"We also wanted a veteran defenseman with NHL experience and strong leadership traits," general manager Bob Murray told the Ducks website. "We did inquire about other big names on the market over the last week, but found the prices extremely high. We will continue to look to improve our team in other areas."
The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Schenn in the first round (No. 5) of the 2008 NHL Draft. He has 143 points (30 goals, 113 assists) in 708 NHL games with the Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers and Maple Leafs, and three points (two goals, one assist) in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
