BREAKING: NHL Player Safety Has Handed Out A Multi-Game Suspension To A Dallas Stars Forward

Jamie Benn didn't waste any time getting ejected from the game last night, putting his team in a tough spot right from the beginning.

The incident that caused quite a commotion occurred when Benn purposefully positioned himself over Mark Stone and delivered a forceful cross-check directly to Stone's head.

The on-ice officials didn't hesitate to penalize Benn, hitting him with a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for his actions.

Today, the NHL Department of Player Safety stepped in to address the situation and share their decision. They didn't show much sympathy for Benn's explanation and handed down a two-game suspension to the star forward of the Dallas team for his clear cross-check against Mark Stone.


This ruling from the league adds a new layer of uncertainty for the Stars, who have already been dealing with their fair share of challenges. If Dallas fails to secure a win in Game four, it's likely that Benn's suspension will carry over into the next season, further impacting the team's lineup and potential performance.
