No Decision on Schenn Yet

Brayden Schenn's status hasn't changed, despite Terry Murray's comments Wednesday which indicated that the Los Angeles Kings' head coach felt Schenn’s development might be better served by a final year in junior hockey.

Murray spoke with reporters after the Kings' game-day skate Thursday morning, and no decision had been made.

"We haven't made a decision on Schenn, nothing firm," Murray told KingsVision, "We did have a meeting, a coaches-manager meeting. We talked about a bunch of different scenarios, but we haven't reached any decision. Just keep going through it, and keep working with all the young players that are here, that are part of the hockey club, and try to make them better every day."

Schenn has appeared in eight games this season, recording a pair of assists, but was a healthy scratch for the third straight game on Thursday night and has been out of the lineup for six of the Kings' last 12 games.

"He's the only healthy (spare) forward that we have here right now, so you go through the games and if stuff happens, then he's in. Until we decide anything different, he's part of the team right now," added Murray, "We discussed things and talked yesterday, but we didn't arrive at any firm decision. That's the scenario. He could still get that one game in before we have to make a firm decision."
