Jamie Benn, the Dallas Stars' leading scorer, will miss 10 days to two weeks after undergoing an appendectomy on Sunday afternoon.

The Stars say the 22-year-old is resting comfortably and is expected to make a full recovery.

Benn leads Dallas is scoring with 13 goals and 29 assists for 42 points in 43 games. He was selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa on Jan. 29. His participation in All-Star Weekend appears doubtful, though a final determination on his availability has not been made.
