Brayden Schenn seems to have won the first-annual “Oscar Moller Award,” given to the young player who generates the most surprising buzz in training camp. Schenn is still a longshot to make the team, but considering he didn’t even turn 18 until late August, he is doing quite well for himself in his first camp. Schenn talked the other day about his training-camp experience…
“It’s pretty much what I thought it would be,” Schenn said. “Everyone is competing and trying to make the team and make an impression. I kind of expected that. For me, my focus is just on getting better each day and trying to make a good impression.”
I asked Schenn if his brother had given him any particular advice. Luke Schenn, a 2008 first-round pick who played 70 games on defense for the Toronto Maple Leafs last season.
“He pretty much just said, `Don’t read into anything. You’ve got to worry about yourself, and that’s pretty much all you can do,”’ Brayden Schenn said. “He said to try to get better each day, and that’s where my focus has been on.”
