NHL suspends Flyers F Schenn 1 game for charging

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The NHL has suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn one game for charging New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov.

Schenn will miss Thursday's game against the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center. Schenn will forfeit $4,702.70.

The hit occurred in the second period of New Jersey's 3-0 win over the Flyers on Tuesday in Newark, N.J. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Schenn, 21, has one assist and five penalty minutes this season, as Philadelphia has stumbled to an 0-3 start. Last year, he appeared in 54 games, posting 12 goals and 18 points. He also blocked 26 shots.

In the offseason, the Flyers acquired Schenn's brother, Luke, a defenseman, from Toronto.

Quote of the Day

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'
