The never-ending merry-go-round of daily salary-cap compliance continued on Tuesday, as the Flyers activated center Brayden Schenn from long-term injured reserve and promptly assigned him to Adirondack of the American Hockey League.
Schenn was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after suffering a broken left foot
while blocking a shot during an October 26 game in Montreal.
Prior to the setback, the former first-round pick of the Kings went scoreless
in four games with Philly. Schenn earned a call-up after collecting four goals
and four assists in four games with the Phantoms at the start of the year.
In addition, the Flyers assigned defenseman Kevin Marshall to Adirondack and
recalled forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Trenton of the ECHL.
Marshall had been recalled for Monday’s loss to Carolina, and Zolnierczyk had
been stashed at Trenton to make room for Marshall and fellow defensive
prospect Marc-Andre Bourdon.
According to several sources, all of this is an indication that Braydon Coburn will return to the lineup on Wednesday at the Islanders.
