Schenn activated from LTIR; Sent to AHL

Brayden Schenn is back in hockey action.

The top prospect acquired via trade over the summer was activated from the long term injured reserve when he broke his foot back on October 26. He will be sent to the Adirondack Phantoms in the AHL until the Flyers are ready to call him back up.

Schenn broke his foot blocking a slap shot against the Montreal Canadiens in the end of October. Prior to that, Schenn saw time on the penalty kill and was a -5 with no points in four NHL games this season.

Schenn has four goals and four assists in four games with the Phantoms this season.

HARRY Z BACK -- The Flyers have brought rookie Harry Zolnierczyk back.

Zolnierczyk is back after being loaned for a game to the Trenton Titans of the ECHL.

Zolnierczyk has a goal and an assist in eight games this season with the Flyers.

MARSHALL SENT BACK DOWN -- In order to make room for Zolnierczyk, the Flyers sent defenseman Kevin Marshall back to Adirondack.

By sending back Marshall, it looks like Braydon Coburn could be playing in tomorrow's game against the Islanders.

Marshall saw 20 shifts last night in his first career NHL game, amassing just over 14 minutes. He was also a -1 on the game.

Marc-Andre Bourdon will also travel to Long Island for the game against New York. He saw 24 shifts last night with almost 16 minutes of ice time. He was a +1 in the game.

Chris Pronger will not travel and is out for tomorrow's game against the Islanders.

Nice work, Russo. Will be good to see Schenn get his legs back underneath him and hit the N soon

Kinda disappointed he hasn't reached the scoresheet yet even though it was only four games. A broken foot via blocked shot has to be one of the most frustrating injuries in hockey: getting hurt while helping the team. Excited to see him play uninjured midseason.
