Brayden Schenn wants to remain with Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell when the Flyers open the regular season and he hopes to stay there for the balance of the year.
"I want to go in there and win that spot and hopefully stay there," Schenn said after Monday's practice. "It's an opportunity to play with one of the top players in the league, and Hartnell is coming off a great year. For me, I'm just trying to blend in and find chemistry as quick as possible and hopefully step up and fill that role." He has seen some time at right wing with AHL Adirondack this campaign, but has spent most of his career as a center. Schenn played great in the minors during the lockout and he appears to be poised for a more productive sophomore campaign despite the shortened schedule.
