This just in… Brayden Schenn is still good.

Team Canada has been pleasantly surprised by the play of Kings prospect Brayden Schenn, who registered another multi-point game in the World Junior Championships. And with seven goals and seven assists in just four games, it’s hard to disagree.

Canada, however, needs more for the rest of their squad. Only the Nashville Predators prospect Ryan Ellis is close to Schenn with eight points (2G, 6 A). Team Canada will face off against Team Switzerland tonight at 3:30 Eastern. The winner of that will face Team USA on Monday.

Here’s some video of the World Juniors that I could scrounge up.

Here’s some interviews with Team Canada’s Brayden Schenn, Quinton Howden and Cody Eakin from earlier in the week.

Brayden Schenn is rocking the World Junior Championships for Team Canada. On Wednesday, the Kings prospect potted four goals against Norway. Schenn has been phenomenal during these WJCs, and Kings’ fans are salivating over when he’ll be donning the Kings’ Crown again.
