Player News
  • Bennett will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety for boarding Blake Coleman on Sunday. The fact that Bennett is having a hearing all but guarantees he will be suspended for at least one game, though an official announcement should come from the league prior to Tuesday's Game 2 clash with the Lightning. Without Bennett in the lineup, Alexander Wennberg figures to jump into a second-line center role.

  • Bennett (undisclosed) produced a pair of assists, four shots on goal, four PIM, three hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Lightning in Game 1. Bennett had a hand in goals by both of his linemates as Jonathan Huberdeau and Owen Tippett scored in the third period. The 24-year-old Bennett enters the postseason with 19 points in 30 playoff contests in his career. He's clicked effectively as the Panthers' second-line center, and he tends to elevate his game when it matters most -- this could be a breakout for the Ontario native if the Panthers make a deep run.

The 24-year-old forward has been on fire since being traded to the Panthers at the deadline, racking up six goals and 15 points in just 10 contests.

He'll finish the regular season with 10 goals and 17 assists over 48 appearances between the Flames and Panthers.
