Report: Blues’ Schenn drawing interest around the league

St. Louis Blues forward Brayden Schenn is drawing trade interest around the league, TSN's Pierre LeBrun said on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading."

The underachieving Blues are in "full listening mode," according to LeBrun, including in conversations concerning the team's core players.

Schenn would be more than just a rental if he's moved before the Feb. 25 trade deadline; he's signed through next season at a $5.125-million cap hit.

The 27-year-old set career highs in both goals (28) and assists (42) last season - his first in St. Louis. Like most of the Blues, he's regressed in 2018-19 with just nine goals and 15 assists in 37 games.

Nonetheless, Schenn's ability to play both center and wing while providing a physical presence in a team's top six certainly makes him an attractive commodity.
