Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers remained active following the completion of the second day of the 2012 draft, acquiring defenseman Luke Schenn from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for forward James van Riemsdyk.
Van Riemsdyk totaled just 11 goals and 24 points in 43 games during an injury- plagued season last year on the heels of leading the club with seven goals in 11 postseason contests in the Spring of 2011.
Over his three-year tenure with the Orange and Black, van Riemsdyk tallied 47 goals and 99 points in 196 regular-season contests, adding 11 scores and 15 points in 39 playoff appearances.
Schenn, the fifth-overall pick of Toronto in the 2008 draft, picked up two goals and 20 assists in 79 games last year for the Leafs. The 22-year-old native of Saskatchewan has 75 points in 310 games for the franchise in the his four-year NHL career.
Luke's younger brother Brayden recorded 12 goals and 18 points in 54 regular- season games for Philly in 2011-12. The 20-year-old notched three goals and nine points over 11 playoff games.
