Schenn is slated to undergo abdominal surgery Thursday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Schenn will miss Saturday's game against the Oilers due to a lower-body injury.

The Flyers' defensive ranks had become a bit crowded with the return of Michael Del Zotto earlier in the week, resulting in the team skating seven defensemen in Thursday's game against the Flames. Schenn's absence will make the lineup decisions a little easier for coach Craig Berube, but the absence of one of the team's most active hitters will be missed. Along with his 194 hits, Schenn has compiled three goals and 14 points while averaging just over 18 minutes of ice time in 58 games.

Sure, one was on an empty-netter, but hey, you won't find Schenn complaining after he notched multiple points in a game for the first time all season. Schenn's now got as many points (12) as he collected last year, so he's on a bit of a better pace, but his fantasy value is still largely restricted to deep leagues that count hits.

He would also get in a fight with the Pens' Steve Downie, resulting in a trip to the locker room for the latter. Schenn's toughness on the Flyers' back end isn't anything new, but his improved scoring output of late is a more startling development.
