Jamie Benn was promptly ejected from the game right at the start last night, putting his team at a disadvantage from the get-go.

The incident that caused quite a stir took place when Benn intentionally positioned himself over Mark Stone and delivered a strong cross-check directly to his head.

The on-ice officials wasted no time in penalizing Benn, handing him a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for his actions.

Today, the NHL Department of Player Safety weighed in on the matter and delivered their verdict. Showing little sympathy for Benn's explanation, they decided to impose a two-game suspension on the star forward of the Dallas team due to his obvious cross-check against Mark Stone.


This decision by the league introduces a new element of uncertainty for the Stars, who have already been facing numerous challenges. If Dallas fails to secure a victory in Game 4, Benn's suspension is likely to extend into the following season, further affecting the team's lineup and potential performance.
