Jamie Benn could benefit from the arrival of new head coach Ken Hitchcock.
Hitchcock likes to play his best players against the best of the opposition and have his team win battles along the boards, which should help keep Benn engaged and motivated. Benn is expected to have a healthy off-season and that could be the biggest factor in a bounce-back campaign in 2017-18. The Stars captain went through some struggles in 2016-17, but a return to being better than a point-per-game player next year is achievable. Jun 12 - 11:46 AM
