Benn reaches milestone in 14th NHL season with Dallas
“I think the best part about it all is that I’ve done it with one organization. I take a lot of pride in putting that jersey on every night, and I think that’s probably what’s most special to me,” Benn said.
“I call the city home now and made a lot of good friends down here, stay down here in the summers mostly. It just means a lot to be able to do it all with this organization.”
In 52 games so far this season, Benn has scored 19 goals, registered 25 assists and is a +15 when on the ice for Dallas who are in the mix to win the Stanley Cup later this year according to NHL sportsbooks.
In the 2014/15 season, Benn was awarded the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s leading scorer with 87 points and led the Stars to a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2020.
