He'd have to sign a NHL contract after this one game ATO if DL wants him to continue playing in the NHL, but then he could still be returned to juniors before his 10th game without the first year of his contract kicking in.

Tonight is literally a freebie for DL.
Why would Schenn agree to play for free?

Isn't he taking a bit of a risk in doing this for us?
