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 think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
