All Jamie Benn

from Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News,

Jamie Benn is one of the top players in the NHL. The Dallas Stars left wing leads the league in goals with 19. Yet he's able to keep a low profile in a town where the Cowboys dominate the conversation and other big-name athletes like Dirk Nowitzki and Prince Fielder grab the spotlight.

Benn, with his understated personality, seems fine with that. He visited with The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday to discuss a variety of topics. But his comments about his ability to stay under the radar in North Texas were particularly interesting.

DMN: What's it like when you go out now? Are you recognized?

Benn: I think the people in Dallas are pretty easy-going. You get the odd fan that recognizes you. But we can pretty much go anywhere and we can have our space.

DMN: Is that pretty cool?

Benn: Yeah, it's definitely nice to have. There are a lot of other places you go that you pretty much can't go anywhere.
