LATEST | Luke Schenn opens up on a potential return to the Canucks

Published May 24, 2023 at 6:01 PM

Patrik Allvin moved the veteran defenseman Luke Schenn, just a few days prior to the trade deadlines, to the Cup-aspiring Toronto Maple Leafs. We all know how that played out, Schenn was just as great as he was in his time in Vancouver in the role he was given and played a crucial part in the Leafs' triumph over the Lightning.

The beloved veteran made a special appearance on Donnie and Dhali and he was asked about his feeling regarding a potential return to Vancouver. The answer he gave lets us believe that this story may not be done yet.

''As I said, I always enjoyed my time in Vancouver. Obviously, it's why I signed there the second time because I enjoyed it that much the first time. Obviously, passionate fanbase, and I've always been treated fairly by the fans, the media, and the organization's great but it's things I've got no idea.''

Full comments on the subject:

He went on to state that he'd enjoyed his time in Toronto and wanted to see where things went there beforehand. Schenn also talked about the fact that he knew Vancouver was trying to get younger, that they already had Ethan Bear and Filip Hronek on the right side and he really had no idea of what their plans were.

By the looks of it, it seems like he'd accept an offer the Canucks could be sending his way. However, he doesn't think he fits the Canucks upper management's plan for the future. As he noted, the Canucks already have Bear and Hronek, funny enough he made no mention of Tyler Myers, but it feels like he doesn't think he fits into their schemes moving forward.

An experienced veteran and leadership presence he's always extremely valuable in a developing and it's definitely something the Canucks have lacked these last few years, shouldn't they be considering bringing Schenn back, particularly for that aspect of his game?
