On Friday, the Dallas Stars announced that Jamie Benn suffered a minor scratch to an eye during a fight in Thursday’s 4-2 win at Vancouver. According to Coach Lindy Ruff, Benn was scratched by Canucks defenseman Nikita Tryamkin‘s glove while the two were fighting late in the second period. The fight developed because Tryamkin threw Benn to the ground during play and Benn choose to retaliate.
The injury held Benn out the rest of Thursday’s game and will also sideline him for Friday night’s tilt in Calgary. A likely return is expected for Monday at home against the San Jose Sharks.
