Say it ain't Beau.

New Jersey Devils forward Beau Bennett's name wasn't engraved on the Stanley Cup when members of his former club, the Pittsburgh Penguins, had theirs added to the trophy Wednesday.

Bennett played 33 regular-season games and appeared in one playoff contest for the Penguins during their championship season, but he didn't appear bitter about being left off.

The injury-prone 24-year-old didn't meet the main requirements to have his name engraved, but could have possibly been added at the request of the team. Here are the rules, according to

To have one's name engraved on the Stanley Cup, certain requirements must be met. A player must have at least 41 games played with the club or one game played in the Stanley Cup Final. However, in 1994 a stipulation was added to allow a team to petition the Commissioner for permission to have players' names put on the Cup if extenuating circumstances prevented them from being available to play.

Bennett was a first-round pick of the Penguins in 2010. He spent four seasons in the organization before being dealt to the Devils for a third-round selection at the draft in June. New Jersey signed him to a one-year deal in July.
