Nov 19 - 5:19 PM

Luke Schenn (shoulder) took part in Monday's morning skate.

Schenn was wearing a no-contact jersey though. He might be back on Wednesday, but we wouldn't count on that.
Nov 17 - 3:52 PM

Luke Schenn (shoulder) could play as early as Wednesday although Thursday seems more likely.

This is good news for the Flyers as Schenn was originally scheduled to return at the end of the month. He has two points in 14 games this season.
Nov 16 - 8:05 AM

Luke Schenn (shoulder) skated on his own on Wednesday.

Schenn is doing better than anticipated, according to Flyers GM Ron Hextall. That being said, Schenn shouldn't be counted on to return before the end of the week.
Nov 13 - 5:11 AM

Luke Schenn will miss two weeks with a shoulder injury.

Schenn went into the boards awkwardly after being hit by Nathan MacKinnon on Saturday. The 25-year-old has two points in 14 games this season.
Nov 9 - 1:53 PM

Luke Schenn suffered a shoulder injury during the first period Saturday and did not return.

Schenn was crosschecked by the Avs sophomore sensation Nathan MacKinnon into the boards, an infraction that cost MacKinnon five in the sin bin for boarding as the Flyers managed to score once during the power play. Consider him day-to-day for now until there is an update on his status but the good news is that he left the arena without a brace or wrap.
Nov 9 - 7:53 AM

Luke Schenn scored a goal in Philadelphia's 4-1 win on Tuesday.

It was Schenn's 100th career point in 448 games. He's never developed into much of an offensive threat and that makes him a non-factor in standard leagues. He does contribute in leagues that value hits and blocked shots though.
Nov 5 - 10:57 AM

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."
Oct 10 - 5:44 PM

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.
Oct 2 - 9:26 PM

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.
Aug 8 - 10:05 AM

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.
May 3 - 10:58 AM

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."
Apr 21 - 8:22 AM

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.
