After missing just one game in 2017 and 2018 combined, Bennett appeared in just 71 games last season but averaged the least ice-time of his career (13:17 TOI/GM). Bennett wrapped the season up with 27 points (13G / 14A). Bennett will likely be fighting with Michael Frolik for a spot on the Flames’ second line but will likely open the year in the bottom-6.

The Flames will burn the first year of Bennett’s contract when he plays in Game 3 on Tuesday.

Bennett will suit up in his 10th game of the season, which will burn the first year of his entry level contract. The Flames will not hesitate to burn that year, because Bennett gives them a chance to win. The 18-year-old has three goals and one assist in eight playoff games.
