Dallas has started discussing a new deal with Jamie Benn.

"We sat down, his future is something we've already talked about ... started that process," said GM Jim Nill. "It's no secret he's the leader here, and we're going to figure it out." He can sign an extension on July 1, which would prevent him from going to unrestricted free agency at the end of next year.

Mike Heika thinks an eight-year, $80 million extension is in the range of what Jamie Benn will get.

That would mirror Anze Kopitar's current contract. While Benn still has a season left on his current five year, $26.25 million deal, he will be eligible to sign an extension this summer. After finishing with at least 34 goals and 79 points in each of his last three seasons, he's fully expected to get a massive payday.

Jamie Benn has one year left on his contract and he would like to get an extension done over the summer.

"Going into the last year of your contract, you don't want it to be a distraction for your team," said Benn, who can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2016-17 season. "I'll let Jim (Nill) and my agent try to figure that out." He added that Dallas is where he wants to be. Nill intends to speak with Benn and his agent, Rich Evans, soon. Benn earned a nomination for the Hart Trophy last week and could get something similar to Anze Kopitar's eight-year, $80 million deal.

Plus, he set new career highs with 41 goals and 89 points while skating in all 82 games. Should Benn bring home the trophy, he'll be the first player in Stars history to do so.

Jamie Benn has been nominated for the Ted Lindsay Award by his fellow PA members.

The award is given to "the most outstanding player in the NHL" as voted on by the players, and is the only award the players vote on. Benn had a second straight career best season, posting 41 goals and 89 points. This is his second straight season nominated for the award as well, and no Stars player has ever won it.

May 6 - 8:10 AM

Jamie Benn and the Stars were a force to be reckoned with on the power play this season, but they haven't scored on 11 attempts against St. Louis in Round 2 of the playoffs.

Benn tied for second in the NHL in both scoring and power-play goals during the regular season. He also leads all skaters in scoring during the playoffs with 12 points in nine games, but he has posted just two points with the man advantage.
May 5 - 8:40 AM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-3 OT loss to St. Louis in Game 2.

Benn picked up the primary assist on Alex Goligoski's first period goal. The Stars captain added the game-tying goal with under three minutes remaining in regulation. Unfortunately for the Stars, they weren't able to get the job done in OT, as David Backes scored for the Blues. Benn has five goals and 12 points in eight playoff games in 2016. The series will head to St. Louis with each team having won one game. Game 3 goes Tuesday night.
May 1 - 7:16 PM

Jamie Benn has scored in every Stars' playoff game so far.

Six games and a league-leading 10 points with four goals, and a pair of three-point efforts so far. All told in his career, Benn has posted eight goals and 15 points in 12 playoff games. It's worth noting that second round opponent Brian Elliott kept Jonathan Toews, Artemi Panarin, and Patrick Kane to just three goals in seven games.
Apr 26 - 9:10 PM

Jamie Benn enjoyed a three-point afternoon Sunday as the Stars knocked off the Wild with a 5-4 win in Game 6.

He had a goal and two assists. Benn doesn’t care where he plays, who he plays with or whether buddy Tyler Seguin is in the lineup. He’ll produce. Benn had at least a point in each game of this series. In total, he had four goals and 10 points in the series. Jason Spezza (goal, three assists), Patrick Sharp (goal, assist), John Klingberg and Alex Goligoski got the other goals.

Jamie Benn extended his scoring streak to five games with his third goal of the series on Friday night in Game 5.

The Stars' captain is now up to seven points thus far in the playoffs. He'll have a chance to continue his ways and lead the Stars to the second round on Sunday.
Apr 23 - 1:18 AM

Jamie Benn had a maintenance day, so he didn't take part in Tuesday's skate.

Coach Lindy Ruff insisted that there wasn't anything wrong with Benn, who has picked up at least one point in each game against Minnesota in the opening round of the playoffs. The Stars captain has two goals and three assists in three games.
Apr 19 - 4:30 PM

Jamie Benn scored in the Stars’ 2-1 Game 2 win against the Wild on Saturday night.

Benn tallied a goal at 10:23 of the third period, giving him two goals and four points during these playoffs. In his career, Benn has six goals and nine points. So whatever the stage, he will produce. Antoine Roussel potted the other goal, while Cody Eakin and Ales Hemsky got helpers. The Stars’ offense is just too much to handle for the Wild, whose best hope is a lucky bounce here or there on offense, and Devan Dubnyk pitching a shutout.
Apr 16 - 11:43 PM

Jamie Benn led the Stars to victory in Thursday's 4-0 Game 1 win over Minnesota.

Coming in, Benn had posted four goals and five points in six career playoff games. Tonight he added a goal and two assists to that total, including a power play assist and an empty netter to help seal the deal.
