Jamie Benn Named Sixth Captain In Stars History
?We fully believe that he will be a driving force in getting this team to the next level ? and now he?s our captain.? Stars GM Jim Nill said in a statement.
Benn, 24, has spent his entire four-year career in Dallas and committed to the organization long-term last season by signing a five-year, $26.25 million extension.
Named to the NHL?s All-Star team in 2012, Benn has become the face of the franchise in relatively short order, one of the few constant presences during the aforementioned changing of the guard.
