Jordie Benn appears to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game at Ottawa.

David Schlemko will get to play in his fourth game with the Stars. "I want to keep everybody up and running," coach Lindy Ruff said. "We've got seven, and I want to keep [Jamie] Oleksiak in the mix. I don't want him sitting too long. I thought he had a couple of rough outings before I sat him out, and I'd like to see how he responds. In Schlemko's case, I haven't played him a lot, I'd like to see him in back-to-backs and see if he can build a little momentum in his game."

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.
