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. Jul 30 - 5:49 PM

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.

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."

Jordie Benn may play in Game 3 on Monday night.

After winning Game 1 over the Wild 4-0 on Thursday, Coach Lindy Ruff has opted to forego any lineup changes for Saturday's Game 2.

Jordie Benn will be a healthy scratch in Game 1 against Minnesota.

The 28-year-old had three goals and 12 points in 64 games in 2015-16. Fellow defensemen Patrik Nemeth and Jamie Oleksiak will also watch the game from the press box, and so will forward Travis Moen. Tyler Seguin and Brett Ritchie will both miss the game because of injury.

Jordie Benn, Patrik Nemeth, and Jamie Oleksiak will be scratched against Thursday night in Game 1 against Minnesota.

it's a bit surprising that Stephen Johns will continue to see time in place of Benn, but then again, the Stars did win their division so coach Lindy Ruff dererves a bit of leeway in this decision. Through 64 games this season he's posted 12 points with 90 hits and 94 blocks. Not too shabby.
