Luke Schenn took a maintenance day on Thursday.
This is just an FYI as a veteran missing a day of training camp isn't particularly concerning. He had a goal and eight points in 78 contests in 2016-17. Sep 22 - 9:36 AM

Many people were surprised to see the Arizona Coyotes keep Luke Schenn in the expansion draft.

But GM John Chayka was obviously not among them. "Luke's a unique player," Chayka said. "He can play up and down your lineup. He brings an element. He brings some things that we don't necessarily have a lot of on our team. At a reasonable cap hit for a right-shot defenseman, which is even rarer in the NHL, that was kind of the decision-making process." Schenn has no fantasy value in traditional pools but is a serviceable NHL defenseman.

Luke Schenn will be ready to go on Saturday after going head first into the boards during Thursday's game.

Schenn practiced on Friday and will be in the Arizona lineup against the St. Louis Blues. Schenn has only seven assists in 66 games so he should not be in your lineup.

Luke Schenn will be scratched against the Flames on Saturday night.

Through 32 games this season he's posted two helpers with 39 PIMs, 48 blocks, and 110 hits. Not too shabby in reverse leagues.

Luke Schenn accumulated 17 minutes worth of penalties on Wednesday.

Schenn got into a fight with Edmonton's Eric Gryba after Gryba's hit on Jakob Chychrun. Schenn was handed an instigator penalty, a fighting major, and a misconduct. He also needed to get stitches above his eye. Schenn has two assists and 37 penalty minutes in 29 games this season.

Luke Schenn will play against Chicago on Saturday.

Through 14 games this season Schenn has a point with 24 blocks and 42 points. Nice rates if your pool rewards physical play.

Luke Schenn, Kevin Connuaton and Dylan Strome will each be scratched against the Bruins on Saturday.

Schenn has just a point with a fight, 21 blocks and 40 hits through 13 games so far. An impressive rate for the right kind of league. Strome meanwhile has just six games to his credit and has not yet secured a roster spot it seems.

Luke Schenn has been playing a modest role thus far for the Arizona Coyotes.

Schenn has averaged 15:49 minutes per game this season and if that continues throughout the season then it will represent a new career-low for him. Schenn hasn't registered a point, but he does have 24 hits and 10 blocked shots in eight contests this season. He joined the Coyotes over the summer by inking a two-year, $2.5 million deal.

Luke Schenn doesn't feel like he's reached his potential.

"There’s no question when I did come into the league I thought I could get to a certain level," Schenn said. "I still feel it’s in me, but I haven’t quite gotten there yet and I’m looking forward to getting there." Toronto took Schenn with the fifth overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He's gone on to appear in 566 NHL games, but isn't a top tier defenseman. He might provide a valuable role with the Coyotes this season, but his game doesn't have much of an offensive side and consequently his fantasy value is always going to be limited in standard leagues.

Luke Schenn is expected to add some toughness to Arizona's lineup this season.

Coyotes GM John Chayka is hoping that Schenn can prevent the team from being overpowered physically the way they were at times during the 2015-16 season. Schenn has amassed 409 penalty minutes and 1,773 hits over 566 career matches. Arizona is looking for the 26-year-old defender to help the team's penalty kill as well, which ranked 28th in the league last year.

Luke Schenn's two-year contract is worth $2.5 million.

Schenn will probably serve as a third-pairing defenseman for Arizona, so that's an appropriate price for his projected role. He isn't a factor in standard fantasy leagues, but he becomes more noteworthy in formats that value hits and blocked shots as evidenced by the fact that he had 234 and 106 respectively in 2015-16.

Luke Schenn has inked a two-year deal with the Arizona Coyotes.

Schenn deserves credit for being a big contributor when it comes to hits and blocked shots as he finished 2015-16 with 234 and 106 respectively. However, he doesn't look as good in terms of Corsi/Fenwick. He hasn't always been a negative Corsi/Fenwick player relative to his teammates, but that has been the case with him more often than not. He has a career minus-3.8 relative Corsi and minus-4.0 relative Fenwick over the course of his career, which suggests that his teams did a worse job of possessing the puck whenever he was on the ice compared to when he wasn't playing. All that said, this move gives Arizona some extra defensive depth and could bolster their third pairing. It's worth adding that Coyotes GM John Chayka feels Schenn "can optimize his performance here."

Luke Schenn scored and picked up an assist in the Kings 3-2 in Game 4 on Wednesday.

Both Los Angeles goals were the result long point shots off the stick of Schenn. Trevor Lewis scored the other goal on a tip-in. Schenn really filled up the stat sheet with two PIM's, four SOG, four hits and two blocks in 17:33 of ice-time. It was his first points of the series.

Luke Schenn fought Ryan Getzlaf during Thursday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.

Schenn also picked up a minor, giving him seven PIMs for the game. Through 42 games with the Kings, he's now up to 11 points and 52 PIMs.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter has been pleased with Luke Schenn's play thus far.

"I think he was a difference-maker in two of the games, for sure," Sutter said of Schenn. "He’s made really good plays to (help the team) score goals, not get noticed, get pucks back, knock guys on their (rear ends) to get pucks back." Schenn has played in five games with Los Angeles since being acquired from Philadelphia. He hasn't recorded a point yet with his new team, but that's not surprising given his role as a defensive defenseman.
