Dallas coach Lindy Ruff admits he didn't know a lot about Jamie Benn going into his first season behind the Stars bench.
However, by the end of the year he had a much better idea of what Benn brings to the table and how special a player he is. "But from Day 1, I've just been impressed with the whole package. It's the whole package," Ruff said. "It's his compete, it's his will to win. I think he showed on the Olympic stage, kept moving up, kept moving up, and did a hell of a job there. He's done the same thing here. He started out as this quiet captain, and you don't become this great captain where, I put a C on you and you and, 'Oh, I'm the captain now.' That evolves, that's a process." Ruff cited Benn's climb up Team Canada and his willingness to engage physically as other examples of his character and fearlessness. Benn tied for eighth in NHL scoring last season with 79 points in 81 games. Aug 7 - 11:08 AM

Jamie Benn became the first player from the Stars organization to earn a spot on the NHL's First All-Star team.

His move back to left wing during the 2013-14 campaign was a successful one because of Dallas' acquisition of Tyler Seguin. Benn amassed a career high 34 goals and 79 points in 81 games. He also received his Olympic ring from Hockey Canada earlier this week.

Jamie Benn proved over the course of the 2013-14 season that he was the right choice to captain the Dallas Stars.

During the regular season, he set career bests in goals (34), assists (45) and points (79). Benn also helped Canada win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics, where he contributed despite originally being given a reduced role. He played very well during the Stars' first-round playoff loss to Anaheim, where he earned plenty of praise from the Ducks. "He's just a winner," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He reminds me of those leaders like [Ryan] Getzlaf and [Jarome] Iginla that they'll not only play and do the right things, but they'll fight when they need to. And they do whatever it takes to win."

With their playoff spot already locked up, the Dallas Stars made various players healthy scratches, including top winger Jamie Benn.

The Stars are facing the Phoenix Coyotes in a contest many expected would decide a postseason spot, but instead they get a chance to catch a break.

"It means a lot — every kid dreams of playing in the playoffs and trying to win the Stanley Cup," Jamie Benn said. "I believe we have a great group this year that can do some damage."

Apr 13 - 10:23 AM

As Dallas has clinched a playoff berth, don't be surprised if Jamie Benn sits out Sunday's regular season finale against Phoenix.

Benn had two goals and an assist to give him 32 goals and 74 points this season, both of which rank 10th in the league.

Tyler Seguin also scored, his 35th of the season, and had an assist while Vernon Fiddler matched that with a goal and an assist of his own. Antoine Roussel notched the other.
