Schenn woke up from a three-game skid with his 15th goal of the year Thursday in a 5-1 win over Buffalo. Being the second Flyer tally of the game, it held up as the winning goal. Schenn's now hit the 30-point mark, leaving him on pace to approximately match last season's career-high 48 -- that's not bad in leagues that count his plentiful hits, but it has to qualify as a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners who hoped to see him take a leap forward in productivity this year.
Schenn delivered two more points on the power play Tuesday against Montreal, tallying a goal and an assist. The 24-year-old has racked up three goals and six points in the last four games now, and all of them have come on the man advantage. Schenn's also hit the 30-point mark, and with the Flyers' offensive attack looking a lot better lately, he could be on his way to finally clearing 50 for the first time in his career. Fantasy owners in leagues that count hits have to be pleased that he's continued contributing on that front as well.
Schenn collected his twelfth goal of the season -- this one on a powerplay -- in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win in Washington. Schenn was clearly motivated by our last post, which suggested his points streak would end in Washington. It didn't, and it now stands at three games. With 26 points on the season, he's now sniffing at a career year and 45-50 points -- not bad for someone who likely went overlooked by many owners. He'll face the Canadiens after the All Star hiatus, a team he's already bruised for a goal and two assists.
Schenn collected an assist -- his third in his last two games -- in a 3-2 loss to the Bruins. The departure of his brother, Luke, to LA doesn't seem to have fazed the younger Schenn. He's produced as per his usual, spotty self since the trade. That includes not having produced a point streak longer than three games all season. And with the Flyers heading to Washington, the league-leaders in stinginess, on Wednesday, don't expect this current point streak to extend much further.
Schenn opened the scoring Thursday with a power-play goal and later added an assist on the man advantage in a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh. Just like last weekend against the Rangers, Schenn got the Flyers off to a good start with a first-period goal, only to end up in the loss column. While Schenn's combination of points and hits plays in specialty formats, we're still waiting for him to start producing the sort of offense that's expected from a No. 5 overall pick (2009). He's been doing it recently -- nine points in his last nine games, with four of those on the power play -- but we'll need to see Schenn keep it up before recommending him in shallower leagues.
