The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Jordie Benn from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a 2017 fourth-round pick.

Benn is just in the first season of a three-year, $3.3 million deal, but the Stars might have lost him in the expansion draft if they didn't trade him. Benn has two goals and 15 points in 58 contests this season. He'll likely be a third-pairing defenseman with Montreal.
Feb 27 - 5:15 PM

Jordie Benn went into the All-Star break with two goals and 13 points in 46 contests.

That's one more point than Benn had in the 64 games he participated in during the 2015-16 campaign. The 29-year-old defenseman is also averaging 18:50 minutes per contest, which is up from just 15:39 minutes last season. Going forward, he might break his career-high of 20 points before the campaign is done.

Jordie Benn scored his second goal of the season during Saturday's 3-1 win over the flyers.

The tally gives him nine points on the season, and three points over his last three games. Could he be heating up? Not likely. Benn has crossed the 20-point plateau just once.

After getting a game off, Jordie Benn will return to Dallas' blue line against Columbus on Saturday night.

Benn's put up nice numbers thus far, posting two helpers with three hits, four PIMs, and six blocks in just two game. So we'd insert him back into your lineup if you had him in the first place.

Jordie Benn and Patrik Nemeth will be scratched from Thursday's match with the Kings.

Benn's put up nice numbers thus far, posting two helpers with three hits, four PIMs, and six blocks in just two games. Nemeth hasn't been quite that productive, with three hits and blocks in two games.

Jordie Benn probably won't be guaranteed a top-six defense spot on Dallas going into 2016-17.

The Stars want to play younger players like Stephen Johns, Esa Lindell and Patrik Nemeth. The other three spots belong to John Klingberg, Johnny Oduya and Dan Hamhuis. Benn could be an insurance defender going into the year if he can't beat out Nemeth for the last spot.

Jordie Benn's new three-year contract is worth $3.3 million.

Benn's new $1.1 million cap hit is an increase from the $700K he was earning annually as part of his old deal. He had three goals and 12 points in 64 games in 2015-16. The 28-year-old (he'll turn 29 on July 26) is likely to produce similar results next season.

Jordie Benn has inked a three-year contract extension with the Dallas Stars.

The Stars didn't release the financial terms of the deal, but his old contract was a three-year, $2.1 million deal and while this new agreement might be more lucrative, we don't imagine it's significantly more. Benn had three goals and 12 points in 64 contests in 2015-16 while averaging 15:39 minutes per contest.

Jordie Benn appeared in just one game for the Stars during the playoffs and could be permitted to walk as an unrestricted free agent.

He was surpassed by Stephen Johns on the depth chart and the Stars could give larger roles to Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleksiak next season. Esa Lindell may be a candidate for an increased as well. Those defenders will give the Stars plenty of think about this off-season along with pending UFAs Alex Goligoski, Jason Demers and Kris Russell.

Jordie Benn will continue to lead Dallas' scratches in Friday's Game 5 against Minnesota.

Benn will be joined by Travis Moen, Patrik Nemeth, Jamie Oleksiak, and the injured (Achilles) Tyler Seguin. Outside of the latter, there isn't much value to speak of unfortunately.

Jordie Benn won't be in the lineup for Game 4 on Wednesday when the Wild host the Stars.

Benn skated in warmups, but has been scratched to facilitate the return of Kris Russell to the lineup. Keeping the blueliner company will be Travis Moen, Jamie Oleksiak and Patrik Nemeth.

Look for Jordie Benn to make his 2016 postseason debut in Game 3 against Minnesota on Monday.

Benn will get into the lineup because Kris Russell is out with an illness. "Jordie, for most of the year, has been in one of those top six [spots]," head coach Lindy Ruff said. "Obviously [it's] tough to sit outside because even the last couple of games [during the regular season] he played really well for us. It's an opportunity for him to step back in and be a difference maker for us."
