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.
Apr 8 - 2:10 AM

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.

Luke Schenn collected a minor penalty for boarding in his Kings debut on Thursday.

Schenn also had three shots on goal, but he didn't get any hits or blocked shots. He was on the ice for 15:59 minutes, including 1:39 when Los Angeles was shorthanded.
Jan 8 - 10:53 AM

Luke Schenn will make his Kings debut on Thursday night against the Maple Leafs.

The 26-year-old veteran defender has posted five points, 30 PIMs, 40 blocks, and 71 hits through 29 games with Philadelphia this season. He's also averaged 17:35 of work per, which should stay about level, if not dip a bit, as a back-end member of LA's blue line.
Jan 7 - 10:31 PM

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired Luke Schenn and Vincent Lecavalier from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Jordan Weal and a third-round pick.

The Flyers are retaining half of Schenn's contract, but that's not a big sacrifice as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer anyways. Schenn's a serviceable, but not remarkable defensive defenseman that has no value in standard fantasy leagues. He will provide the Kings with a modest boost this season, but the cost of a third-round pick, Weal, and having to carry the burden that is Lecavalier's contract for two seasons after this one is a lot just to get Schenn.
Jan 6 - 5:03 PM

Luke Schenn (lower body) will be in the Flyers lineup Saturday.

The outlook when he was injured two weeks ago, was that Schenn would miss two weeks. And he did. Schenn has five points, 28 penalty minutes, 57 hits and 29 blocks this season so he really doesn't have much in the way of fantasy value.

Luke Schenn (lower body) is healthy enough to return, but he might not on Saturday.

The Flyers might stick with the same lineup after earning a 2-0 victory over Vancouver on Thursday. Schenn has two goals and five points in 23 contests in 2015-16.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 12:19:00 PM

Flyers have announced that Luke Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier and Andrew MacDonald will be scratched tonight against the Stars.

Schenn and Lecavalier are both dealing with their respective injuries, while MacDonald will sit for the second consecutive game. MacDonald was recently recalled from the minors but has no fantasy value.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 08:37:00 PM

Accoding to Flyers GM Ron Hextall, Luke Schenn will miss two weeks with a lower body injury sustained on Saturday.

Through 23 games thus far Schenn has accumulated five points, 28 PIMs, 29 blocks, and 57 hits. If you're in a reverse league, he'd at least make a nice depth defender.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 02:36:00 PM

Luke Schenn injured his ankle late in the third period Saturday and did not return.

Schenn apparently turned his ankle when hit by the Blue Jackets Michael Chaput. He will be evaluated further on Sunday so consider him day-to-day for now. Schenn has two goals and five points with 28 penalty minutes in 23 games but 17 minutes came in one game. He has no real fantasy value except in the deepest of pools.
