Dallas Stars center Jamie Benn skated this morning at American Airlines Center and is a game-time decision for tonight’s tilt against the Chicago Blackhawks.

“He skated today and shot a few pucks. He feels great other than the wrist, but he’ll be a game-time decision,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan.

During the morning skate, Benn centered a line with Ray Whitney and Erik Cole.

Ryan Garbutt, who has a hand injury, skated this morning. Gulutzan said Garbutt is doubtful for tonight. Antoine Roussel skated in Garbutt’s place on the line with Eric Nystrom and Vernon Fiddler.

If both Benn and Garbutt don’t play tonight, Tomas Vincour is available slide into the lineup.

On defense, Jamie Oleksiak will be back in the lineup after being scratched for Thursday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks. Philip Larsen will be a scratch.
