The Stars have signed Jordie Benn to a three-year extension worth $3.3M ($1.1 AAV).
Unlike his brother Jamie, Jordie Benn is not known for his offence. The 28-year-old blueliner had just three goals and nine assists (12 points) in 64 games with the Stars in 2015-16. Carrying just a $1.1M cap-hit, the Stars have a solid third pairing defenseman for next to nothing.
Benn (lower-body) is questionable for Saturday's game; remains day-to-day.
Benn missed Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury, but was reportedly feeling better on Friday. Despite that fact, he remains questionable for Saturday’s game. He has just nine points (1G / 8A) in 41 games this season.
Benn, 25, has posted 21 points (7G-14A) with 33 penalty minutes in 43 games for Texas this season. The Victoria, B.C., native has appeared in 23 games with Dallas during the 2012-13 campaign, notching six points (1G-5A) with 10 penalty minutes.
