"Jamie Benn has proven in his short, but very productive NHL career, that he is not only this franchise's cornerstone player, but also an emerging superstar in the league," said Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk. "We believe that Jamie has the necessary tools to continue his growth and lead this team into the next great era of Dallas Stars hockey."
The Victoria, B.C. native enters 2012-13 having increased his point totals in each of his first three seasons; earning 41, 56, and 63 points, respectively.
Among 2007 NHL draft picks, Benn is tied for the fifth-most career goals (70), trailing only Chicago's Patrick Kane (128), Edmonton's Sam Gagner (77) and St. Louis' David Perron (74).
Benn was originally drafted by the Stars in the fifth-round, 129th overall, of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
He will earn an average of $5.25 million per season, though this year's salary will be prorated.
