Schenn sat out the Flyers last game because of the flu but he will be back in the lineup tonight when the Flyers take on the Devils. Schenn is a solid defensive defenseman, so he is a much more useful hockey player than he is fantasy player.
The Star’s Kevin McGran reports that the deal is for five years and $18 million, with an annual cap hit of about $3.5 million.
Schenn should continue his rugged play, hitting everything that moves. While he is not known for his offensive side, the 21-year-old has improved his counting stats in each of his three seasons. If your league format counts hits, blocked shots or shots on goal, Schenn should have some niche fantasy hockey value.
