“Of the five first-round defenseman who made NHL rosters, Toronto’s Luke Schenn may be off to the best start.
He is averaging 18:51 minutes played in his first two games, and played more than 20 minutes against Montreal. He hasn’t behaved like a rookie, and may have been Toronto’s top defenseman in a 6-1 loss to the Canadians. Wilson even had him killing penalties, and Schenn was the only Toronto defenseman who wasn’t a minus-player. He hasn’t been on the ice for any even-strength goals in the first two games, and he has three shots on goal.
I was impressed with his poise and confidence when I watched him live last Thursday against Detroit”
I am a huge Kevin Allen fan, and I respect his opinion. Nice words about Luke indeed…
