The Flyers will reportedly receive center Jordan Weal and a third-round pick. Weal is a 23-year-old center while team will also get the draft pick in this year’s draft.
The Flyers have been trying to get rid of Lecavalier for quite some time now. He has a bad contract and the Flyers had to eat 50% of his deal to trade him away.
The stunning deal will have the Flyers absorbing at least $2.25 million of LeCavalier’s $4.5 million for the next two seasons.
Schenn is a different story, as his contract expires at the end of the season. He’s only making $1.675 million with a $1.8 million cap hit, so it’s unclear if the Flyers are also taking some of this deal.
In his three-years with the Flyers, Lecavaliér had 28 goals and 30 assists for 58 points in a 133 games. He came to the Flyers in the summer of 2013 after spending the first 14-years of his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Almost immediately upon signing with the Flyers, it seemed like he didn’t belong in the orange and black. So many people criticized his contract, which was made by former Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.
The 26-year-old Schenn spent the past four-years with the Flyers. With the Flyers, he had 12 goals and 30 assists in 213 games.
He came to the Flyers in the summer of 2012 after a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he spent his first four-years of his career. The Flyers acquired Schenn in a trade that sent James van Riemsdyk North of the Border.
