  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Moves up to second pair
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn replaced Alexei Emelin (healthy scratch) on the second defensive pairing in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win Vancouver. He had two blocked shots over 19:23 of ice time. A recent acquisition from Dallas, Benn has quickly ingratiated himself to Montreal coach Claude Julien, who scratched Emelin for the first time this season. You can see that Julien trusts the 29-year-old defenseman: In four games, he's gone from 15 minutes of ice time to 19. Benn's not a great source of offense, but he'll continue to play because Julien adores competent blueliners.

  • Benn scored the team's final goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Rangers. Benn's not known for goal-scoring, but somehow his soft sortie from the point eluded Henrik Lundqvist and shifted momentum back to the visitors. Montreal added Benn to shore up its third pair, and he is not expected to provide much in the way of fantasy production unless your league values blocked shots.

  • Benn will be in the lineup with the Canadiens on Tuesday against Columbus, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. The "other" Benn was shipped to Quebec from Texas on Monday, with the Stars receiving Greg Pateryn and a fourth-round draft pick in return. He's expected to assume a role on the Habs' third defensive pairing, likely next to Nathan Beaulieu, and will look to build upon his 15 points in 58 games -- five shy of his career-high 20 from 2013-14.

  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Makes Montreal debut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn blocked five shots and delivered three hits over 15:09 of ice time in Tuesday's 1-0 overtime win over Columbus. Benn didn't look out of place with his new mates, meshing well on the third pair with Nathan Beaulieu. He's not going to provide much offense, but Benn is an established NHL defenseman, which in the eyes of the organization is an upgrade over the departed Greg Pateryn.

  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Dealt to Habs
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn was traded from the Stars to the Canadiens in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a 2017 fourth-round pick Monday, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports. The deal splits up the Benn brothers for the first time since Jordie debuted in the NHL in 2011-12. With the Stars struggling, the club decided to deal from its strength along the blue line for an additional draft pick and some depth up front in the form of Greg Pateryn. Meanwhile, Benn joins the division-leading Canadiens, who are in desperate need of some assistance defensively in front of elite netminder Carey Price. The biggest boost to the blueliner's value will likely come in the form of his rating, but Benn doesn't contribute enough offensively to warrant ownership in the majority of fantasy leagues.
