Matthew Beniers News
Seattle Kraken center Matthew Beniers picked up two assists in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over Anaheim, helping Jamie Oleksiak and Jared McCann on the scoreboard in the first period. It's his fifth multi-point performance across his last 10 appearances. Beniers has topped the rookie scoring charts throughout the season and now finds himself on 19 goals and 47 points for the year. With McCann red-hot next to him, Beniers should continue to rack up the points regularly until the end of the season.
Seattle Kraken center Matthew Beniers (upper body) has been ruled out until the All-Star break, meaning he is set to miss at least two games. The league's top-scoring rookie suffered an upper-body injury Wednesday versus Vancouver and Beniers hasn't been able to practice since then. Ryan Donato has been skating in his spot ahead of Friday's matchup against Calgary, with Brandon Tanev earning a promotion to the second line. Donato has put together a three-game point streak in a limited role with four goals and one assist, and he could be a nice short-term addition for fantasy teams. He has managed 12 goals and 20 points in 40 games overall this season despite averaging less than 11:30 of ice time.
Seattle Kraken center Matthew Beniers left Wednesday's game against Vancouver with an upper-body injury. He was hurt on a hit by Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers and sat out the whole third period. The 20-year-old has so far played every game this season but is now in danger of missing his first contest Friday against Calgary. Beniers has been stuck in a rut lately, going scoreless in five straight games, but he's the top-scoring rookie in the league with 36 points in 47 games. Yanni Gourde could be set for a move into the top six if Beniers is unavailable for the next game.
Seattle Kraken center Matthew Beniers had two points in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over Buffalo, scoring in a fifth consecutive game and setting Justin Schultz up for the game-winning goal. The five-game goal streak marks a new franchise record. Beniers' goal-scoring run also includes four multi-point efforts, which have given his points tally a major boost. He has already topped the scoring charts among first-year players for most of the season, but the 20-year-old now also has a comfortable lead with 34 points in 40 games. Beniers' goal streak faces a massive test next against the league-leading Bruins, who are allowing only 2.13 goals per game
