Article: Schenn ready for opener; Flyers have tough decisions

After he took part in Sunday’s practice in Voorhees, rookie center Brayden Schenn said he is healthy and available to play in Thursday’s opener in Boston.

But are the Flyers ready to put him on their roster?

General manager Paul Holmgren said he probably won’t finalize his decision until Wednesday at 3 p.m., when rosters must be submitted to the NHL.

Schenn, who missed the last two preseason games because of a shoulder injury, has a $3.1 million salary-cap hit. If he starts the season with the AHL Phantoms, the Flyers will have cap space to include a player like defenseman Matt Walker ($1.7 million cap hit) on their roster.

Acquired in the blockbuster summer deal that sent Mike Richards to Los Angeles, Schenn was injured in an exhibition Monday against the New York Rangers.

“It would have been nice to get a couple more games in, but I’m feeling pretty good; it was a faster recovery than I thought,” said Schenn, who later had an ice pack on his left shoulder. “I’m shooting the puck hard and hope it gets better every day. Should be 100 percent coming up here” on Thursday.
