Schenn Named Blues Captain
The St. Louis Blues have named Forward Brayden Schenn
as the 24th Captain in Franchise History.
Schenn, 32, has spent the past 6 seasons in St. Louis, spending the last 3 as an Alternate Captain. Last season, Schenn had 21 Goals, 44 Assists & 65 Points in 82 Games for St. Louis. as well as being named as the team's nominee for the King Clancy Award, given for the player "who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community."
Schenn was a member of the Blues surprise 2019 Stanley Cup Winning team, having 12 Points in 26 Games. Schenn was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers 5th Overall in the 2009 NHL Draft, the same spot that older brother Luke Schenn
went the year prior in Toronto.
Having been an Alternate Captain since the 2020-21 Season, the veteran Schenn takes over following the departure of prior Captain Ryan O'Reilly, who was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in February of this past year. O'Reilly, like Schenn, spent years as an Alternate before taking over the Captaincy.
Signed until 2028, Schenn appears locked-in as the leader of the Blues for the next few years on a team with a strong youth core. Also named as Alternate Captains are Colton Parayko
, Justin Faulk
& Robert Thomas
, Parayko & Thomas had served as Alternate Captains in the past, with Parayko having held the role since 2020-21 and Thomas in 22-23. Justin Faulk
was a Co-Captain with the Hurricanes, serving with Jordan Staal
in the 2017-18 Season.
