Schenn registered an assist, two blocked shots and a minor penalty during Sunday's loss to Carolina. With just seven assists this year, Schenn's fantasy value lies entirely in his solid secondary numbers. The bruising defenseman has 68 PIM, 219 hits and 96 blocked shots, which are helpful peripheral numbers in deeper leagues. Additionally, you know what you're getting with Schenn. You just can't expect any offensive production and have to be willing to stomach a hit in the plus-minus column.
Schenn collected two assists in a 5-0 road win over Calgary on Monday. He also skated to a plus-4. The rearguard getting on the scoresheet is a rare sight, as he now has just five assists (and no goals) in 50 games and had gone 12 contests without an offensive contribution prior to Monday. His offensive contributions make him unworthy of fantasy ownership in the majority of formats, but Schenn's 183 hits keep him relevant in the deepest settings.
Schenn tallied a game-high six hits over 17:25 of ice time in Saturday's 3-0 loss against the Ducks. Schenn has done next to nothing offensively, but he has logged 140 hits over 38 games to rank second in the Western Conference and in the top 5 in the NHL. His body checks and occasional blocked shots make him worth a roster spot in deeper formats.
Schenn was credited with a game-high five body checks over 12:52 of ice time during Friday's game against the Islanders. It was the least playing time Schenn has received all season, but he now has 11 hits over his past two games. However, he's failed to register a point through the first four outings of the year, and he's now with his fourth organization in six years. His fantasy value is tied to penalty minutes, body checks and blocked shots, and his ownership should be limited to formats including those statistics.
Schenn signed a two-year, $2.5 million contract with the Coyotes on Saturday. Schenn appeared in 29 games with the Flyers last season, tallying five points (two goals, three assists) while registering a minus-7 rating, before being traded to the Kings in January, where he added 11 points (two goals, nine assists) with a plus-5 rating over 43 games. The 6-foot-3 26-year-old blueliner will likely slot into a bottom-pairing role with his new club in 2016-17, and won't be worth owning in the majority of fantasy leagues due to his lack of offensive upside.
