Brayden Schenn Re-Called By Philadelphia Flyers

Top Philadelphia Flyers prospect Brayden Schenn wasn't going to stay in Adirondack forever. A locker room stall waited for him in Philadelphia whenever the Flyers decided to re-call him from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms.

That happened Wednesday.

Schenn, acquired in the Mike Richards trade in June, played four games in Adirondack and had four goals, four assists and a plus-3. His brief stay in the AHL reduced his salary cap hold in Philadelphia by nearly $1.75 million.

One day after Jody Shelley completed his five-game suspension, the Flyers optioned Zac Rinaldo and Harry Zolnierczyk to Adirondack, making way for Schenn's Philadelphia debut. The talented center played eight games for Los Angeles last year, contributing two assists.

After the latest roster move, the Flyers are now about $11,000 under the salary cap, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. 

Schenn will be eligible to play Thursday night (7 p.m.) against the Washington Capitals
