Jamie Benn has been suspended for two games for cross-checking Vegas' Mark Stone.
Benn was ejected and received a match penalty after playing just 0:42 TOI for cross-check on Vegas' Mark Stone during Game 3 and will be suspended for the next two games. The 33-year-old Stars' captain had been enjoying a solid post season to date, with three goals, eight assists, 36 SOG, 51 PIMs and a +1 plus/minus through 16 games.
Benn was activated from COVID-19 protocol and returned to practice on Tuesday.

The Stars placed Jamie Benn into COVID-19 protocol on Wednesday (Dec.29).
Adding Benn, Luke Glendening and Ryan Suter to the COVID-19 reserve list brings the total to 11 Stars currently in protocol. It seems highly unlikely that Sunday's game in Arizona will be played.

Benn left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
Benn decided to drop the mitts with 6-foot-7, 265 lbs. defenseman Nikita Tryamkin and was hurt in the tilt. Probably not the best idea to take on a monster and it forced Benn to miss the third period. With the Stars on a back-to-back, Benn is questionable for Friday’s game.
