Schenn Heating up for Blues
Brayden Schenn recorded an assist, a blocked shot and three shots on goal during Sunday’s 7-2 win over the Canadiens. Schenn started the season on a concerningly slow pace of just 16 points through 38 games. That said, the 32-year-old center has turned things around of late. He racked up 13 points across the last 13 games. He’s on pace to fall short of last year’s 65-point mark, but with 13 goals so far, he could certainly reach the 20-goal threshold for the eighth time in his career.
Rielly Offered in-Person Hearing
The NHL Department of Player Safety announced Sunday that Morgan Rielly was offered an in-person hearing for cross-checking Ottawa’s Ridly Greig in Saturday’s contest. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the NHL’s New York office. An in-person hearing opens the possibility for Rielly to be suspended for six or more games. The 29-year-old blueliner was assessed a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct at 19:54 of the third period in Saturday’s 5-3 loss to the Senators. Rielly has generated seven goals, 43 points, 132 shots on net and 95 blocked shots over 50 games this season.
