As the trade deadline approached last season, rumors of the Philadelphia Flyers trading James van Riemsdyk to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Luke Schenn floated around. At the end of the day, both players remained on their respected teams.
Apparently, after the season had ended, both teams still had interest in executing this trade. On June 23, the trade occured and Luke Schenn was officially a Flyer.
Schenn, 22, will be joining his younger brother, Brayden, 20, in Philadelphia.
"It's just surreal right now. It's going to be exciting to play with my brother, that's for sure. I can't describe how cool this is." -Luke Schenn on playing with Brayden
It is now mid-August in an off-season that hasn't been so great for the Flyers, especially defensively.
It appears that Chris Pronger, who is struggling with severe post-concussion syndrome, will never re-join the Flyers defense...
