Schenn (suspension) finalized a new four-year contract with the Flyers on Monday just before a scheduled arbitration hearing. Schenn, who will miss the first three games of the 2016-17 season due to an illegal check, reached career highs in both goals (26) and assists (33), as well as power-play points (22). While fans may think the contract is a little high, fantasy owners primary concern is that the 24-year-old has secured a long-term deal and can focus on producing at the rink. Given his youth, the Saskatchewan native is certainly worth considering in dynasty or keeper leagues as well as a slightly cheaper option in daily lineups.
Schenn (suspension) was tendered a qualifying offer by Philadelphia on Monday. Schenn, if he remains with the Flyers, will miss the first three games of the season while serving a suspension for a check on Capitals T.J. Oshie. Aside from that lapse, the 24-year-old was only assessed 33 PIM while racking up 59 points in 80 contests. Although he is not a flashy player, the center is consistent and worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.
Schenn has received a suspension for a charge against the Capitals' T.J. Oshie and will serve it in the first three games of his 2016-17 regular season. Schenn enters the offseason set to become a restricted free agent but the three-game suspension shouldn't have much bearing on it. It seems quite possible the Flyers will attempt to sign him in the offseason, but there's still no guarantee he will be in Philadelphia next season. Regardless, the 24-year-old is likely set for a significant pay bump following a season filled with career-highs in goals (26), assists (33) and shots on goal (178, tied for most).
Schenn will have a hearing Tuesday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an illegal check that he delivered on Washington's T.J. Oshie during the Flyers' recently-completed playoff series against the Caps. If Schenn is handed any sort of suspension by the league, he'll have to serve it at the beginning of the 2016-17 season, with the Flyers having been eliminated from the postseason Sunday.
Schenn picked up two helpers -- including one on the power play -- during Sunday's 5-2 win over the Islanders. The 24-year-old picked up his second multi-point game in the last six contests. He finished the regular season with seven points in the final eight games, and set a new career high with 59 points. Schenn has been solid for his fantasy owners all season and will look to continue that into the postseason.
