Philadelphia Flyers’ Player of the Week: Brayden Schenn
The Philadelphia Flyers returned to their home ice after a week on the road with two wins and a shootout loss under their belts. One player whom really showed up to help the Flyers this week was forward Brayden Schenn.
Schenn is currently leading the team with 12 points, so he has been pretty successful thus far, despite the team’s struggles. Schenn didn’t get on board in their loss against the Winnipeg Jets, but he was extremely helpful last Wednesday as he lead the team to victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins having logged the only two goals for the Flyers. It was all the team needed to take the win, and Schenn had achieved it. Schenn was also present on the scoreboard in the team’s rout against the Ottawa Senators, having scored the fifth and final goal of the game on the power play.
So the younger Schenn on the team had a pretty good week last week. He’s also showing the organization that perhaps patience really is a virtue. Schenn has been with the team for a few seasons, and has done well, but he seems to really be coming into it this season. Especially since he is currently the team’s point leader.
He also gets a lot of help from his teammates. Schenn and his linemate Wayne Simmonds really seem to click when they are on the ice together. So far this season, they’ve been OK together, but this week Simmonds has been key to helping Schenn get the puck to the net.
