He played 18 games after he was traded to Vancouver on Jan. 17, 2019.

Selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round (No. 5) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Schenn has 145 points (30 goals, 115 assists) in 734 regular-season games with the Canucks, Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers and Maple Leafs and three points (two goals, one assist) in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

"We really liked the way Luke ended the season in Vancouver," Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois said. "Once he got there, we thought his play really picked up. He brings experience and size (6-foot-2, 221 pounds). … We thought he'd be a really good fit."
