Injury has Three Sidelined at NHL Camps

Brandon Wheat Kings' captain Brayden Schenn has yet to receive medical clearance to return to the ice at the Los Angeles Kings' camp.

Schenn suffered a minor knee injury in Wheat Kings' practice last week but a subsequent MRI showed no structural damage and he remains day-to-day.

"I caught a rut in the ice, and my knee just kind of collapsed in," Schenn told lakings.com Monday, "Right now, I'm just going treatment, therapy and rehabbing it and, most importantly, it's feeling better every day."

While Schenn isn't participating in camp, he did skate lightly on Monday.

"This was just shooting on the goalies, not doing a whole lot, just kind of taking it easy," added Schenn, 'I just wanted to see how it feels but I still have to get cleared by the doctors before I do anything too crazy."

The Kings are hopeful that Schenn will be able to participate in their main camp, which begins on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Schenn isn't the only Wheat King missing out on pro camp because of injury.

Michael Ferland has yet to pass his physical with the Calgary Flames because of a knee injury suffered during the Wheat Kings' training camp while David Toews will miss the New York Islanders camp because of a shoulder injury.

Three other Wheat Kings are at NHL camps.

Brodie Melnychuk is playing with Anaheim's propects at the Young Stars Tournament in Penticton, B.C., Scott Glennie is with Dallas at the Traverse City Prospect Tournament and Mark Stone is with Ottawa at a rookie tourney in London, Ontario.
