Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn will have a fine hearing Saturday for a cross-checking incident during Thursday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

At 16:00 of the third period, Benn was assessed a major penalty and a game misconduct for a hit on the Oilers' Ryan Jones.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, any fine that could exceed $5,000 requires a hearing.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
