philadelphia flyers trade rumors

The National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today that they have suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn for 1 game for charging New Jersey Devils’ defenseman Anton Volchenkov in a game on Tuesday.

The hit took place midway through the second period with the Flyers trailing 3-0. As Volchenkov skated around the corner in the Devils’ zone, Schenn came racing in from the side boards and left his feet only to hit the 30-year old Russian square in the head. Schenn did not receive a penalty on the play.

As a result of the suspension, Schenn will forfeit $4,702.70. The money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance fund.
