Jamie Benn became the third Dallas Stars player to make the temporary move over to Europe (you’re gonna need a translation for all the German) today as he signed with the Hamburg Freezers (yeah, you heard that right). The Freezers are part of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the top league in Germany. The Freezers are one of the middle tier teams in the DEL and are currently 3-3-0 in their season so far.
Benn is still a free agent as he never did get around to signing a deal with the Stars before the lockout hit, but that should all be over and done with once the lockout ends. Benn will join Philip Larsen and Jaromir Jagr as Stars players to play some lockout hockey over in Europe.
Benn will need to take a hilarious photo and change his middle name to Freezer (Colin Freezer Murphy?) as it seems like the Freezers have a bunch of funny little bits they need to do.
