Schenn scored a power-play goal and added a plus-2 rating in exactly 20:00 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Rangers. Schenn potted his second goal of the young season on the power play after drawing a slashing call on Paul Carey to set up the opportunity. It's easy to forget that Schenn's only 26 since St. Louis is already his third NHL team, so don't be surprised if he's finally able to break 30 goals and 60 points after coming tantalizingly close with a combined 51 goals and 114 points over his last two seasons in Philadelphia.
Schenn recorded two assists and finished with a plus-2 rating Saturday against the Stars. The long-time Flyer now has one goal and three assists through two games with the Blues, and he's added six hits and six shots on goal. It's clear that he has a newfound connection with winger Jaden Schwartz on the second line and is seemingly a perfect fit on the top power-play unit in St. Louis. Schenn was a monster on the power play for Philly last season, racking up 28 of his 55 points with the man advantage, but only one of his four points this season came on the power play, showing he's working well at even strength, too. Of course, it's a small sample size, but it's a good sign that he's been able to produce early in the season.
Schenn has been traded to the Blues, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports. Schenn is coming off another solid season for the Flyers in which he posted 25 goals and 55 points in 79 games. While his minus-13 rating isn't anything to write home about, that was more the result of the Flyers being a poor hockey club than anything else. Expect the 25-year-old to occupy a top-six position for his new club and post similar numbers to what we have seen in Philadelphia over the past several seasons.
Schenn will suit up for Canada at the 2017 IIHF World Championship, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports. Schenn will head overseas on the back of a solid campaign in which he hit the 50-point mark for the second year in a row -- his fourth straight 40-plus point season. The winger did everything he could to try to get the Flyers into the playoffs as he racked up six goals and seven helpers in the final 15 games of the year, but ultimately came up short.
Schenn notched assists on the first two goals of Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders and ended up plus-3. He's been cruising on offense lately, registering 10 points alongside a plus-7 rating in his last 10 contests. Still, he's had a bit of a down year, as Schenn will have to finish on a red-hot run to match last year's 59 points -- he's seven short with five games left to play -- and his rating is still minus-17, easily a career worst. That said, at just 25 years old, Schenn has a lot of quality hockey ahead of him.
