Jets' Jordie Benn: Pockets helper

Benn notched an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canadiens in Game 4. His assist to set up Logan Stanley's first of two second-period goals was Benn's first point in three playoff contests. He added three shots on net, five blocked shots and two hits in a third-pairing role. The 33-year-old defenseman is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Jets' Jordie Benn: Earns first assist with Jets

Benn notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canucks. Suiting up against his former team, Benn notched his first point as a Jet with an assist on Mark Scheifele's second-period marker. The 33-year-old Benn has racked up 10 points, 44 shots on net, a plus-7 rating and 51 blocked shots in 38 outings between the Jets and the Canucks. Benn will probably remain a rotational option during the Jets' first-round playoff series versus the Oilers.

The Winnipeg Jets welcome the Toronto Maple Leafs for a two-game series at Bell MTS Place starting with the first game tonight at 6:00 p.m. central time. This series is huge for Winnipeg.

NHL Trade Deadline: Winnipeg Jets Add Defenseman Jordie Benn

The Winnipeg Jets needed to add a defenseman before the trade deadline. They did so, but the question will be if it was enough. Jordie Benn has been moved from the Vancouver Canucks to the Jets for a sixth-round pick. He’s a decent depth blueliner, but he’s not necessarily what the Jets really needed, at least not if you ask most of the TSN insiders who reacted to the trade.

Canucks shake-up defence by acquiring Madison Bowey and trading Jordie Benn

The Vancouver Canucks shook up their defence in a pair of moves during trade deadline day. Let’s touch on the player that the Canucks acquired first. After making one deal with the Blackhawks in the Adam Gaudette, Matthew Highmore swap, the Canucks made another trade with the Blackhawks by acquiring defenceman Madison Bowey and a 2021 fifth-round draft pick for a 2021 fourth-round draft pick.

Jets' Jordie Benn: Acquired Monday

Benn was traded to the Jets from the Canucks on Monday in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round pick, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. Benn -- who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer -- has tallied just nine points in 31 games for the Canucks this season while averaging a mere 14:40 of ice time. With Nathan Beaulieu (shoulder) expected to miss the rest of the season, Benn will provide a similar shutdown style of defense in a bottom pairing but shouldn't be counted upon for much in the way of fantasy value down the stretch.

Canucks' Jordie Benn: Sets up game-winning goal

Benn notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Oilers. Benn played only 11:53 in the contest, a season low for the Canadian defenseman. He made the most of limited ice time by setting up his defense partner Tyler Myers for the game-winning goal. The assist snapped a seven-game point drought for Benn, who now has seven points, 30 shots on net, 35 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in 25 games. He only sees third-pairing minutes -- Benn isn't likely to score enough to help in fantasy.

Canucks' Jordie Benn: Good to go

Benn (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports. Benn exited Monday's win over Montreal with an undisclosed injury, but whatever forced him from that contest was evidently minor. He'll slot into his usual spot on Vancouver's third pairing Wednesday.

Canucks' Jordie Benn: Helpers in consecutive outings

Benn posted an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers. Benn collected the secondary helper on Elias Pettersson's first-period tally. The 33-year-old is up to six points, 19 shots on goal and 24 blocked shots in 17 appearances this season. He's still more of a defensive player, but the occasional contributions on offense may give him some appeal in deep formats.

Canucks' Jordie Benn: Collects assist in overtime loss

Benn notched an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets. Benn drew the only helper on Brandon Sutter's opening tally at 3:38 of the first period. The 33-year-old Benn has five points, 24 blocked shots, 16 shots on net and a plus-2 rating in 16 games this season. He's probably not going to score enough to roster in standard fantasy formats, but his solid non-scoring numbers could potentially help in deeper formats.

Canucks' Jordie Benn: Opens scoring in win

Benn scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Flames. Benn struck just 1:46 into the first period, set up by Bo Horvat. The 33-year-old Benn had gone scoreless in his previous eight games in February, posting an ugly minus-8 rating in that span. He now has four points, 15 shots on goal, 22 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 14 appearances overall.

Wayne Simmonds Gave Jordie Benn The Mike Tyson Treatment In The Best Hockey Fight Of 2021

This NHL season has been a roller coaster so far. The Canadian teams seem to be cruising along perfectly fine without a ton of disruptions and postponements. Vancouver’s already played 14 games! Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Golden Knights and the Florida Panthers have each only played 7 games. My team, the reigning champs, have only played 8 games because 2 of their first 3 series were postponed. It’s been a weird one and it’ll surely continue to be an odd season along the way.
