The Dallas Stars have seen a decrease in production from their top players.
Last season, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza combined to score 107 goals. This year, they're on pace to find the back of the net just 60 times. Spezza, in particular, has struggled pretty badly, as he has no goals in his last 11 contests. "We need to be better all over the ice," Spezza said. "We have lots of chances, and we need to score on our individual chances. When you have chances, you need to bury it." Jan 21 - 11:28 AM

Jamie Benn scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's crazy 7-6 win over the New York Rangers.

Benn helped the Stars build up a 7-3 lead heading into the third period. Many suspected the game was over at that point, but that was far from the case. The Rangers cut the lead to 7-6 with just over 12 minutes remaining. Thankfully for Dallas, they were able to hang on by the skin of their teeth. Benn has 11 goals 38 points in 42 games this season. Patrick Sharp (2), Radek Faksa (2), Patrick Eaves (3), Cody Eakin (2) and Lauri Korpikoski (2) all had multi-point games for Dallas tonight.

Jamie Benn does not like the way he has played this season.

He frustration boiled over Monday against Buffalo when he snapped three sticks after he committed a bad turnover, which resulted in a goal by Jake McCabe. "It's pretty bad, and that's taking it easy on myself," Benn said. "I wish I could say how I really feel, but it's probably not good for TV." He has battled through some injuries again, but that isn't something new for the talented winger and he said they have not impacted his play. Benn has 10 goals and 35 points in 41 matches this year.

Jamie Benn picked up an assist in the Stars' 5-4 loss to Minnesota on Saturday.

Benn has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six contests. He's up to 10 goals and 35 points in 40 games this season, which puts him just outside of the top-30 in the scoring race.
Jan 15 - 4:39 AM

Jamie Benn didn't record a point in his return to the lineup from a foot injury, but he played well in the Stars' 5-2 victory over Detroit.

He had one shot and four hits in 18:37 of ice time after sitting out four matches. Coach Lindy Ruff called Benn's performance "OK." The Stars bench boss doesn't think Benn is back to 100 percent yet, so he should still have more to give.
Jan 13 - 9:53 AM

Jamie Benn (foot) will rejoin the Stars on Thursday.

Benn is rejoining the Stars after four games on the sidelines. He was on a four-game point streak before getting hurt, so we'll see if he can pick up right where he left off. He has 10 goals and 34 points in 38 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 12 - 12:25 PM

Jamie Benn (foot) is getting closer to be ready to return.

"He's close, but he's not ready. He's skating at maybe 80 percent," coach Lindy Ruff said. "We're not putting him in a position where it is just going to be a one and done. He's got to be ready. He'll know when he's ready, and he'll say, 'I'm ready.'" He was on the ice with his teammates Monday and skated on his own Tuesday. Benn has missed four straight games and his availability for Thursday is unclear at this time.

Jan 9 - 3:39 PM

Jan 6 - 2:45 PM

Jamie Benn (foot) will be eligible to play Monday against Los Angeles if he is healthy.

He sat out his first game because of an injury since the 2012-13 season on Wednesday night and will miss his second Saturday after he was put on injured reserve. The Stars have eight defensemen on the roster and needed to activate Antoine Roussel, so the move was made. "I feel pretty good. Just a little bit of a tweak in my foot the last game," Benn said Monday. "Just going to take it day by day. We've got a couple days here, so it will be great to get some maintenance."
Jan 5 - 9:59 AM

Jamie Benn (foot) isn't expected to play on Wednesday.

Coach Lindy Ruff was asked if he had to convince Benn to come out of the lineup and he said: "No, I think this is a situation where it's our responsibility to keep him out because he could probably play, but to what effect he would be and where he would be in a couple days would be a big concern of ours." Ruff also stated that other players have to pick up the slack and step up during Benn's absence. He is listed as day-to-day.
Jan 3 - 2:41 PM

Jamie Benn's undisclosed injury is related to his foot.

As previously mentioned, Stars coach Lindy Ruff considers Benn to be day-to-day. As for Benn himself, he's hoping to play on Wednesday. "I think it is every hockey player's mentality that they want to play every game," Benn said. "It's doing the right things and the smart things to be in or out, so we'll see what happens the next couple days here. Hopefully, I'll be in on Wednesday."
Jan 2 - 5:44 PM

Jamie Benn (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day, per Stars coach Lindy Ruff.
