Dallas Stars remove 10 players from COVID-19 protocol list; Jamie Benn last player on list

The Dallas Stars removed 10 players and two support staff members from the COVID-19 protocol Monday.

Captain Jamie Benn is the only player still on the list for the Stars, who have not played since Dec. 20 due to the outbreak-related postponement of their last six games.

Benn, 32, has 15 points (eight goals, seven assists) in 29 games this season.

Dallas is scheduled to return to the ice at home Thursday against the Florida Panthers.

The players cleared to return Monday were Radek Faksa, Luke Glendening, Jani Hakanpaa, Miro Heiskanen, Roope Hintz, Joel Kiviranta, Esa Lindell, Michael Raffl, Jason Robertson and Ryan Suter.

Robertson ranks second on the team with 25 points (10 goals, 15 assists), while Hintz is third with 22 points and Heiskanen is fourth with 18.
