Stars recall Jordie Benn from AHL
By Mark Stepneski
The Dallas Stars have recalled defenseman Jordie Benn from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League. Benn will join the team in Minnesota, where the Stars take on the Wild on Tuesday night.
Benn gives the Stars an extra defenseman with Sheldon Souray doubtful for Tuesday's game and questionable for Wednesday's game in Winnipeg due to a lower body injury.
Benn, 24, played two games with Dallas earlier this season, collecting one assist. He leads Texas defensemen in scoring with 28 points (9 goals, 19 assists) in 56 games.
