Jordie Benn earned his roster spot in Dallas at training camp and he's maintained it over the course of the season.

Kevin Connauton and Jamie Oleksiak were viewed as threats to his playing time, but Connauton has had trouble staying in the lineup and Oleksiak has spent the vast majority of the year in the minors. "He's been really solid all year, really," coach Lindy Ruff said of Benn. "He's done a good job of playing simple and keeping within himself, and he's just done a whole lot more of that in recent games." He leads Dallas' defense corps with a plus-14 rating and he's chipped in 17 points in 68 contests. Benn also has 105 hits and 102 blocked shots.

Jordie Benn scored on a penalty shot in Tuesday's win over Minnesota.

It was the defenseman's first NHL penalty shot, but he said he has used the same move before in the minors. "And it worked there, so I thought I would try it again," Benn said. "It's the only move I have." He has two goals and 10 points in 46 games this season.

Jordie Benn has gone 11 straight games without a negative rating.

Benn ranks fifth on the team with a plus-five rating. He doesn't attract the same kind of attention that his younger brother Jamie Benn gets, but Jordie has gone from being undrafted and playing in the ECHL to becoming a solid NHL defenseman.

Jordie Benn doesn't feel jealous or uncomfortable by his younger brother Jamie's success, particularly when compared to his own.

Jordie Benn has made it to the NHL, so you really can't call him anything but successful. Still, his younger brother has emerged as an elite forward while Jordie has had to fight tooth and nail just to become a regular with Dallas. Jordie understands why some people would wonder if that fact would lead to him feeling jealous, "but we're so close and so much the same, that I just could never possibly feel that way about him," he explained. The elder Benn added that he not the type to compare himself with other people. "My dad really instilled in us the drive to work hard and never quit, so I just show up and do whatever they need me to do," he added. "So far that's worked out pretty well for me."

Jordie Benn notched the only goal for Dallas in its 5-1 setback versus the Wild on Saturday night.

In 33 NHL games, the defenseman now has two goals and 10 points, so he's not quite the level of aiding fantasy lineups anytime soon. Alex Chiasson and Tyler Seguin had the assists on the goal.

Jordie Benn will face plenty of competition for a roster spot this campaign.

Sergei Gonchar was added in the off-season to group that includes returnees Stephane Robidas, Trevor Daley, Alex Goligoski, Brenden Dillon and Aaron Rome. Kevin Connauton and Jamie Oleksiak are also slated to battle for spots in the Stars' top-six group. "You know who is here, who is coming back and who you are up against," Benn said. "You come into camp, work really hard and hopefully I can crack the top six. Obviously, you want to be in the lineup every night, you don't want to be in and out. Crack the top six and work hard." He skated in 26 games with Dallas last season. In 2013-14, he still has a two-way deal so he could be heading for the minors again.
