Blink and you might have missed Brayden Schenn in the Flyers lineup so far this season. The key piece to the Mike Richards deal, who just joined the Flyers 4 games ago, suffered a broken foot against the Canadiens on Wednesday and will miss 4-6 weeks. The Flyers placed him on LTIR and called up forward Zac Rinaldo and defenseman Erik Gustafsson.
It is the second injury of the season for Schenn, who had to start the season with the Phantoms because he was recovering from an injured shoulder. He played in only 4 games for the Flyers and didn't register a point and was a -5. While this is certainly a rocky start to his Flyers career, Schenn is just 20 and there is no reason to expect that he won't develop into a tremendous two-way threat.
The Flyers were awful last night against the Canadiens so a little shake-up of the roster might be in order. Putting Schenn on LTIR allows the Flyers to keep Matt Walker on the roster for now, though I would expect him to be dumped to the minors the moment Gustafsson shows that he can hang in the NHL.
