Stars' Benn leaves with injury
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.

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.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
