Schenn was recalled by the Flyers today replacing two players - Zac Rinaldo and Harry Zolnierczyk - who were both sent down to the Phantoms.
Schenn, 20, spent four games with the Phantoms in the AHL and had four goals and four assists.
He had to start the season in the AHL because of the suspension to Jody Shelley and the Flyers precarious cap position. However, now that Shelley is off the suspension, Rinaldo is moveable as the Flyers don't need another fighter and Zolnierczyk, who was a one game replacement for the dinged up Andreas Nodl, was sent down despite scoring his first NHL goal in his first NHL game.
The Flyers are actually operating above the salary cap but can do so because of injury allowance space from Ian Laperriere and Blair Betts being on the long-term injury list. Even still, the Flyers are dangerously close to using up their allowance and may have to make another move soon to get some financial breathing room.
I'll have more on this as the day goes on.
