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.

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.
