Schenn compiled 28 goals and 70 points -- both career highs -- in 82 games this season. After being traded from Philly to St. Louis, Schenn found immediate chemistry with winger Jaden Schwartz, and the two often were placed on a line with natural goal scorer Vladimir Tarasenko to form a scary top line. Before the season, it was speculated that Schenn's game was geared towards the power play and he would struggle at even strength, but the 26-year-old pivot only had 19 points on the man advantage this campaign. To add to his diversified play, Schenn dished out 154 hits, ranking second on the Blues and proving himself a leader on this team with two years left on his contract.
Schenn potted his 28th goal to complement a power-play assist Saturday, but the Blues lost to the Avalanche 5-2 at home and were eliminated from playoff contention. The Blues' first line was in a state of disarray as star winger Vladimir Tarasenko (undisclosed) was injured in the first period, plus Schenn and Jayden Schwartz posted a minus-3 rating despite recording three points apiece. Schenn's counter-attack included a game-high seven shots on goal, but the Blues were unable to tame the likes of Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan Mackinnon, who combined for four points to extend Colorado's 2017-18 campaign. While it was obviously an unfortunate outcome for Schenn, he should be proud of the fact he sailed to career highs in goals (28) -- including a whopping eight game-winners -- assists (42) and shots (210). Look for him to be selected in fantasy drafts after the elite bunch is chosen this fall.
Schenn lit the lamp and added a helper in a 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks on Wednesday. Schenn already had a career-high number of points, but he's added to that total giving him 67. However, he also now has set a new personal best for goals in a season with 27. The move from Philadelphia to St. Louis has worked out for the 26-year-old, and he is primed to center the Blues' top line next season.
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.
