  • Oilers' Matt Benning: Scores for third straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/19) Benning netted his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win versus the Coyotes.

    The physical blueliner has now scored in three straight contests, with 15 points in 59 games this season. Benning's unprecedented scoring run should not be considered a change of form for him -- his bread and butter will remain in the physical game, as he has tossed 91 hits this season as well. He does own a plus-14 rating, the highest mark in his three-year career.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Banks two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/19) Benning scored a goal and registered an assist in a 6-3 loss to the Devils on Wednesday.

    Benning also pumped five shots on goal, blocked three shots and served up a pair of hits. The all-around strong game brings Benning to four goals and 10 assists in 58 games this season. The 24-year-old doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal, but could be a value pick in DFS while he's holding a hot stick.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Nets third goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/19) Benning tallied a goal on two shots in a 3-2 overtime win versus the Rangers on Monday.

    Benning has a goal and an assist in 11 games since being activated from injured reserve, while adding 12 shots and 10 hits and blocked shots apiece. His goal Monday gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead, but they would need Leon Draisaitl to score in overtime to get the victory. Benning has 12 points in 57 appearances this season. His status as a third-pairing defender gives him minimal fantasy value.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/16/19) The Oilers moved Benning (upper body) to injured reserve Saturday

    Benning's placement on injured reserve effectively rules him out of Saturday's game against the Islanders, but he's eligible to rejoin the lineup whenever healthy. The transaction also opened a roster spot for Edmonton to recall newly acquired Sam Gagner from the minors.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Remains sidelined Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/19) Benning (upper body) will not dress for Friday's game against the Hurricanes.

    The Oilers will roll with the same pairings as they did against the Penguins on Wednesday, leaving Benning in the press box for a third straight contest. Although his 10 points through 46 games don't make him a prime fantasy candidate, Benning should remain on the radar in deep leagues when he rejoins the lineup. However, his career-low 14:46 average for ice time is certainly discouraging.
