Naturally, Benning's offensive pace reached new heights as he earned an expanded role and garnered 17:17 of average ice time throughout his sophomore season. The hometown blueliner bested his rookie totals, posting 21 points, 149 hits and 82 blocked shots through 73 games. Edmonton rewarded the young skater with a two-year contract extension in July of 2018. For now, he is buried on the depth chart in Oil Country but the two-way player is worth monitoring in deep leagues amidst his maturing career.

  2. Matt Benning 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    Benning turned in a solid rookie year while serving as a third-pairing defender for Edmonton last season, tallying 15 points, a plus-8 rating and 111 hits across 62 contests. A modest offensive performer at Northeastern University before he made the jump directly to the NHL, the 2012 sixth-round pick doesn't possess much offensive upside, but he'll continue solidifying the back end of the Oilers’ blue line in 2017-18. Fantasy owners in formats that count hits and blocks may be the only one who get much utility out of him, though.
