More About Brayden Schenn
Though Philadelphia Flyers fans are reeling over the unexpected loss of captain Mike Richards via trade to the Los Angeles Kings, they do have at least one reason to be optimistic about the future.
The key component of the Richards’ deal was former first round draft pick Brayden Schenn. Brayden, the younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Luke Schenn has been a star in the WHL for four seasons, first as a member of the Brandon Wheat Kings and later as part of the Saskatoon Blades where he averaged nearly two points a game.
However, he really established his legend at the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships. After first tying Mario Lemieux’s and Simon Gagne’s shared record (for a Canadian player) by scoring 4 goals in a single game, Schenn went on to record 18 points total. That number tied the record set way back in 1977 by Dale McCourt for the most in a single World Junior tournament.
From that point Schenn went from being a nice prospect to a player who had superstar potential. He acquitted himself well during a brief stint in the AHL with the Manchester Monarchs, earning 7 points in 7 games, and even enjoyed a short call-up to the Los Angeles Kings.
It is too early to say definitively if the Flyers made a good deal in giving up their captain to land Schenn, but if he can continue to show the talent he displayed in junior then there is every reason for Flyers’ fans to get excited about the future.
