- #4: Jamie Benn
Jamie Benn Is total player. The young star brings many dynamics to every game he plays. Benn can score goals, and he plays with grit too. If he isn’t on your team there is a very good chance you’re not a fan of him.
At age 24, Benn is the youngest player to make this list, but you wouldn’t know it from watching him play. The Dallas Stars forward brings a complete game to the ice, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, from a big hit, to crashing the crease, and even scoring the clutch goal.
Benn agitates by being very good at what he does. He makes his impression felt each and every shift, and it is hard to watch your team play the Stars and not wish he wasn’t out there.
Just like with most people on this list, Benn would be loved if he was on anyone’s particular favourite team. However, most people do want him on their team, as he is one of the league’s rising stars. That doesn’t look likely though; Benn looks to be the future of the Dallas Stars organization for long time to come. Many more years of agitating opponents are ahead of him.
