The Lightning recalled Schenn from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.
Victor Hedman is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against New Jersey due to a lower-body injury, so Schenn will join the team as an insurance policy. He'll be returned to the minors as soon as Hedman is cleared to play.
Schenn was placed on waivers by Tampa Bay on Monday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Schenn was no doubt hoping to avoid time in the minors this season after logging 29 games in the AHL last year. Unfortunately, the 2008 fifth-overall pick couldn't secure a spot on the 23-man roster and appears destined for the minors again, barring a waiver claim. The blueliner's modest $700,00 salary and 734 games of NHL experience could get him a look from some of the league's other clubs.
Schenn signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with Tampa Bay on Monday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Schenn played in a mere 26 games for Vancouver and Arizona last season and failed to record a goal for the first time in his NHL career. The blueliner could find minutes a little easier to come by with the Lightning, though he shouldn't be expected to reach the 20-point mark, which he hasn't done since 2011-12 when he was with Toronto.
Schenn is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Lightning when free agency begins, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Schenn played in 18 games for the Canucks in 2018, registering two points and two assists over that stretch. Assuming the deal becomes official, Schenn would likely compete for playing time with Erik Cernak and Jan Rutta
Schenn picked up an assist during Thursday's victory over the Kings.
It was just Schenn's second point of the season, as he's only appeared in 22 games between Anaheim and Vancouver. The points will be a rare occurrence, as Schenn's value is purely in hits. He's racked up 88 of those, averaging exactly four per game.
Schenn delivered a career-high 12 hits in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Schenn's heavy performance is the 35th such game since 2005-06. He added two PIM and two blocked shots in the game. He only has a single assist to go with 77 hits in 20 contests this season.
Schenn drew an assist on Loui Eriksson's goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win against Toronto.
The fifth overall selection in 2008 has not had the NHL career many felt he was destined for, as Wednesday saw Schenn record his first point of 2018-19. The 29-year-old is not ownable in any format.
The Canucks recalled Schenn from AHL Utica on Friday.
With Chris Tanev (leg) landing on injured reserve, the Canucks have summoned the services of another defenseman ahead of Saturday's game against the Sharks. There's nothing at this point to suggest another blueliner is dealing with an injury, so Schenn could end up as a healthy scratch.
The Ducks sent Schenn and a 2019 seventh-round selection to the Canucks in exchange for Michael Del Zotto on Wednesday, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
Schenn will likely be headed for the team's minor-league affiliate, as the Canucks are expected to use the open roster spot to activate Elias Pettersson (knee) off of injured reserve. The veteran blueliner should also provide some depth along the blue line in the event one of Vancouver's current defensemen goes down with an injury. This is especially relevant with the team trading from the position Wednesday.
Schenn was placed on waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
The writing was on the wall that Schenn would be rendered expendable since he'd been a healthy scratch for nine of the past 10 games. Assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed, AHL San Diego should welcome Schenn aboard.
Schenn was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.
Ducks coach Randy Carlyle has been playing Schenn in every other game so far. If that trend continues, it will be be difficult to count on the first-round pick (Toronto, 2008) in virtually any type of fantasy league. Schenn specializes in racking up hits and blocked shots -- he finished with 219 and 105 of those, respectively, with Arizona last season -- but the Ducks don't count on him for offense, and neither should you as an owner likely craving those big point totals.
Schenn signed a one-year, $800,000 deal with the Ducks on Sunday, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.
Once upon a time, Schenn was traded for James van Riemsdyk. This offseason, JVR signed a big deal to return to the Flyers, while Schenn is hoping to just catch on with Anaheim. The 28-year-old has spent the last couple of seasons with the Coyotes, but he was held to single-digit points in both campaigns.
Schenn only posted seven points in 64 games this season, though he managed 219 hits and 105 blocked shots to reach triple-digits in said categories for the third straight year.
Schenn was only useful in fantasy leagues that issued big scoring bonuses for defensive contributions, but he was influential in helping Coyotes netminder Antti Raanta enjoy a successful debut campaign in the desert.
Schenn threw six body checks and recorded two blocked shots through 16:53 of ice time during Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to Edmonton.
After watching the previous 11 games from the press box, Schenn was involved in his return Monday. The 28-year-old defenseman has collected just five assists this season, and outside of his 166 hits and 81 blocked shots, there isn't a lot of fantasy appeal. Additionally, there's a good chance Schenn will return to being a healthy scratch once Alex Goligoski is back in the fold following the birth of his child.
Schenn recorded an assist, two shots and five hits during Monday's 3-2 overtime win against the Islanders.
Schenn has now found the scoresheet in consecutive games, but with just five assists through 47 contests for the campaign, there continues to be little fantasy appeal. In fact, outside of his contributions in the hit column (147), Schenn struggles to provide value.
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.
