The Flyers announced on Monday they have re-signed forward Brayden Schenn to a multi-year deal. The terms and length of the deal were not disclosed.
New Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said from the very beginning that retaining Brayden Schenn was the team's top priority for the offseason. Hextall was in the Los Angeles Kings front office when they drafted Schenn with the fifth overall pick in the 2009 NHL draft.
Schenn, who turns 23 in August, is coming off his best season as a professional setting career highs in goals (20), assists (21), points (41), game-winning goals (6) and games played (82). There is some concern surrounding the organization and Schenn's return as he is a natural center who is not nearly as productive out on the wing. The same can be said for Vinny Lecavalier who is signed through 2018 with a no-movement clause. Where will Schenn play? That's a question for the coaching staff.
