Benn out due to appendectomy

Stars forward Jamie Benn is expected to miss up to two weeks out action after undergoing an appendectomy, the Dallas News reports.

Already without center Mike Ribeiro, who is likely to be sidelined until after All-Star weekend with an MCL tear, the club will have to face the upcoming weeks without two of their leading scorers.

Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk mentioned that the team is going on a day-to-day basis with the news and won't jump to any conclusions or make any sudden moves to improve the club's chances to win their upcoming five games before the All-Star Break.

"We feel we have the players here top handle it, but we'll look at every option and see what we can do," Nieuwendyk told the News. "It'll be tough, but the players here have to step up and help. The players here have to be able to do a little more."

In 43 games with the Stars this season, Benn has tallied 13 goals and 29 assists for 42 points.

The 22-year-old has been selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game, which will be held on Jan. 29 in Ottawa, and could still take part in the event.
