Stars GM Jim Nill has been re-evaluating his philosophy when it comes to determining when prospects should be brought into the NHL.
Nill comes from the old Red Wings' school of waiting for their prospects to be "overripe" before establishing themselves in the NHL. The Red Wings liked to have some of their prospects spend years in the AHL before getting a real shot at the next level. Nill is seeing more merit in allowing players to jump into the league quicker though. "I've always talked about 'overripe' and I truly believed that, but you look around the league and teams are starting to go to their players at a much younger age, and those players are handling the pressure very well," Nill said. "So now we need to consider how we're using players and whether or not they might be ready earlier than we thought." We might see players like Miro Heiskanen make the leap quicker as a result. The blueliner will turn 19-years-old in July and it wouldn't be shocking to see him in the NHL next season after Dallas took him with the third overall pick in 2017. Apr 29 - 7:09 AM

Apr 9 - 5:24 PM

Jamie Benn set the franchise record for the fastest hat trick on Saturday.

Benn netted his three goals over a span of just 5:17 minutes in the first period. Bill Goldsworthy previously held that record with three goals over 5:32 minutes on Dec. 11, 1973. As weird coincidence, both hat tricks were scored against the Los Angeles Kings. Dallas' campaign is over and Benn finished with 36 goals and 79 points in 82 contests.
Apr 8 - 6:23 AM

Jamie Benn scored thrice in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Benn scored a natural hat-trick in the first period of Saturday night's victory, as the Stars raced out to a 4-0 lead. Alec Martinez scored twice for the Kings, but it wasn't enough to secure a win over Dallas. Benn ends his season with 36 goals and 79 points in 82 games this season.
Apr 8 - 2:12 AM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 5-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Benn walked into the offensive zone and fired off a slick wrister to beat Ryan Miller and get the Stars to within one goal in the third period. Unfortunately, they couldn't muster up anything else offensively. The Stars have now lost 10 of their previous 13 games, completely falling apart down the stretch to miss out on the post-season. Marc Methot and Radek Faksa also scored in the win. Benn is up to 33 goals and 76 points in 81 games this season.
Apr 7 - 1:00 AM

Jamie Benn picked up three goals with a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win in San Jose.

Benn's first goal was his 30th of the season, his unassisted go-ahead goal with 3:06 to go was his 31st and his empty-net tally with :24 seconds remaining had the hats flying, at least from any Dallas fans in the stands. Benn has posted points in 10 of his past 13 games as he finishes up strong despite the fact his team will be home for the playoffs.
Apr 4 - 3:18 AM

Jamie Benn scored a goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

The 28-year-old has found the back of the net six times in his last nine games, but that hasn't prevented the Stars from losing often down the stretch. Benn now has 29 goals and 70 points in 78 games this season. One more goal would allow him to hit the 30-goal mark for the fourth time in his NHL career.
Mar 29 - 10:57 PM

Jamie Benn scored a goal shorthanded in a 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Mar 13 - 10:20 PM

Ken Hitchcock reunited Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov during Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The Stars were held off the board in the first periods, but they managed to convert on two power play attempts after the trio was put back together. "I thought the table flipped when we flipped the lines a little bit. There was a different energy out there," Hitchcock said of a second-period change. "I thought as the game went on, we showed a lot more offensive determination, tenacity." Benn scored a goal and an assist, while Seguin picked up two helpers in the win.
Mar 10 - 10:59 AM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Both of Benn's points came on the power play.

Benn finished the night with a minus-1 rating, six shots on goal and three blocked shots in 20:37 of ice time. The 28-year-old has 23 goals and 60 points in 68 games this season. He's accumulated seven points in his last seven games.
Mar 9 - 11:21 PM
