Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn was tossed Wednesday night for a hit from behind on Arizona Coyotes captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

Officials handed Benn a five-minute boarding major and game misconduct after he caught Ekman-Larsson with the check midway through the second period.

Ekman-Larsson was helped to the dressing room by teammate Vinnie Hinostroza and the Arizona trainer.

Coyotes forward Taylor Hall scored on the ensuing power play.

Ekman-Larsson returned to the game for the start of the third period and played 10 shifts in the final frame.
