Schenn's conditioning assignment - LA Kings Insider

Still waiting for official word as to whether the Kings’ plan to send Brayden Schenn to Manchester, for a 14-day AHL conditioning assignment, has been finalized, but today, Terry Murray talked about the Kings’ desire to see it happen and how it might end up benefitting Schenn’s NHL chances in the long run…

MURRAY: “To me, coming into the training camp he had a knee issue, going back to the World Junior training camp this summer. He had a couple other things that were bugging him too. Right now, with the way the season is going, in the early going here, it’s tough to get him going in the games. I feel, because of those injuries, getting him to Manchester to play seven or eight games, in a couple weeks, would be very beneficial for him. Certainly, with Parse being out of the lineup right now, this would be a great opportunity for him to be able to come back and have him play some games, if everything is going well and he’s feeling good physically, and get into the lineup.”
