Benn scored a goal and added two assists -- one on the power play -- with three shots on net and a minor penalty during Tuesday's win over Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

Home-road splits aren't always predictive of future results, but Benn's home-ice success jumps off the page. Over the past three years, the star winger has 51 goals and 110 points through 96 games at the American Airlines Center. He's a set-and-forget lock in seasonal leagues, but in daily contests, you'll want to take note of Benn's production at home going forward.

Benn registered his 200th NHL goal Thursday night in a 5-2 home win over the Predators. The fun didn't stop there, though, as he also tacked on a pair of helpers, including a setup on the man advantage.

EDGE Analysis

Skating in his eighth year, Benn rounds out the top 10 on the franchise scoring list, and is only 29 goals away from surpassing Minnesota North Stars winger Steve Payne, who played from 1978-88. Benn remains one of the premier pivots in all of hockey with 24 points in 28 games, but Dallas has been pitiful between the pipes and on the blue line; that's affected Benn, as he currently owns a minus-5 rating.

Benn scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists with five shots on net during Monday's overtime loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Benn has heated up of late with five goals, 11 points and 29 shots on net over his past 10 games. Despite a modest start to the campaign (two goals and nine points through 13 games), Benn is back to checking out atop the ranks as an elite scorer and fantasy asset going forward.

Benn scored the game-winning goal in overtime during Monday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

After averaging 85 points per year over the previous three seasons, Benn's been a little slow out of the gate in 2016-17 with just six goals and 10 helpers through 20 games. However, the Stars are beginning to get healthier around him, which should prove to help Benn's offensive production going forward. Additionally, he's a hot stretch away from creeping back up to point-per-game territory. Continue to view Benn as an elite fantasy asset.

Benn notched an assist, as well as two penalty minutes, in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

With 14 points in 16 games, Benn is one of the best fantasy forwards in the game right now. Unfortunately, his next tilt is against the Devils, who have the third lowest goals against per game in the league.

Benn notched two assists -- one with the man advantage -- during Friday's win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

After a slow start (four points through the first eight games of the campaign), Benn has caught fire with two goals, seven assists, 15 shots, 10 PIM and 13 hits over his past seven games. He's an elite scorer and fantasy option, and Benn is usually worth the price of admission in daily contests when facing a favorable opponent.

Benn did what he does best Thursday, potting a pair of goals in a 4-2 win over the Flames.

EDGE Analysis

His second snipe came on the power-play in the third period and held up as the game-winner. With 11 points in 14 games thus far, Benn is behind his typical point-per-game (or higher) scoring pace, but the Stars' captain now has seven points in his last six games and should continue to get on the scoresheet regularly as one of the most well-rounded, prolific forwards in the league.

Benn handed out a trio of assists, went plus-4 and racked up six penalty minutes in Thursday's 6-2 rout of St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Now that's how you stuff a scoresheet. Benn has started off a couple ticks below his usual productivity -- just five points in nine games before Tuesday's outburst -- but by the end of the year, that'll look like nothing like statistical noise. That said, it'd be nice to see Benn launch a few more shots on net in that interest, as his current mark of 2.4 per game is noticeably short of the three-plus he's averaged for three consecutive seasons.

Benn is in line to play Thursday against the Jets, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Benn was held out of skating Monday and Wednesday due to general soreness related to his offseason core muscle surgery but it was never expected to force him out of game action. The 27-year-old will likely reassume his role on the second line alongside Radek Faksa and Patrick Eaves when the Stars take the ice against the Jets.

Benn did not skate this past Monday and Wednesday due to soreness related to his offseason core muscle surgery, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't seem to be a serious issue, but Benn is sure to be monitored closely as he's one of the league's best offensive players, and the Stars have been ravaged by the injury bug with five forwards on injured reserve. "You've missed all of training camp, and you get in high-intensity games, and you torque it more than you would in any practices," coach Lindy Ruff said. "It's a balancing act. We don't want to aggravate what he's got going on, but at the same time, we need to elevate play." We expect the Stars to shed light on Benn's status closer to puck drop Thursday evening.
