  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Ready to rock Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn (illness) will play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, John Lu of TSN.ca reports. Benn will skate in his usual top-pairing role against Toronto on Saturday. The 30-year-old defenseman has been a decent source of offense from the blue line for Montreal this season, notching two goals and five assists in 20 games.

  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Flu bug pays a visit
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn is dealing with the flu and it caused him to miss Friday's practice. There's nothing to suggest that this is anything more than a day-to-day issue for Benn, whose bread and butter primarily comes in the blocked shots column anyway. The B.C. native, who has redirected 38 shots in 19 games, will be reevaluated ahead of Saturday's home contest against the Maple Leafs.

  • Benn scored his first goal of the season and tacked on an assist in Tuesday's win over the Golden Knights. The 30-year-old rearguard isn't known for his offense, but he's been playing some great hockey lately and logged a season-high 25:51 of ice time Tuesday. Benn has never surpassed 20 points in his career, but he's picked up five through 15 contests this season, so if the minutes continue to pile up, Benn could be of value in some very deep leagues.

  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Promoted to first pair
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn was moved from the third defensive pair to the first for Saturday's game against the Capitals. He had two shots, one hit, two blocked shots and was minus-1 over 19:42 of ice time in a 6-1 loss. Head coach Claude Julien moved 19-year-old Victor Mete off the top pair after the entire defensive corps allowed 45 shots to get to Carey Price during Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Buffalo. If Benn remains aligned with Shea Weber, that would mean more ice time and opportunities to add hits and blocked shots. Offensively, there isn't much to Benn's game, although he could skate his way into additional scoring by virtue of playing with Weber.

  • Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Suiting up Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Benn (upper body) is healthy and will be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Rangers. The midseason acquisition sat out Montreal's final six games of the regular season, but he'll be paired with Jeff Petry on the second defensive unit as playoff action begins. Benn finished 2016-17 with 17 points in 71 games; just two of those came in the 13 games he played for the Habs.
