Beau Bennett will be scratched against the Oilers on Saturday.

Through 34 games this season the 24-year-old has but two goals and eight points this season along with 14 PIMs and 39 hits.
Jan 7 - 5:35 PM

Beau Bennett scored his second goal of the year during Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Capitals.

Bennett is now up to eight points on the year through 31 games this season. Unfortunately, it would seem that the 25-year-old just doesn't have the scoring touch he was hyped to have had coming up the ranks.

Beau Bennett (leg) has been taken off injured reserve.

He was medically cleared to return from a leg laceration Monday and is ready to get back into the lineup on Tuesday night. Bennett has missed the last three games and he has seven points in 20 appearances.

Beau Bennett (leg) is medically cleared to return to the Devils' lineup.

That would suggest that Bennett will be in the lineup on Tuesday, but he's also still on the injured reserve list at the moment, so nothing's official. The Devils need to clear a roster spot for him and it wasn't immediately clear how they would chose to do that. He has a goal and seven points in 20 contests this season.

Beau Bennett (leg) has been put on injured reserve by the Devils.

He suffered a leg laceration during Monday's practice, so he won't be in the lineup on Thursday and Saturday. Bennett is listed as day-to-day.

Beau Bennett will sit out Tuesday's game at Winnipeg due to a right leg laceration.

He suffered the injury during Monday's practice and didn't make the trip with the team. Bennett is considered day-to-day and he is working out back in New Jersey.

Beau Bennett had two assists in the Devils' 4-1 win over Carolina on Sunday.

Bennett now has three assists in 10 contests this season. He does have some untapped offensive upside still, but he's averaging just 12:01 minutes per contest with the Devils.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 09:24:00 AM

Beau Bennett will be joined by Reid Boucher and Steven Santini in the press box for Thursday's opener against Florida.

We know that both Bennett and Boucher have the talent to score, but neither have put it together. They've scored less than 50 combined goals at the NHL level in parts of the last four seasons. So you shouldn't consider them even as sleepers until they prove otherwise.

Beau Bennett was taken off the Devils' top line during Thursday's practice.

Devils coach John Hynes doesn't believe Bennett has done enough to earn that role with Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique. Devante Smith-Pelly was given a chance to skate with Hall and Henrique instead, but whether that group remains intact either is unknown. Keep an eye on this situation as the third player on that first line could have a significant amount of fantasy value this season.

Beau Bennett was part of the Devils' top line with Taylor Hall and Adam Henrique Wednesday night.

Obviously preseason lines need to be taken with a grain of salt, but it will be interesting to see if that's where Bennett ends up. He had so much promise as a top-six forward early in his career, but the 24-year-old has been plagued by injuries and hasn't been particularly productive offensively when he is healthy. However, he's got a fresh opportunity after being sent from Pittsburgh to New Jersey.

Beau Bennett is thrilled about his chance to play with the New Jersey Devils.

Bennett was picked up by the Devils in a trade with the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins at the Entry Draft and the Devils re-signed him to a one-year deal worth $725,000. The oft-injured forward has always been highly regarded but just when he makes some headway, it seems like he gets hurt. He has just 16 goals and 45 points in 129 games in four NHL seasons and needs to stay healthy one season to show what he is capable of doing. He had 12 points in 33 games last season.

The New Jersey Devils have re-signed Beau Bennett to a one-year/$725,000 contract.

Bennett was dealt from the Penguins at the Entry Draft but the Devils did not give him a qualifying offer. But that did not matter as Bennett re-signed and was given a one-way contract. Bennett is a goal scorer but he has been injury-prone of late and as a result he has not been a fantasy target in pools. That could change next season as he has the capability to score 20-25 goals, if, and that's a big if, he can remain healthy.
