Benn (eye) returned to the lineup for Monday's game against the Sharks, but failed to tally a point in the contest. Benn has now been held off the scoresheet for five consecutive games, but the 27-year-old forward has still racked up an impressive 63 points in 67 games this season, so it's safe to assume he'll return to form in short order. His next chance to add to his point total will come Thursday in a tough divisional matchup with the Blackhawks.
Benn (eye) will make his return Monday after missing Friday's contest. The superstar was pointless in four straight games before getting injured in a fight Thursday against Vancouver, but he still does have a fantastic 63 points in 66 games. Now that he's back, owners should feel confident rolling with Benn per usual.
Benn (eye) is officially considered a game-day call for Monday's contest against the Sharks, Mark Stepneski of the team's official site reports. Benn missed Friday's contest because of the eye issue, but Stars radio host Bruce LeVine indicates that he practiced without a face shield Sunday and should be considered a better than 50-50 shot at playing in the tilt. A confirmation of his status should come Monday, which will undoubtedly by a top concern of his fantasy owners.
Benn will miss Friday night's game in Calgary as a result of his upper-body injury. Benn will miss his fifth game overall on the season, but the silver lining is that coach Lindy Ruff expects the captain to miss only Friday's contest. There's obviously no guarantees, but wary owners should look for updates on the 27-year-old's status ahead of Monday's puck drop with the Sharks. Jiri Hudler will draw into the lineup with Benn on the shelf Friday.
Benn left Thursday's game with an upper-body injury and won't return. Benn logged 10:17 and picked up no points with five penalty minutes before leaving Thursday's contest. The winger went on a streak in late February and early March, notching 10 points in seven games, before going pointless in his last four. More information about his injury should be revealed following the game or after practice Friday.
