For a player with nine NHL games under his belt, Brayden Schenn carried a gargantuan cap hit of $3.11 million heading into this season. That has apparently changed. Despite the fact that his cap hit still appears as $3.11 million on capgeek.com and nhlnumbers.com, multiple sources believe that one of the most significant bonuses in Schenn’s contracts calls for a payout of $1.41 million if he were to remain on an NHL roster for the entire season.

The Flyers have left a roster spot open for him.
Schenn has dazzled with seven points in three games for the Phantoms, including a hat trick in his second game.
The Flyers are currently carrying 22 players on their acti...

With Ilya Bryzgalov coming to Philadelphia to be the team’s starting goaltender, many wondered what the Flyers how the team would handle 23-year old Sergei Bobrovsky.
