  • Kraken's Matty Beniers: Will miss next two games

    Beniers (upper body) is not at practice Friday after taking a hard hit from Vancouver's Tyler Myers on Wednesday and will miss the next two games, Scott Malone of Root Sports reports.

    Beniers was hurt in the second period against the Canucks but continued to play before calling it a night before the start of the third period. The rookie has 17 goals and 36 points in 47 games this season and is currently considered the front-runner for the Calder Trophy. Beniers will not play Friday versus Calgary or Saturday against Columbus. After that, the Kraken will go on a 10-day break before returning to action on the road Feb. 7 against the Islanders.

  • Kraken's Matty Beniers: Unable to finish contest

    Beniers (upper body) didn't finish Wednesday's game versus the Canucks, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.

    Beniers initially stayed in the game after a hard hit from Tyler Myers in the second period, but he didn't return for the third. Head coach Dave Hakstol didn't elaborate on Beniers' status after the contest, but there's at least a chance this was a precautionary move from the team to protect its star rookie in a blowout win that ended 6-1. More information should be available prior to Friday's game versus the Flames.
