NYI DRAFT CENTRAL: Luke Schenn

The 2008 draft pool is considered the deepest in years and the Islanders are set to select higher in this year’s Entry Draft than they have in the past seven. With the Islanders selecting fifth in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on Friday, June 20 in Ottawa, many highly-touted prospects will be available for the Isles to choose from. Each week leading up to the draft, Newyorkislanders.com will feature a new player who is likely to go early in this year’s draft.


LUKE SCHENN

Team: Kelowna Rockets (WHL)
Position: Defenseman
Born: November 2, 1989 in Saskatoon, SK (Age 18)
Height: 6-3    
Weight: 209
Shoots: Right
ISS Mid-Season Ranking: 6


2007-08 Regular Season: Games Played (57), Goals (7), Assists (21), Points (28), PIM (100)

2008 Playoffs: Games Played (7), Goals (2), Assists (2), Points (4), PIM (6)

Update: Schenn finished the 2007-08 Western Hockey League season by registering seven goals and 21 assists for 28 points in 57 games. For his efforts, he was named to the WHL Western Conference Second All-Star team. He appeared in seven playoff games, registering two goals and two assists, but the Kelowna Rockets fell in the seventh game of their first round series with the Seattle Thunderbirds. He missed time with Kelowna due to his commitment with Team Canada.

Schenn played a prominent role in helping Team Canada win Gold at the 2008 World Junior Championships. He appeared in seven games, and while he did not register a goal or an assist, he led Canada with a plus-five rating.

Strengths: Boasts a big, physical presence that excels as a shutdown defenseman to go along with a big slapshot. Schenn clocked a 94 mile-per hour slapshot at the CHL skills competition this year. Schenn is considered a shutdown blueliner, but also has great passing ability.

What They’re Saying:

“Schenn can play a mean game and plays a tough NHL style defense that is guaranteed to get him a long hard look and career in the National Hockey League.”

-    E.J. McGuire / Director, Central Scouting


“Showed a display of complete calm and poise amid the cauldron of pressure playing for Canada at the world juniors was really impressive. We were never on the bandwagon before, but we're starting to come around.”

-    Kyle Woodlief / USA Today


“He’s a warhorse. He stands up, forces the play and blocks shots.”

-    Matthew Wuest / The Hockey News


“He is often compared to Dion Phaneuf for his no-holds-barred physical game. Mature beyond his years in every aspect. A treat to watch as he uses both his body and stick to effectively remove opponents from the puck. Offensive ability rapidly rounding into form.”

-    Matt Bugg / Fantasyplayers.com
