Brayden Schenn named NHL 2nd Star of the Week

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

Schenn tied for the League lead in points with six (3-3-6) in three games as the Flyers (32-29-18, 82 points) gained five of a possible six points.

“There are a lot of great players in this league so to be selected as the NHL 2nd star is a real honor," said Schenn. "This is a team sport and I have to give credit to all of my teammates and my line-mates, Sean Couturier and Matt Read, who I played with this past week.  The power play was clicking too, which obviously helped.”

Schenn opened the week by notching two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins April 1. He tallied an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes April 4 and finished the week by again tallying a game-winner against the Penguins and adding two assists in a 4-1 victory April 5. Schenn increased his scoring total to 17-28-45, setting a single-season career high. He ranks second on the club in game-winning goals (five), fifth in goals and points and fourth in assists.

Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond was awarded First Star by posting a 3-0-1 record, 1.63 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage, while Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno had four goals and five points in three games and was awarded the Third Star.
