Schenn recorded one hit in 14:20 of ice time during Saturday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh. Schenn is currently riding a 30-game pointless streak that dates back to Oct. 17, which is surprising since he's notched over 10 points every season but one since he entered the league in 2008-09. Still, Schenn has played in every game thus far while averaging 15:52 of ice time, so it seems likely he'll break the streak sooner rather than later.
Schenn received a five-minute major penalty for fighting during Monday's 3-2 loss to Washington. With just two assists and 15 shots through 16 games, Schenn probably shouldn't be relied on in the majority of fantasy settings. Outside of chipping in PIM and hits, the 27-year-old veteran offers very little value.
Schenn has two assists, seven shots, 12 hits and eight blocked shots while averaging 12:35 of ice time through the first five games of the season. Fantasy owners should know what they're getting from Schenn at this stage of his career. He moves the needle in the hits, blocked shots and PIM columns, but the 27-year-old defenseman shouldn't be counted on for offensive production. As a result, his fantasy value is limited to deep settings.
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.
