Kings practice report: Brayden Schenn probably won't play against Florida

December 1, 2010 |  1:11 pm

Kings Coach Terry Murray says he doesn't plan on playing rookie center Brayden Schenn on Thursday when the Kings host the Florida Panthers.

Schenn, who rejoined the team Monday after spending two weeks on a conditioning assignment with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' American League Hockey affiliate, has not played with the Kings since Oct. 30. The Kings can play him in one more game before they have to make a decision on whether to keep him or send him back to juniors. Schenn has played in eight games and the first year of his pro contract will kick in if he appears in a 10th game.

The Kings also sent forward Dwight King back to Manchester. King, who was called up a day before Schenn was sent down, went pointless in six games.

Kings defenseman Matt Greene practiced Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday's practice session "for maintenance." He will play Thursday.

And here's a quick video interview with Kings forward Wayne Simmonds:
