The Dallas Stars are working diligently on the paperwork to make Jamie Benn eligible to play on Monday night.
"I know Mark Janko [of Stars hockey operations] is working on it, and he's probably working his butt off," Benn said. "I am going to find out later in the afternoon." The Stars are trying to get his work visa cleared, but he's expected to be in the lineup for his season debut if everything goes smoothly. Look for him to play between Loui Eriksson and Jaromir Jagr if he gets the nod to play.
