Schenn scored his second overtime winner of the season Saturday against the Rangers. Schenn has reached the 25-goal mark for the third consecutive season and is now up to 59 points in 71 games. It was a beautiful move in overtime from Schenn, who ended a 10-game goalless drought. Look for this tally to help Schenn re-discover his goal-scoring touch, as he should be a key producer during the final playoff push.
Schenn has 24 goals and a team-high 57 points through 66 games for the Blues. While he still trails Vladimir Tarasenko in goals (26), Schenn's rate puts him on pace to shatter his current career high of 59 points back in the 2015-16 campaign. Adding to his dominance on the scoresheet, Schenn has racked up 127 hits and 52 PIM -- both second on the team. While head coach Mike Yeo surely doesn't want to see one of his finest assets in the sin bin, showing a willingness to throw his body around is a sign of a true leader, especially in his first year in St. Louis.
Schenn logged one assist, five shots on goal and three hits during Tuesday's game against the Predators. Through 59 games this season, Schenn sits with 23 goals and a team-high 54 points, but he also has 108 hits -- ranked second on the team. Three other Blues players have 100 hits, but none of them have over 17 points, proving how multi-faceted Schenn's game is. Schenn is near a point-per-game pace, and even when he fails to notch one, his extracurricular efforts can pick up some slack in most formats.
Schenn found the back of the net twice in Thursday's 6-1 win over Colorado, with one of those goals coming on the power play. Schenn put an end to a mini-slump that saw him record just one assist without a goal over the previous four games. With 23 goals and 53 points in 56 games, the 26-year-old center's on pace to blow away his respective 2015-16 career highs of 26 and 59 in 80 games. This strong effort seemed to be spurred on by Schenn's early fight against Gabriel Landeskog, as each gentleman racked up five PIM just three seconds into the game.
Schenn fashioned one assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins. When Schenn was traded to the Blues from the Flyers, there were worries he was too reliant on the power play after accruing 28 of 55 points (50.9 percent) with the man advantage during the 2016-17 season. However, Schenn has proved the critics wrong by compiling 51 points -- 14 on the power play (27.5 percent) -- in 53 games this campaign. Of course, the Blues and fantasy owners alike would appreciate an increase in special teams production, but Schenn's current reliability in all situations places him among the league's best centers.
