Big ups and congrats to Brayden (the younger) Schenn.
Schenn the elder & Schenn the younger
BS signed a one-day amateur tryout agreement with the Kings, to fill in for injured the Loktionov (dislocated shoulder), who had been called up from Manchester to replace the injured Stoll. B rocketed up the depth chart for the Kings' away game vs. the Canucks - convenient as he was in Victoria on Wednesday for a Canadian junior all-star competition. So what does it mean for his future with the Kings? I have no idea. He played his ten games and was sent back to the Wheat Kings, but given the CBA rulings, the one-day tryout allows him to play for the date of the contract. Will they sign him to a professional contract? Unknown, but he put up pretty good numbers in his first NHL game, and he has 39 points in 24 games so far with the Wheat Kings. Keeping him can be a good thing if he can adjust to the speed of the NHL. Although he does need to work on his faceoffs.

Sadly, the Kings lost, 1-4, but Brayden put up respectable numbers for a first-timer, and at the same time managed to be the 3rd youngest player to play in the Kings organisation. There were only a couple photos of B from the game, and one isn't really a highlight photo, so... here you go! B racing with Mason Raymond for the puck.
Keep it up, BSchenn. Hope you stay for more than a day, big guy! Good luck.
