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.

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.

THREE YEARS AGO, Brayden Schenn laced up for his first training camp with the Flyers with all eyes affixed to him. He was a highly touted first-round pick, referred to around hockey as the best player not yet skating in the NHL. It would be easy to look at Schenn's numbers - 40 goals and 43 assists in 183 games - and say that he hasn't quite lived up to the hype. There have been flashes, like the three-point game he produced against the Penguins in the playoffs during his rookie season.

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.

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, is a big, small town. The type of town where everyone knows everyone - even more so among the small fraternity of hockey players from the prairie lucky enough to make it to the NHL. Journeyman forward Blair Jones is 3 years older than Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn, a bit older still than Brayden Schenn. Their paths never would have crossed in minor hockey circuits or junior hockey. But when Jones signed with the Flyers after the free-agency period opened on July 1, his phone lit up with text messages from the Saskatoon connection.

Six days after he suffered a lower-body injury that was supposed to sideline him for two weeks, Claude Giroux made a surprising return to the Flyers' practice Thursday morning in Voorhees. The team captain stretched, skated gingerly at first, and flipped passes to his teammates. He had a big smile on his face as he shot a puck into an empty net. Later, he did drills with increased speed, looked surprisingly sharp, and was able to make quick cuts. Giroux, who finished third among NHL scorers last season with 86 points, said he felt good.

Even though they are without injured captain Claude Giroux, the Flyers' power play has been frighteningly effective in the preseason. Especially at home. First-period power-play goals by Brayden Schenn, Vinny Lecavalier, and hotshot rookie Shayne Gostisbehere propelled the Flyers to a 4-0 exhibition win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. That made the Flyers (2-1-1) 7 for 10 on the power play in their two games at the Wells Fargo Center. "We're moving the puck well and getting good shots," Lecavalier said after his second goal of the preseason.

Flyers center Vinny Lecavalier is trying to erase the memory of his least-productive full season since 2001-02. Lecavalier suffered facial and back injuries. He was switched to left wing for huge stretches. There were defensive lapses and a team-worst minus-16 rating. At 34, he has put last season - and the summer trade talk - behind him. "It's time to move on," he said. In his first year with the Flyers, after signing a five-year deal for $22.5 million, Lecavalier managed 20 goals but just 37 points after 14 mostly productive seasons with Tampa Bay. "It's easy to look back and make excuses, but whatever happened, happened," Lecavalier said before he scored one of the Flyers' four power-play goals as their split-squad team beat Washington, 5-4, Monday at the Wells Fargo Center.

When the Flyers open their preseason schedule with a split-squad game Monday night against Washington at the Wells Fargo Center, they will showcase what appears to be their new No. 1 defensive pairing: Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald. MacDonald, 28, is looking forward to getting more chances to shut down opponents' top lines this season. "You want to be out there in all the high-level situations, the important ones, and help your team win," said MacDonald, who led the NHL with 242 blocked shots last season while playing for the Islanders and Flyers.

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.
