Luke Schenn was drafted fifth overall in the first round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native spent three seasons (2005-2008) in the WHL with the Kelowna Rockets, where he was named to the West Second All-Star Team and represented the WHL at the Canada-Russia Challenge during his final year. The former alternate captain of the Rockets finished his WHL career with 68 points and 325 penalty minutes in 189 games. After an impressive pre-season performance, he signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs in October 2008. He made his NHL debut in the October 9th season opener against the Detroit Red Wings, where he racked up more than 17 minutes of ice time. He went on to score his first NHL goal on February 7th against the Montreal Canadiens. Also during the 2008-09 season, he played in the NHL YoungStars Game and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team. He finished his rookie season with 14 points in 70 games and racked up a team leading 206 hits. In international hockey, he has represented Canada on numerous occasions, including the 2007 World Under-18 Championships, 2008 World Junior Championships (gold medal) and the 2009 World Championships (silver medal). At 6’2 and around 215 pounds, Schenn is a strong and physical shutdown defenseman who isn’t afraid to deliver hits or drop the gloves. He has solid skating ability and owns a good shot from the point. However, his offensive numbers are low, but that may change as he has only played one season in the NHL thus far.
