Throughout its storied history the National Hockey League has seen more than a few brother combinations who also happened to be teammates. Whether it was Maurice and Henri Richard from those great Montreal teams of days gone by or the three Stastny brothers who skated for the Quebec Nordiques back in the 1980s NHL hockey has always been something of a family affair. And that even applies to history of the Dallas Stars as Aaron and Neal Broten were teammates during the franchise's days in Minnesota. For much of the past few seasons the Stars have had their own brother combination in current captain Jamie Benn and his older brother Jordie a veteran defenseman who is three years older than No. 14 but who traveled a long road that included a stop in the Central Hockey League before making his NHL debut on Jan. 3 2012 against the Detroit Red Wings. That game was extra special for the Benn brothers for another reason. While the Stars lost to the Wings 5-4 at American Airlines Center that Monday night Jamie and Jordie assisted on a goal by Loui Eriksson in the loss a moment neither of them will ever forget. "Yeah it's pretty crazy. Obviously his first NHL game in Dallas against a team like Detroit I know he looked up to players like [Niklas] Lidstrom and obviously watched Pavel [Datsyuk] and [Henrik] Zetterberg" Jamie Benn said. "To assist on the same goal Loui [Eriksson] scored was probably a moment that we'll never forget." The Benn brothers have yet to replicate that feat but in the Stars' 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Oct. 5 their first win of the season and also of the Lindy Ruff era each of them registered an assist another cool achievement for this affable duo.
