Kings prospect Schenn to have tests on injured knee

September 8, 2010 |  4:32 pm

Brayden Schenn, who was expected to contend for a spot centering the Kings' second line this season, injured his knee while training and is scheduled to travel to Los Angeles for an MRI on Thursday.

A Kings spokesman had no additional information and said further details would likely be available Thursday afternoon. Schenn was supposed to participate in the Kings' rookie camp, which starts Saturday at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo.

Schenn, chosen fifth in the 2009 entry draft, appeared in one game for the Kings last season on an emergency basis on an amateur tryout contract and was penciled in to center the second line, a crucial spot for a team that urgently needs production and has been weak up the middle. He had 34 goals and 99 points in 59 games last season with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi hasn't yet responded to an e-mail asking for more information about Schenn's status. If he replies, we'll post it here.
