The Blues had been without a captain since Ryan O'Reilly's departure to the Toronto Maple Leafs last season. General Manager Doug Armstrong approached Schenn and offered him the prestigious role, to which Schenn responded,

Schenn brings a wealth of experience to the captaincy at 32 years old, having been an assistant captain for the Blues for the past three seasons. In his tenure with the Blues, he has accumulated 341 points, showcasing his significant contribution to the team's success.
With Brayden Schenn as captain, Blues fans eagerly anticipate the upcoming season, while Flyers fans also celebrate the success of their former player in his new leadership role.
