Jamie Benn Returning To Lineup

Jamie Benn Returning To Lineup

The Dallas Stars Captain has missed nearly two weeks with a foot injury. In a season in which the Dallas Stars seem to be unable to stay healthy, another injury update comes to pass. This time — good news for the lineup, as the Captain Jamie Benn is expected to play tonight. Benn had missed just one game out of 307 previous contests before going down with a foot injury on New Year’s Eve. He played on two bum hips in his Art Ross winning season, and had double hip surgeries in the offseason to avoid missing playing time. Now, the power forward for the Stars has missed the last four...

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Jamie Benn Talks Trying to Learn New Things from the Press Box

Jamie Benn is trying to see possible benefits in being injured. Plus, the Stars play the Red Wings tonight, and an update on Jamie Oleksiak. You know what they say—when life gives you a foot injury, make the most of it by trying to gain a new perspective on the game while watching from the press box. Or, at least, that’s what Stars captain Jamie Benn has been doing while sidelined with a foot injury. But he said stepping back does create a completely different viewfinder. Now, instead of battling through the vision lines on the ice at breakneck speed, he is seeing how plays can go...

Ducks vs. Stars RECAP: Ducks Rain Blocks Out the Stars

Jakob Silfverberg dominates and John Gibson earns his 9th career shutout. On a rainy, drought-quenching night in Anaheim, the Ducks put together an all-around strong team performance backed by a John Gibson shutout for a 2-0 victory. 1st Period The Ducks began the game seemingly aware of the defensive issues plaguing the team lately (wait they’re just now noticing it?). While the Stars have left a lot to be desired in the offensive department compared to last season and with their captain Jamie Benn out with a foot injury, the Ducks cleaned up their back end play and did a good job...

Tyler Seguin To Represent Dallas Stars at NHL All-Star Game

Tyler Seguin To Represent Dallas Stars at NHL All-Star Game

Meanwhile, the Chicago Blackhawks send four representatives in a move that shocks basically no one. The Dallas Stars will be represented by just one player being sent to the NHL All-Star Game in Los Angeles this year: Tyler Seguin. Seguin currently sits 7th in the league in overall scoring (41), seven points back of the leader (Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers). He’s the only one that is top 20 in scoring in the NHL on the Dallas roster, with the next highest being his partner in crime Jamie Benn. With the way the season has gone for the Dallas Stars, fighting for a last Wild Card...

Jamie Benn Placed on Injured Reserve with Foot Injury; Antoine Roussel Activated

Jamie Benn Placed on Injured Reserve with Foot Injury; Antoine Roussel Activated

The move means the Stars captain will miss at least two games. Given the news out of Dallas Stars practice yesterday, where it was made public that Stars captain Jamie Benn would miss his first game due to injury in almost five years, it’s no surprise that the foot injury he’s dealing with after Saturday’s loss to the Florida Panthers is of the slightly more serious variety. That was made official Wednesday as the Stars put Benn on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 31, meaning he will miss not only tonight’s game against the Montreal Canadiens but this weekend’s game against the...

Shea Weber would ordinarily focus on Jamie Benn. The loss of the captain makes everyone else a little worse two-fold tonight. The Dallas Stars return to the ice tonight after a rare three-day break to host the Montreal Canadiens. It's a relaxed stretch for the Stars, who play just once in a six-day span to start 2017. The practice time is needed- And the time to rest injured captains, too, after the Florida Panthers stormed Dallas' castle in the first period Saturday night, taking a 3-0 lead and a pound of flesh as well en-route to the win.

Jamie Benn to Miss At Least Wednesday’s Game with Foot Injury

Jamie Benn to Miss At Least Wednesday’s Game with Foot Injury

Benn hasn’t missed a game due to injury since 2013, including time spent playing on two bad hips, so that that as you will. Jamie Benn doesn’t miss many games. The Dallas Stars captain has made a career of being an every-night player, regardless of the circumstances. In the past three seasons, he’s missed just one game (the final night of the 2013-14 season where they held him out for rest against the then-Phoenix Coyotes), and the season before that he played 41 of 48 games after missing the first chunk of a season while negotiating a contract. He did miss two games in March with a...

Game 36 Afterwords: Jason Spezza Literally Scores a Shorthanded Goal, and a Few Other Things

Hooray for beating bad teams! Jason Spezza killing penalties is awesome. I’ll do a post on how this all happened sometime, but for now, I’m just really pleased that this is working. If we can’t watch Ales Hemsky play goalie in my fantasy universe, this is the next best thing. I also couldn’t help but notice the contrast between Spezza and Benn’s breakaways. Spezza, for one, made his own after roasting Vrbata 1-on-1. Then Spezza made a strong move and roofed it against the grain to beat Mike Smith. Jamie Benn, meanwhile, with far more time and space, tried a weak five-hole move...
