Stars' Jamie Benn: Signs eight-year extension with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Benn (abdomen) signed an eight-year, $76 million contract extension with Dallas on Friday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Benn, who will require around six weeks to recover from Thursday's surgery to repair a core muscle injury, finished second in the league with 89 points -- only behind Chicago's Patrick Kane (106) -- and played in every game last season. The 26-year-old wunderkind also led the Stars in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs with 15 points in 13 contests, and it should surprise no one that he just landed a long-term, lucrative deal. The contract length and average annual value ($9.5 million) for Benn compares to the terms obtained by Pittsburgh center Evgeni Malkin in June of 2013.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benn underwent successful surgery to repair a core muscle injury Thursday. He is expected to be fully recovered from the procedure in six weeks.

Benn's recovery timetable puts him on track to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but leaves his status for September's World Cup of Hockey up in the air. The Canadian forward will be reevaluated in six weeks, at which time his availability for the World Cup will be determined. Fantasy owners can expect an update on the 26-year-old sniper's status ahead of Canada's first World Cup contest, which is set to take place on Sept. 17 against the Czech Republic.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Stars intend to sign Benn to a contract extension after July 1, reports Benn is considered the best of the 2017 free agent class.

"Jamie's not going anywhere," said general manager Jim Nill. "We'll get something done." Benn is perhaps the eminent power forward in the NHL and would command max dollars on the open market.

Stars' Jamie Benn: Goes out with a whimper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jamie Benn attempted just one shot on goal and finished with a minus-1 rating as his Dallas Stars were eliminated in humiliating fashion Wednesday with a 6-1 Game 7 loss to the Blues.

Great things were expected of Benn in this game after he totaled 15 points through 12 appearances this postseason, but he came up empty along with the rest of the Stars. While this one will surely sting, the 26-year-old can still hang his hat on a fantastic playoff showing overall following an 89-point regular season.
