Playing against his big brother Luke is something Brayden Schenn enjoys, but its the relationship that he cherishes most.

The Flyers forward and the Maple Leafs defenceman talk to each other every day, whether its by text or on the phone.

The off-ice stuff is more important to me, to keep in close contact like we do, Brayden Schenn said on Thursday. I have learned a lot from him, and he has done so much for me, whether it has been about the draft or the world junior or the NHL. Always given me advice.

Born on Nov. 2, 1989, Luke is not quite two years older than Brayden, whose birthday was Aug. 22, 1991.

And do you think they would like to play on the same team in the NHL one day? Of course they would. They were teammates once before, back when they were kids in Saskatoon on a team called the Red Wings.

Rumours, which have cooled off, last month had Luke Schenn being traded to the Flyers for forward James van Riemsdyk.

It would be cool to play together down the road, for sure, Luke Schenn said. Right now Im happy to be in Toronto.

Said Brayden Schenn: It would be awesome to play with my brother. Ive always wanted to, but that does not mean it is going to happen.
