Benn, unlike many other skilled forwards in the league, wasn’t given easy minutes. He saw just 2:17 of power play time per game, good for 138th among all NHL forwards. He started only 48 percent of his shifts in the offensive zone, a very low total for an offensive forward. ... In his third year, Benn was playing a new position for a team lacking in depth, and he was producing at a rate comparable to some elite talents in the NHL while playing harder minutes against tougher competition. His peers recognized how good he was becoming, as he was voted as the second most underrated player in the league by fellow players (Dallas fans are well aware of who the winner was). From Jeff Angus' very detailed story on Jamie Benn and his rise to becoming an NHL star. This is the most comprehensive history on Benn I've seen yet. A great read, highly recommended. Read it here.
