  • Oilers' Matt Benning: Tallies goal, helper Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/12/17) Benning recorded a goal, a power-play assist, and three shots during Tuesday's 7-2 rout over the Blue Jackets.

    Benning now has four goals and eight points in 28 games, which is a marked improvement over his pace in 2016-17. The 23-year-old continues to carve out a larger role for himself (18:14 average ice time) and with Adam Larsson (upper body) and Andrej Sekera (knee) still on the shelf should continue to see prominent minutes. Those in deeper leagues and daily formats should have some use for the sixth-round pick from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Stuffs stat sheet in comeback win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/29/17) Benning picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Arizona.

    Benning was instrumental in his team's comeback from a 2-1 deficit after two periods, as he potted the equalizer with 5:35 left in regulation before grabbing the lone helper on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' game-winner 4:20 into overtime. The second-year defenseman ended up contributing across the board by throwing in three shots, a block, two PIM, two hits and a plus-3 rating. Few foresaw this effort considering Benning came into this one without a multi-point performance in a regular-season game since the third game of the 2016-17 campaign.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Game-time call Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/22/17) Benning (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Red Wings.

    Benning likely sustained the mystery ailment during his scrap with Vladimir Tarasenko in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Blues, but his injury must not be overly serious if he's still being considered a possibility for Wednesday's game. If Benning's unable to go, Ryan Stanton will likely draw into the lineup against Detroit.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Notches assist Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/17) Benning picked up a helper in Thursday's matchup with St. Louis.

    Benning has now tallied a point in back-to-back games, giving him two goals and a pair of assists for the season. The defender should be able to beat his rookie production (15 points in 62 games), as long as he can stay healthy. Despite logging 1:04 of ice time per game with the man advantage, the 2012 sixth-round pick has earned a lone power-play point so far in 2017-18.

    Oilers' Matt Benning: Good to go against Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/17) Benning (illness) was declared healthy by coach Todd McLellan and will return to the lineup in Philadelphia on Saturday.

    Benning has missed Edmonton's previous three contests, but returns just in time to face the league's fourth best offense -- the Flyers are averaging 3.71 goals per game. When healthy, the blueliner is logging a mere 16:55 of ice time per outing, which limits his opportunities to get on the scoresheet. Eric Gryba and Yohann Auvitu are the most likely candidates to move up to the press box with Benning back in the lineup.
