The Los Angeles Kings will be holding their breath a bit while they await news on how severe an injury is to one of their top prospects. Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider lays the bad news on us.
According to the Kings, prospect Brayden Schenn suffered a knee injury during a training session in Canada. Schenn is headed to Los Angeles for an MRI tomorrow, and at the moment there is no timetable for his return to the ice.
If the name Schenn rings a bell with you, it’s because he’s the younger brother of Leafs defenseman Luke Schenn. Brayden Schenn, unlike his brother, is a centerman and was/is looking at an outside shot of making the Kings out of training camp this year. Schenn was the Kings first round pick in 2009 (5th overall) and was likely ticketed to rejoin his junior team, the Brandon Wheat Kings, if he didn’t make the Kings.
It’s unknown as to how bad his injury is so getting antsy and speculating seems a bit reckless. That said, if it’s a significant injury, setting back his development would be a tough blow for the Kings.
