Schenn made his WHL debut on September 21, 2007 against the Saskatoon Blades, earning his first WHL point, an assist.[citation needed] Later in the season, on October 17, he notched his first WHL goal against the Red Deer Rebels.[citation needed] Schenn finished his first season as the Wheat Kings' leading scorer[2] and as the top rookie scorer in the WHL tallying 28 goals and 43 assists for 71 points,[3] earning him the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as WHL rookie of the year. He was also the inaugural winner of the 2007-08 Boston Pizza WHL 'Fan's Choice' Award.[4]

Midway through the 2008–09 season, Schenn was named WHL and CHL Player of the Week for the week ending January 18, 2009, after a 7-point effort in 2 games.[5] He finished the season improving to 85 points in 69 games to lead the Wheat Kings in scoring a second consecutive season.[6] Playing in his NHL draft year, Schenn had been listed as the third highest prospect among WHL players in the NHL Central Scouting (CSS)'s preliminary rankings,[7] while International Scouting (ISS) ranked him at fifth overall and first in the WHL.[8] Schenn's value remained the same at fifth overall with the NHL CSS's midway ranking.[9] At the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, he was drafted 5th overall by the Los Angeles Kings.
