Jamie Benn’s Violent Cross Check Leads to Early Ejection in Game Three

Jamie Benn was sent off for an atrocious takedown and crosscheck against Mark Stone of Vegas less than three minutes into the Stars’ first home playoff game of the third round.

Benn might be subject to additional penalties from the department of player safety in addition to receiving a five minute major and a game misconduct for the play.

It’s a play that merely cranks up the hostility to intolerable levels with obvious injury intent. If the department of player safety is even remotely competent, Benn will receive a severe punishment in addition to a suspension to deter such dangerous moves.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
