IIRC, the Kings kept Brayden Schenn for several weeks after he played his 9th game, had him practice with the team and kept him on the active roster. I think they actually delayed the decision by 2-3 weeks, got Schenn several weeks of additional "NHL experience" and then finally sent him back to his junior team.
Great analysis. I would say keep him here and play him. He has shown that he can hold his own on the wing. Maybe he works into the center position in time. He looks comfortable on the wing and adds to the talent level of the club, and that is no small thing. We need all of the talent we can get.
