Jamie Benn Ready for All-star Game

Standard Spin: Dallas forward Jamie Benn missed the last five games after undergoing an appendectomy, but he's good to go for the All-star Game.  It's a "lucky" break that he's able to ease back into game action with minimal contact or stress on his body, and we expect that it will allow him to pick up where he left off.  Benn has 42 points in 43 games this year - 13 in the 10 games prior to sitting out - and he should be re-activated in all lineups as the season gets back underway.  (1/27/12)
