Luke Schenn Back In Toronto?

Published January 15, 2018 at 11:53

As we get closer to the trade deadline, we can expect to hear some pretty crazy trade rumours involving the Toronto Maple Leafs. While we'll probably continue to hear daily how the Leafs could flip JVR or Bozak, it's always interesting to see what people say could come the other way. The main area of focus continues to be the Leafs blueline and Mark Easson of MyNHLTradeRumors recently listed a bunch of candidates which could help the team. The list featured names we've continued to hear like Erik Gudbranson and Mike Green, but it also featured the name of former Toronto Maple Leaf defenseman Luke Schenn. Schenn was of course drafted by the Leafs fifth overall in the 2008 NHL draft, he would be eventually traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange of James van Riemsdyk. The young defenseman while useful on the penalty kill for the Leafs never really found his five on five game and those struggles continued during his time in Philly and also Los Angeles. He signed a two year deal with the Arizona Coyotes and besides some big hits hasn't exactly been a standout for the Coyotes either. As an upcoming UFA he could probably come to the Leafs at a low cost adding some experienced depth to the roster, however it's questionable as to what kind of an impact he could make. Would you like to see Schenn back with the Leafs?
