Schenn back on the ice

Brayden Schenn still has a little more than a week remaining on the timetable for his return to the Flyers’ lineup, but he is making strides in the right direction.

Schenn, 20, returned to practice with the Flyers on Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his foot in Montreal on Oct. 26 when blocking a shot.

Schenn was originally scheduled to be out for four weeks.

He skated in a limited role with teammates on Wednesday, manning the point on the power play and did not participate in their wind sprints. Schenn also wore a protective boot over his skates to protect from further injury.

Schenn, acquired from Los Angeles on June 23 in the Mike Richards trade, has skated in just 4 games with the Flyers this season and has not registered a point. He is also a minus-5 in those 4 games. Schenn is still looking for his first NHL goal.

Schenn started the season in AHL Adirondack, partly as a salary cap saving move, and posted 8 points (4 goals, 4 assists) in 4 games.

More coming after practice.
