Luke Schenn (born November 2, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks in the National Hockey League (NHL). Schenn played junior hockey with the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League (WHL). In his final WHL season, Schenn was named to the League’s Second All-Star Team. He was a highly touted prospect heading into the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, where he was selected in the first round, fifth overall, by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Schenn began his professional career in the NHL during the 2008–09 season and played with the Maple Leafs until being traded to Philadelphia following the 2011–12 season. After his rookie season, Schenn’s play was recognized when he was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team. In 2020 and 2021, he won two Stanley Cups as a member of the Lightning. He has represented Canada internationally, winning a gold medal at the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and a silver medal at the 2009 World Ice Hockey Championships.

Schenn is a stay-at-home defenceman whose main focus is preventing goals rather than scoring. With a physical style of play, he is usually among NHL leaders in hits. When he played in Toronto his charity “Luke’s Troops” helped military families attend Maple Leafs home games. His younger brother Brayden plays for the St. Louis Blues, and helped the Blues win their first Stanley Cup in the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals. Luke himself won the Stanley Cup twice in back-to-back seasons with Tampa in 2020 and 2021.
