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.

FIGURE THIS one out: Brayden Schenn has accumulated nearly 15 percent of his entire season's point total in the last three games. In the penultimate week of a non-playoff season. Add his recent performance to the list of perplexing items about this Flyers team, up there with the disparaging road record (10-20-11), Steve Mason's win total (17) despite a franchise-record save percentage (.929), and Craig Berube's depth charts. Schenn, 23, tied for the league lead in scoring last week with six points - three goals and three assists - in the Flyers' three games (2-0-1)

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.

TURNS OUT, the chain around Brayden Schenn's neck was more choker collar than leash - given how quickly and how hard it was yanked by Craig Berube last week. Schenn's experiment on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek did not last five full periods during the regular season. He was pulled from the line during the second period of last Thursday's loss to New Jersey. It wasn't just a momentary shake-up, either. When the puck dropped on Saturday night against Montreal, it was Michael Raffl flanked to Giroux's left for the opening draw.

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.

Center Scott Laughton seemed out of place doing drills with Sam Dove-McFalls, David Kase, and Travis Konecny, among others, during the Flyers' development camp Thursday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The latter three players, all 18 years old, were selected in the NHL draft last month. Laughton, at 21, is in his fourth development camp since he was a first-round pick (20th overall) in 2012. "I feel like the old guy here a little bit," Laughton, who appears more physically fit than last year, said with a smile.

For those expecting general manager Ron Hextall to continue his magic and quickly make the Flyers a contender, well, reality struck when the first day of free agency arrived Wednesday and the team was able to add only a backup goaltender. In other words, it's going to take Hextall time to climb out of the salary-cap hole he inherited. The Flyers have about $4.5 million in cap space and still need to re-sign restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto. The Flyers made a $1.3 million qualifying offer to the defenseman, but a much heftier, multiyear deal is being discussed.

SEAN COUTURIER arrived back in Quebec on Monday night with a World Championships gold medal, a new coach for the Flyers and a brimming level of confidence. He just didn't have any clue that his solid three-week run for Team Canada in Prague with teammates Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn turned so many heads around the hockey world. "There weren't many North American media covering the tournament, so I didn't have that much of a sense," Couturier said. "The only thing I felt as the tournament went on was that I gained more and more trust from the coaching staff.

TODAY MARKS Day 25 of the Flyers' tight-lipped head-coaching search. Little more information has leaked about the process, other than that No. 1 candidate Mike Babcock is now officially up for grabs.

An impressive name was added to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall's list of coaching candidates Monday. San Jose coach Todd McLellan and the Sharks mutually parted ways, making him a major contender for the Flyers opening. McLellan, 47, a former Detroit assistant, will have a long line of suitors, including Buffalo and Toronto. Interestingly, when McLellan coaches Canada in the world championships in the Czech Republic next month, he will have three Flyers on his team: Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn, and Sean Couturier.

Flyers forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier were added to Canada's roster Thursday for the IIHF world championships in Prague, Czech Republic. They will join teammate Claude Giroux on Team Canada, which starts play May 1 against Latvia. Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins withdrew from Team Canada because his fractured right foot needs more time to heal. - Sam Carchidi

The Flyers have extra motivation as they end their disappointing season Saturday afternoon against Ottawa at the Wells Fargo Center: They will be trying to prevent the surging Senators from clinching a playoff spot. "They'll be coming in with a lot of intensity, something I think we need from an opponent," said Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who will finish the best season of his seven-year career. "Hopefully, we'll be able to come away and ruin their season. " Ottawa (42-26-13), which owns a stunning 22-4-4 record since Feb. 10, can clinch a playoff spot if it registers one point.

The Flyers gave away toasters, blenders, refrigerators, and other assorted prizes on fan appreciation night at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday. As an added bonus, they gave their fans their first victory over the New York Islanders this season. In a wild finish that saw three goals scored in the final 1 minute, 44 seconds, Brayden Schenn won it by firing a shot from above the left circle that somehow beat goalie Jaroslav Halak with 2.1 seconds left, giving the Flyers a crazy 5-4 win over the dazed Isles.

JAKE VORACEK buried his head on the bench. He just fumbled two empty-net chances in the neutral zone while inexplicably searching to find linemate Claude Giroux his first career hat trick. "I was trying to refocus for overtime, to be honest," Voracek said, after the Flyers blew a two-goal lead in a matter of 76 seconds. "It was a tough pill to swallow. " Craig Berube wasn't watching. He was formulating a game plan for bonus hockey. "I wasn't even really paying attention," Berube said.

After they play their final three games this week and then watch the playoffs on TV, the sad reality will hit the Flyers: They wasted a career season by goalie Steve Mason - despite what a certain NBC "analyst" says about him. Mason, who turns 27 next month and believes he has not yet reached his prime, has finally given the Flyers an elite goaltender. But despite his being among the NHL's leaders in save percentage and goals-against average, the team will miss the playoffs for the second time in three years.
