Stars' Jamie Benn fined for cross-check
By QMI Agency
Dallas Stars centre Jamie Benn has been fined $10,000 by the NHL for his cross-check to Edmonton Oilers winger Ryan Jones Thursday.
Benn received a major and a game misconduct for going after Jones after the Oiler skated into Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen during the third period of the Stars' 5-1 loss in Dallas.
As the disciplinary hearing was held over the phone, there was little chance Benn -- a first-time offender -- would have been suspended.
