Wild's Jordie Benn: Snags helper

Benn registered an assist in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks. Benn set up Kevin Fiala for the game-tying goal at 8:54 of the third period, which forced overtime. The 34-year-old Benn has played in the last six games for the Wild, earning three helpers and a plus-4 rating in that span. He'll likely continue to see a third-pairing role until one of Matt Dumba (upper body) or Jon Merrill (upper body) is able to return. Benn has seven points, 31 shots on net, 48 hits, 34 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 35 appearances.

Calen Addison Has Earned The Right To Play Over Jordie Benn

The last time Minnesota Wild had sky-high hopes for a prospect pool, it was for a quartet of 2010 draftees. Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, Mikael Granlund, and Jason Zucker comprised Minnesota’s promising young nucleus. Then-general manager Chuck Fletcher hoped that at least one of the four would blossom into a true game-breaker who would take the Wild from fringe playoff team to bona fide Stanley Cup contender. All four would carve out respectable careers for themselves, even if they never reached their full potential with the Wild.

The Wild Can't Rely On Jordie Benn To Replace Jared Spurgeon

The Minnesota Wild finally got their blue line back to full strength Thursday night. For nearly a month, the defense was in flux because of bumps, bruises, and illnesses to Jared Spurgeon, Matt Dumba, and Jonas Brodin. Minnesota was fortunate enough to weather the storm, but cracks started to show in a two-game losing streak. The Wild hoped the returned health would spark a team looking to get those eight-game winning streak vibes back.

Wild's Jordie Benn: Pockets rare helper

Benn notched an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. Benn earned the secondary helper on a goal by Dmitry Kulikov in the third period. The assist was Benn's second point of the season in nine appearances. The 34-year-old has added 13 hits, 11 blocked shots, nine shots on net and a plus-4 rating in a third-pairing role. Benn will likely exit the lineup when Jared Spurgeon (lower body) returns, which could be as soon as Thursday versus the Sharks.
