Report Card: Luke Schenn
Defense (R), 6’2, 22 y/o
GP: 79 G: 2 A: 20 Plus/Minus: -6 PIM: 62
S: Luke Schenn’s expectations have been everywhere from being a bottom 6 d-man to a top 4. Was in the top of the league for hits by a defenceman and he can definitely deliver those. An up and down campaign had created rumors of a trade in the works involving Schenn, but ultimately he stayed a Leaf. In my opinion, he could become a piece in any of Burke’s trades this off-season.
Final Grade: B-
J: I like Luke Schenn, always have, but I’m seriously starting to wonder if it’s better to keep him around, or to possibly try and trade him. This past season was abysmal for him. He did very little to capture my attention. In fact, the few times I did notice him on the ice, were when he made massive mistakes that had me covering my face. He’s supposed to be a shut down guy, and I didn’t really get that from him this season. He’s still young, and therefore still has time to get better before being written off completely. Overall, I was less than impressed with him this season. I hope he can work it out and make it work next season, because there are a few players on the Marlies that I would prefer to see on the ice, over him right now.
Final Grade: D
What grade would YOU give him?
