This afternoon the Regina Pats announced that
nineteen-year-old defenceman Andy Schenn has been placed on the sixty-day
injury list and will not return to the ice this season.

Schenn played in five games this season, before suffering a concussion in
Saskatoon on October 8th.

Schenn, a 6'3" 228lb product of Humboldt also had his 2004-2005 season cut
short due to post-concussion syndrome.

"The ongoing lingering effects of the concussions that Andy has received
over the years have put him in this situation. While Andy's desire is to
continue to play, our medical staff determined that at this time and for the
foreseeable future it is unsafe for him to do so. It is disappointing to
all of us, most of all Andy, that his junior career had to end like this,
but Andy's long-term health is of far greater importance," commented Pats GM
Brent Parker.

The Pats acquired the Humboldt SK, native last November from the Vancouver
Giants in exchange for Paul Albers. In 123 WHL regular season games with
Spokane, Vancouver & Regina, Schenn has eight assists and 354 penalty

The loss of Schenn leaves the Pats with seven defencemen on their current

I was afaid this may happen after finding out he had a concussion again. Was really hoping to have him in the line up later...but I guess not.

That's terrible news for Andy, hopefully he can get better and get back on the ice next year.

This really sucks. He was doing so well before the latest concussion. Its too bad he wont be around this year. Hopefully he can heal so that he can continue next year.

Even if Andy is allowed to resume his hockey career next year he will most likely be playing somewhere else as he wil be a 20 year old (Festerling, Deck, Ross, Fuder, Halifax & Sievert will all be 20 next year) . From the few games I actually saw him play he will be a missed physical presence. Good luck to Andy and hopefully he can get over his concussion(s) and be able to live a healthy life; playing hockey or not.
