HOURS AFTER trading Scott Hartnell to Columbus yesterday for R.J. Umberger, the Flyers announced they agreed to terms on a 2-year contract extension with Brayden Schenn. The team, per its policy, did not disclose financial terms of the deal, but according to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the extension is worth an average of $2.5 million per year. Earlier in the offseason, general manager Ron Hextall said he regarded re-signing Schenn as a top priority. The 22-year-old center was set to become a restricted free agent when free agency begins on July 1. "I'm happy with the deal I got," Schenn said yesterday evening on a conference call with reporters.

BORN IN Canada three years and four days apart, traded from the Kings to the Flyers on the same day this June, new-to-us Brayden Schenn (left), a center, and Wayne Simmonds (right), a winger, celebrate their b-days this week. Today Schenn slap-shots 20 (no Molson for you!). On Friday "Simmer" hat-tricks 23. The two still may be making their way to town - training camp starts in three weeks. But soon the former Kings will be princes of Philly, or at least studs of South Jersey. High above the ice, next year's stars will shine bright for Schenn, who'll dig his new home - and a certain lady friend.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - In the first three-plus weeks of the season, the Flyers have been maddeningly inconsistent and have rarely put together three strong periods. Tuesday was an exception. The Flyers finally played well in all three zones in each period, and the result was a much-needed, 3-2 win over Winnipeg, a victory that ended their four-game road losing streak. "What I liked about it was it was 60 minutes of a committed hockey team that went out to win a game to keep us moving in the right direction," coach Peter Laviolette said after the Flyers improved to 2-6 on the road.

On their car rides to the hockey rink earlier this season, forward Brayden Schenn tried to keep his brother, Luke, in a positive mind-set after the defenseman was a healthy scratch for three straight games. Now it's Luke's turn to pump up his brother. Entering Tuesday's matchup against visiting Washington, Brayden Schenn had been held without a goal in his last 11 games. "We've always had each other's backs," Luke Schenn said Tuesday after the morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center.

The stars seemed aligned for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn this season. He was healthy after an injury-plagued 2011-12 season and was ecstatic to be reunited with his older brother, Luke. In addition, he figured to have a carryover effect from a strong second half of his rookie year. The NHL lockout, however, has Schenn's projected breakout season on hold. Schenn, 21, is one of several Flyers who are in training camp with the AHL Adirondack Phantoms because of the lockout.

Flyers center Brayden Schenn was relieved Wednesday after surviving a nasty hit from Washington's Tom Wilson during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the visiting Capitals. Skating at full speed, Wilson hit Schenn, whose head crashed into the boards. Schenn needed to be helped off the ice. He said he has a stiff upper back and neck from the incident. "I feel good, better than I thought," Schenn said after he sat out Wednesday's optional practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. According to general manager Paul Holmgren, a formal concussion test was not needed after a preliminary evaluation.

Maybe it's because opponents now have a book on them, or maybe it's because some of the second-year Flyers are pressing. Whatever the reason, Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn are going through sophomore slumps. Ditto Matt Read, who has stumbled after a hot start. Entering Thursday's game against the New York Islanders, all three were in long goal-scoring droughts: Couturier at 24 consecutive games, Schenn at 12, and Read at nine. Coach Peter Laviolette was asked whether he was concerned that the streaks might start weighing on the players.

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 decisions 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 such as defenseman Matt Walker ($1.7 million cap hit)

The Flyers have questions about their Kimmo Timonen-less defense; questions about Claude Giroux's health and who will replace left winger Scott Hartnell; questions about whether young players such as Sean Couturier, Luke Schenn, and Michael Del Zotto can take their games to another level. But for the first time in a while, there are few questions about the team's most important position. That's because goalie Steve Mason rediscovered his mojo last season, and even outplayed the great Henrik Lundqvist in the Flyers' seven-game playoff loss to the New York Rangers.

Center Claude Giroux's undisclosed lower-body injury, suffered 15 minutes after camp opened Friday, has had a domino effect on the Flyers. In Day 2 of coach Craig Berube's first camp, three of the lines were altered Saturday because of the injury. Brayden Schenn, who had been penciled in as the top-line left winger with Giroux and right winger Jake Voracek, moved to center - the position he primarily played last season, while Michael Raffl played left wing. Raffl had been on the third line the previous day. Because he played at center and wing last season, Schenn said he feels "confident and comfortable at both positions.

1 Conditioning: Last fall, Ed Snider called it the worst training camp he'd seen in his 46 seasons as team owner. Peter Laviolette was fired three games into the regular season when the Flyers broke out of the gate winless. This time, coach Craig Berube said he kept in touch with every player over the summer, asked a few to shed body fat, and vows his team will be in top physical shape. 2 Vinny Lecavalier: Both the Flyers and veteran forward Vinny Lecavalier say there are no hard feelings after a trying offseason.

Handcuffed by salary-cap woes he inherited, new Flyers general manager Ron Hextall was unable to upgrade the team in the offseason. Hextall isn't worried. The former standout goaltender believes he has a solid nucleus that features center Claude Giroux, right winger Wayne Simmonds, and goalie Steve Mason. He thinks a year of maturity will help the younger players make major strides, and says having their first training camp under coach Craig Berube will help the Flyers get off to a better start than last year.

The start of summer has not been good to the Flyers. Their captain, Claude Giroux, spent a night in jail last week after a bizarre incident in an Ottawa bar. Their new general manager, Ron Hextall, was hamstrung by the team's salary-cap situation and could not join the free-agent frenzy. And while the Flyers were signing spare parts - some for depth, some for their AHL affiliate - most of their Metropolitan Division opponents made improvements. So where will the Flyers stand when the season starts?

TRY AS HE might, Ron Hextall could not rid the Flyers of any of the numerous onerous contracts bogging down their salary cap. Hextall could not find a taker for center Vinny Lecavalier, despite the fact he gave agent Kent Hughes more than 2 weeks to work out a landing spot. He will be paid a $2 million signing bonus today, which hampered negotiations. Hextall did not budge in buying out winger R.J. Umberger, despite the fact he is the Flyers' second-highest paid forward after Claude Giroux.

THE NAME of "Mr. Irrelevant," otherwise known as the 210th pick, had not been registered by the Stanley Cup champion Kings even 10 minutes Saturday and Ron Hextall was ready to put his first-ever draft in the rearview mirror. The Flyers have work to do. "First on my agenda right now is to go back to Skate Zone and take a look at our [salary] cap," Hextall said. "We have the hard number now, so we've got to look at it and see where we can try to maneuver. " The Flyers need to do some serious maneuvering just to fill out their roster for the upcoming season, let alone entertain pricey free agents when the signing window opens tomorrow at noon.

From the Flyers' perspective, there are two ways to look at the fact that the New York Rangers could be on their way to reaching the Stanley Cup Finals: Having extended the Rangers to the limit in the first round, the Flyers could just as easily still be playing. Therefore, they are thisclose to being a legitimate Stanley Cup contender and not many offseason moves are needed. Or . . . The Flyers are noticeably lacking in speed when compared with Eastern Conference finalists Montreal and the Rangers, and they cannot match either team's defense.
