Benn will miss the World Cup of Hockey as he's still recovering from core muscle surgery, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Logan Couture of the Sharks reportedly will represent Team Canada in place of Benn. A 27-year-old winger, Benn went under the knife in mid-July, at which point he was given an estimated recovery time of six weeks. He's approaching the tail end of that timetable, and while there haven't been any reported setbacks in his rehab, it appears that the Stars are handling this situation delicately, which is understandable given Benn's elite status. After finishing second in the NHL with 89 points last season, expect Benn to fly off draft boards this fall.

Benn underwent successful surgery to repair a core muscle injury Thursday. He is expected to be fully recovered from the procedure in six weeks.

EDGE Analysis

Benn's recovery timetable puts him on track to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but leaves his status for September's World Cup of Hockey up in the air. The Canadian forward will be reevaluated in six weeks, at which time his availability for the World Cup will be determined. Fantasy owners can expect an update on the 26-year-old sniper's status ahead of Canada's first World Cup contest, which is set to take place on Sept. 17 against the Czech Republic.

The Stars intend to sign Benn to a contract extension after July 1, reports Sportsnet.ca. Benn is considered the best of the 2017 free agent class.

EDGE Analysis

"Jamie's not going anywhere," said general manager Jim Nill. "We'll get something done." Benn is perhaps the eminent power forward in the NHL and would command max dollars on the open market.

Benn attempted just one shot on goal and finished with a minus-1 rating as his Stars were eliminated in humiliating fashion Wednesday with a 6-1 Game 7 loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Great things were expected of Benn in this game after he totaled 15 points through 12 appearances this postseason, but he came up empty along with the rest of the Stars. While this one will surely sting, the 26-year-old can still hang his hat on a fantastic playoff showing overall following an 89-point regular season.

Benn assisted on Patrick Sharp and Cody Eakin's goals in a 3-2 overtime win Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Stars captain continues to deliver as they tie up the series at 2-2 before heading back to Dallas. Benn took a few big hits in the game but didn't seem to suffer any major ailments. He continues to be the focal point of the Stars offense and a must-start for DFS players.

Benn tallied a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Benn's goal evened things up with just 2:36 remaining in regulation, but neither he nor his mates could find twine again as the Blues took Game 2 in overtime. Dallas' captain has continued having a tremendous postseason run with five goals and seven assists to go along with a plus-7 rating in just eight games.

Benn scored his sixth goal of the playoffs and added two assists in Sunday's series-clinching win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Another monstrous outing from the captain, who lit the lamp in Game 5. Benn has 10 points in six playoff outings this year and has appeared on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. The fantasy force will need to keep up his superb play if the Stars hope to get past the winner of the Blackhawks/Blues series in Round 2.

Benn took the day off from practice in what coach Lindy Ruff called a "maintenance day," reports Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.

EDGE Analysis

"The fans don't need to worry," Ruff said at Tuesday's presser. It sounds like Benn is good to go for Game 4 on Wednesday, but just needed a little rest. He's been very good so far in the postseason, putting up two goals, three assists, a plus-5 rating and eight shots through three games. Play him as usual.

Benn scored a goal and led the Stars in shots with five in Saturday's Game 2 win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Nothing seems to be slowing down Benn as he was easily able to slip behind the defense to go in on a breakaway and undress Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk for his sixth career postseason goal. Benn has owned the Wild this year. Dating back to the regular season he has scored 13 points in seven games and currently has a 10-game point streak against them dating back to the 2014-2015 season (17 points). The red hot Benn now has 20 goals in his last 26 games, dating back to regular season play and he doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.
