Dallas Stars center Jamie Benn left the Stars' game against the Phoenix Coyotes late in the third period Saturday after a high hit from Coyotes center Martin Hanzal.

As Benn carried the puck into the zone off the rush with just over a minute remaining, Hanzal started to line him up for a hit. Benn let go a shot, and Hanzal came in an instant later with a high hit. Benn lay on the ice for a few seconds before woozily skating off toward the dressing room.

No penalty was called on the play.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan had no update on Benn after the 2-1 loss.

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.
