PHILADELPHIA — When Brayden Schenn came off the ice he went right to the locker room. There were X-rays. They asked him his name, the day of the week, what month it is.

Just no concussion test.

“I didn’t feel any symptoms, but with the baseline, I knew I wasn’t going in back out there so I guess it was just a feel thing,” Schenn said two days after the hit. “If they felt like I needed to take a concussion test the next day, I would have done it, for sure. Since I wasn’t going back out there and they say you’re supposed to go to the quiet room and everything like that. I wasn’t going back out there. I wasn’t gonna go play. They said just see how you feel tomorrow.”

The next day, Schenn felt better and by Thursday morning, he took part in the team’s morning skate and will suit up against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

“I talked to him yesterday and he was feeling better already,” coach Craig Berube said. “We said we’d wait to today and see how he felt this morning and get on the ice. He seems fine.”

After seeing the way he went into the boards, it’s shocking that Schenn will be able to play less than 48 hours after going head first into the boards thanks to a hit by Washington’s Tom Wilson. Even Schenn is surprised he isn’t concussed.
