LUKE SCHENN has been in the NHL so long that sometimes it is easy to forget he is just 24 years old. It is even tougher for Schenn himself to imagine, then, that tonight at Madison Square Garden will be his first Stanley Cup playoff game. Since Schenn joined the league in 2008, every NHL team except Edmonton and Atlanta/Winnipeg has made the playoffs. Schenn just happened to leave Toronto - which had experienced a 7-year playoff drought until 2013 - before last season, when the Flyers had one of their rare missteps.

Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn will miss two weeks because of an injury suffered in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Columbus, the team announced Sunday. On Monday, the Flyers will recall a defenseman to play in Tuesday's game against the visiting Islanders. Candidates include Andrew MacDonald, Mark Alt, Davis Drewiske, and Sam Morin. Late in Saturday's game, Schenn was checked into the boards by Columbus' Michael Chaput, fell awkwardly, and appeared to injure his left foot or ankle. Chaput was selected by the Flyers in the third round of the 2010 draft.

In hockey-crazed Toronto, bruising defenseman Luke Schenn was regarded as a flop, a No. 1 draft pick who never lived up to his expectations. Now, the slate is clean. "Sometimes, it's nice to get a fresh start," Schenn said Wednesday after his first informal practice with his new Flyers teammates in Voorhees. "A change of scenery a little bit can maybe work out for the better. I'm excited to be here, and being familiar with some of the guys can only be a positive. " Schenn, 23, acquired in the June deal that sent winger James van Riemsdyk to the Maple Leafs, is reunited with his younger brother, Brayden, who is expected to play on the Flyers' second line.

TAMPA, Fla. - Now that he has earned a spot in the Flyers' lineup, Luke Schenn is trying to adjust to a Russian defensive partner who is still learning English. Pri-vet (hello in Russian), Evgeny Medvedev. Medvedev, 33, making the jump from Russia's KHL, made his NHL debut Thursday. He has been learning a new language by taking English lessons and watching lots of TV. "I think I've had maybe not even half a practice with him," Schenn said before the Flyers opened their season in Tampa.

THROUGHOUT THE games he's sat as a healthy scratch, Luke Schenn maintained a positive mindset. "At the end of the day, when you look back on your career, I don't think it's, for anyone, smooth sailing [the whole way through]," the 25-year-old defenseman had said after skating in the team's optional practice on Wednesday. "That's what makes the story good when you're done, the ups and downs and the way you continue to push through it. If there's any quit, you'd never even be in this situation to begin with because this isn't the first time and you know it's not going to be the last time.

LUKE SCHENN was curious. During the first intermission on Tuesday night, he asked his brother Brayden whether he managed to get a stick on Luke's point shot from the first minute of the game that found its way through Kari Lehtonen. Brayden was given credit for the goal. Coach Craig Berube even praised him postgame for tipping the puck. Luke wasn't sure. Brayden barely celebrated, later confirming to his brother that he never touched it. Rather than petition the official scorers to change the goal back to him, as some hungry goal scorers are wont to do, Luke didn't say a word.

SINCE 2008, exactly 28 of the NHL's 30 franchises - every one except Edmonton and Atlanta/Winnipeg - have qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs at least once. Luke Schenn made his NHL debut as a wide-eyed 18-year-old on Oct. 9, 2008, with the Maple Leafs. Toronto didn't qualify for the playoffs from 2005-06 until last spring, Schenn's first season with the Flyers - who coincidentally missed out on a run at Lord Stanley's chalice for just the second time since 1994. Schenn has played for two of the game's proudest franchises and has never had a crack at the ultimate prize.

The Flyers traded two classy players - defenseman Luke Schenn and forward Vinny Lecavalier - who became known for negative reasons: They were part of two of the worst deals/signings in recent franchise history. In a cost-cutting trade Wednesday, both were dealt to Los Angeles for center Jordan Weal, 23, a decent prospect who starred in the AHL last year but had no points in 10 games with the Kings this season, and a third-round pick in this June's draft. The Flyers shed lots of salary and are now $4.1 million under the cap, according to generalfanager.com.

