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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
