Luke Schenn is a minus-six after only five games this season.
Schenn was a horrible minus-five in the Flyers second game of the season and he has been even in his last three games. He picked up his first assist of the season on Saturday but he has little value unless you play the hits and blocked shots category, in which case he has some nice value. Oct 19 - 8:33 AM

Luke Schenn was minus-five in Philadelphia's 6-4 loss on Thursday.

That brings Schenn down to just minus-six in two games. Although plus/minus isn't always a great indicator of a player's performance, it's fair to say that Schenn isn't off to a great start. "I don’t know what to say," Schenn said. "It's frustrating, but it comes to a point where there's no point to really even get mad. You pick your head up and get back to the drawing board and work hard. I felt good tonight. It's bounces, bad luck, gaps. You have to have a short memory to move on."

Bob McKenzie noted in his Insider Trading segment that the Flyers are trying to free up space for would-be rookie defensemen Samuel Morin, and Luke Schenn is chief among those on the block.

"Historically, Luke Schenn has always been available from that Philadelphia blueline," McKenzie said. Roster space is more the issue, as Chris Pronger and Kimmo Timonen will go on LTIR freeing up nearly $7M. Luke Schenn for his part will be entering his seventh season but will only turn 25 in November. He dings the cap at $3.6M this and next season, and hosts a career 48.7 CORSI with just 75 career points.

Luke Schenn is being circled as a possible defense partner for Michael Del Zotto.

"I always like a puck mover with a stay-at-home guy, but there are always games when we put two big guys together," coach Craig Berube said. The Flyers bench boss liked what he saw from pairings of Braydon Coburn with Andrew MacDonald and Mark Streit alongside Nick Grossmann from last season. Philadelphia will miss Kimmo Timonen if he's unable to play due to blood clots.

Philadelphia hockey columnist Frank Seravalli says Luke Schenn was the Flyers' best defenseman in their first-round playoff series against the New York Rangers.

"The most glaring fact from the seven-game series (won by the Rangers) remains the most startling: the Flyers' best defenseman was . . . drumroll, please . . . Luke Schenn," Seravalli writes.

Luke Schenn's second period goal was the winner as the Flyers beat the Rangers 4-2 Sunday.

It was only his second postseason appearance as Schenn spent the first four seasons of his career playing for Toronto and was dealt to the Flyers in the 2012 off-season. This season was the first time his team had played in the playoffs and he picked up his first goal in only his second playoff game. "It's nice," Schenn said. "Obviously, it's nice to contribute offensively. I try to take care of the D zone first, but it was nice to contribute. In playoffs, it doesn't matter who does it. Everyone's got to chip in."

Luke Schenn is eager to make his playoffs debut.

Schenn has played in 422 NHL games without making a single postseason appearance. There's a good chance he will end that streak in the near future though. "In Toronto for a few years there, I hate to say it, but you were pretty much out of it from the All-Star break or the Olympic break," Schenn said. "After the break, it was always about playing for a job for next year or trying to play the spoiler. It's completely different, trying to help a team get in. This is a lot more exciting. It's real exciting to come to the rink every day." He doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues, but that's because he's more of a defensive defenseman.
Mar 20 - 10:37 AM

Luke Schenn was plus-two with six hits on Saturday and is now a plus-10 in his last six games.

The streak has pushed Schenn into plus territory on the season as he is plus-seven. Schenn has three goals and seven points but his fantasy value lies in hits as he is eighth in the NHL with 181.
Feb 9 - 8:04 AM

Luke Schenn had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 shootout loss on Monday.

Schenn snapped a 23-game point drought. He's more of a defensive defenseman, but even by his standards, that's a long time to go without a single point. Perhaps he'll start to heat up now that that slump is over.

Luke Schenn was the unlikely offensive leader for the Flyers in Monday's 5-4 shootout loss to Columbus.

Schenn registered a goal and an assist in the contest to triple his season total to a whopping three points in 27 games. Michael Raffl, Jakub Voracek and Kimmo Timonen also contributed for Philadelphia in the losing effort.

Luke Schenn will spend Tuesday's game in the press box.

"It's a little rare," Schenn said. "I don't like being in this situation. But at the same time, I am not losing any confidence because of it." Schenn is a defensive defenseman with little to no fantasy value in standard leagues.

Defenseman Luke Schenn scored his first goal of the young season as he and the Philadelphia Flyers were edged 2-1 by the Hurricanes in Carolina Sunday.

Schenn scored at 3:01 into the second period when he skated around Carolina's Drayson Bowman and snapped the puck above goalie Anton Khudobin's left shoulder.

Luke Schenn registered eight hits and finished with a plus-3 rating in Philadelphia's 5-2 win over Boston Tuesday night.

He also added an assist. Schenn has 11 points and a plus-2 rating on the year. Schenn still leads all NHL defenders with 173 hits. He is the only Flyers defenseman who has stayed healthy from the start of the year.

Luke Schenn logged a career-high 33:25 of ice time in Monday's win over Montreal.

He got some extra time with Kent Huskins leaving the game early due to a concussion and Kurtis Foster spending considerable time in the penalty box. Schenn ended up with an assist, five hits, four blocks and a minus-1 rating in Philadelphia's 7-3 win. He leads all NHL defensemen with 157 hits this season and has 10 points in 41 games.

Despite missing about seven minutes in Saturday's contest, Luke Schenn played a team-high 24 minutes, 54 seconds in the loss.

Schenn returned to the ice late in the second period after being struck in the face by the puck. When blocking Tobias' shot, Schenn said he felt the puck "went right through my helmet. It seemed like everyone was on the other side of the ice and they moved over to [Enstrom], and he hit a wide-open lane. He wound up, and I just tried to get in front of him and block the shot. I'm lucky. It could have been a lot worse." Schenn, who has been the Flyers' best defenseman lately is worth a look in leagues that use hits and blocked shots as scoring categories. He had a team-high five shots and three blocked shots in the loss Saturday.
