Tonight Jamie Benn, captain of the Dallas Stars, made his return after injury against the St. Louis Blues. Benn has missed the last 3 games with an upper body injury and he made his return with a booming hat trick. Benn’s hat trick is the first that any Star has had this season. The last Stars hat trick was April 7th, 2018, when Jamie scored 3 goals in the first period, against the LA Kings, in the last game of the season last year.
Benn has 24 goals in 62 games this season. Jamie is behind Tyler Seguin in goals this season, interesting considering their CEO called them fucking horseshit back in December. Benn has had his struggles this season between a lack of aggression and trouble putting up goals. Since the All-Star Break Jamie has 9 goals in 24 games.
Jamie Benn has been aiming with leading by example for his team this season. He has done it before and he has maintained a level head throughout the season even when shit really hit the fan. The Stars are in a playoff spot and I believe that Benn is going to kick his ass into gear in order to keep his team in playoff contention.
