 15 games. Schenn made his NHL debut with the Kings on November 26th, where he logged 19 shifts and 12:31 in ice time.

2010-11: Schenn opened the season with the Los Angeles Kings, appearing in eight games before being returned to Brandon (WHL). He had 2 assists and was minus-one, averaging 11 minutes of ice time with Los Angeles. Schenn joined the Kings' AHL Manchester for the last seven games of the season, scoring 3 goals with 4 assists, and was plus-three with 4 penalty minutes. In five AHL playoff games he scored 1 goal with 3 assists and was plus-two. Schenn played in two games with Brandon and scored 1 goal with 3 assists before joining Canada for the 2011 U20 World Junior Championships. He led all scorers while playing for the silver-medal winning squad. Schenn scored 8 goals with 10 assists and was plus-10 in seven games before suffering a separated shoulder. He finished the WHL season with Saskatoon after a trade deadline deal. Once healthy, he played in 27 games for the Blades and scored 21 goals with 32 assists and was plus-18 with 23 penalty minutes. In ten playoff games he scored 6 goals with 5 assists and was minus-seven with 14 penalty minutes. Schenn was acquired by Philadelphia from the Los Angeles Kings in a multi-player trade in June 2011.

2011-12: Limited to six games in the early part of the season due to a pre-season shoulder injury and then a broken foot, Schenn joined the Flyers for good in late December. After a fast start, which included a goal against the Rangers in the Winter Classic, Schenn proved to be a streaky scorer for the Flyers, going one nine-game stretch in March without a point, but re-emerging as a key offensive threat in the playoffs. Schenn scored 12 goals with 6 assists and was minus-seven with 34 penalty minutes in 54 regular season games. He had 3 goals with 6 assists, finishing minus-three, in 11 playoff games as Philadelphia advanced to the second round. Schenn skated in seven AHL games with Adirondack during rehab assignments and scored 6 goals with 6 assists.

 

Talent Analysis

A smooth skater with good acceleration, Schenn demonstrates a knack for finding open ice. He does not hesitate to rough things up and has the size to dominate in traffic. He is an above-average passer of the puck.

 

Future

Schenn is still developing, but has the look of player destined to play in the NHL for several years to come.

When is an NHL player no longer an NHL prospect? For the NHL, it is after the player has appeared in 25 games in one NHL season. At Hockey's Future, though, we stretch that number to 65 cumulative games since very few players are truly NHL material after 25 games in a single season.

Below are the regular season grades for all five teams in the Atlantic Division. Team grades were based on whether or not a team met the expectations that were generally expected of them in training camp, meaning a team that is rebuilding but managed to sneak into the playoffs would probably get a higher grade than an established cup-contender who underachieved for much of the season.

For the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, the playoffs appear to have unofficially started yesterday afternoon when the Flyers beat the Penguins 6-4 in a physical, back-and-forth matchup.

As the regular season winds down, the Penguins and Flyers remain ranked fourth and fifth respectively in the Eastern Conference, and consequently are all but guaranteed to face each other in the first round of the playoffs. This fact not lost on either team yesterday as both teams finished every check and seemed to be pushing and shoving after each whistle.