PITTSBURGH - In a trade that was rumored since last season, the Flyers dealt left winger James van Riemsdyk to Toronto for rugged defenseman Luke Schenn on Saturday. Schenn, 22, will be reunited with his brother, Brayden, a 20-year-old Flyers center. We're pretty close," Luke Schenn said in a conference call with reporters. "It's surreal right now. It's hard to describe how cool this is. " The younger Schenn "couldn't believe it," Luke Schenn said. "He told me it was a dream come true.

Luke Schenn has been held out of the Flyers' last two preseason games as the defenseman's role with the Flyers seems to be in question. But Schenn - who has been the subject of trade rumors - does not appear worried. "It's training camp," said Schenn. "There's nothing to be upset about. Still have a week to see how things will shake out here. Still a few games left. I just want to have a couple more good games. " Schenn did not know on Sunday afternoon if he was going to play on Monday night against the Rangers.

The Flyers signed 24-year-old forward Roman Lyubimov to a one-year, two-way entry-level contract on Monday. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Lyubimov spent the last six seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League with CSKA Moscow. "He's a big guy. He skates well, plays a solid two-way game," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. "We feel like he adds depth to the organization. We'll see how he does in training camp. " Hextall said the team was aware of Lyubimov for the last couple of years, "but he really popped at the World Championships this past year" when he represented Russia and had four goals and four assists in 10 games.

THE STORY is no longer of potential, of the future, of a few more pieces. The story is of now, now, NOW, a hairy 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night the latest evidence that this edition of the Flyers can handle mounting adversity, emerge from it, be strengthened by it even. Possibility has replaced potential. The pieces, long considered insufficient or even borderline dormant, are here now, creating the exciting, unlikely and undoubtedly unnerving narrative that has made the final three-plus weeks of this regular season more relevant than I thought possible when the season began.

Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn are more than brothers. They are best friends, and both say they miss being Flyers teammates. Funny thing is, their play has been elevated - especially Brayden's - since they were separated Jan. 6, the day the Flyers dealt Luke Schenn to Los Angeles.    In his first 22 games since the trade, Brayden Schenn looked noticeably more confident and had nine goals and eight assists - his best streak of the season. Brayden Schenn was asked if his increased productivity was because he was taking on more responsibility with his brother not around.

For Jordan Weal, the wait finally ended. The rookie forward, acquired from Los Angeles on Jan. 6, made his Flyers debut against visiting Boston on Monday. Sam Gagner, who played one game after being recalled from Lehigh Valley, was a healthy scratch. Weal was part of the deal that sent Vinny Lecavalier (four goals in nine games with the Kings) and Luke Schenn (minus-1 in nine games) to Los Angeles. "Jordan has worked for that opportunity," coach Dave Hakstol said before the game.

Flyers coach Dave Hakstol is considering some minor changes to his lineup, and there is a chance that struggling right winger R.J. Umberger is replaced by speedy rookie Jordan Weal in the matchup against visiting Boston on Monday. Umberger has not scored in his last 48 games, including 30 this season. He has six assists and is plus-1. Hakstol said that he wasn't going to "scramble things" but that he would likely make a change. "I think we have to play better, regardless of what the combinations are," he said Sunday after practice in Voorhees.

For a team that is almost at the bottom of the league in scoring and has struggled mightily on the power play and penalty kill, the Flyers are somewhat fortunate to be where they are - battling for an Eastern Conference wild-card spot. Solid goaltending and improved five-on-five defense have kept the Flyers in the playoff hunt. So have their uncanny ability to win close games and surprisingly quick production from rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who, more than anyone else, has steered the team back into playoff contention.

If Flyers general manager Ron Hextall isn't named the NHL's executive of the year - or at least made an honorary certified public accountant - some people haven't been paying attention. In his 20 months on the job, Hextall has traded the contract of an injured player, Chris Pronger, who will never play again; dealt away seldom-used Vinny Lecavalier; who had two-plus seasons left on a contract that absorbed a $4.5 million annual cap hit; and stockpiled draft picks. In short, Hextall has done an amazing job cleaning up his predecessor's messes.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - When Paul Holmgren was general manager, he made many strong deals, transforming the Flyers from the worst team in hockey in 2006-07 to a conference finalist the following season. But two moves he made later in his tenure - acquiring stay-at-home defenseman Luke Schenn for blossoming left winger James van Riemsdyk, and signing free-agent Vinny Lecavalier to a five-year, $22.5 million contract - did not work out as planned. Fact is, they set the team back on a number of levels.
