Highlights
1-time NCAA (Championship) Winner 1

Benning understands how to create space for others through deception and manipulation. He transforms fake-passes and fake-shots into dangles, and fake-shots into passes. Benning shows good mechanics in his slap-shot, firing it hard and with precision. The way he transfers weight bottom-up through his shot is just so refined for a player at this age. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
