Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn will play for the Hamburg Freezers in Germany's top domestic league, the team said on its website Wednesday.

Benn had a career-high 63 points in 71 games for the Stars last season. In 222 NHL games, all with the Stars, he has 70 goals and 90 assists.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
