Your say: Andre Benoit

"I saw Chris Phillips do this once...." - USA TODAY Sports

The Silver Seven staff have given out their grades. Now it's your turn!

We finished our player grades for the 2013 season on Friday, but that was just nine jerks talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. So, we figured why not give our readers a chance to cast their votes? And with that in mind, we present our Your say series!

Andre Benoit Recap

Benoit-grade_medium

Coming into this season, Andre Benoit was 28-years old, the captain of an American Hockey League franchise, and had only eight NHL games under his belt. With an injured Jared Cowen, this journeyman defenceman was poised to be this season's Matt Carkner: the overachieving minor league player who finally became an NHL regular. That's exactly what happened.

Benoit had a solid season for a guy expected to play third-pairing minutes. Not many defencemen score four goals (only three of which counted) and ten points on the bottom rung of the roster monkey bars. However, Benoit's offensive numbers don't outwrestle his defensive shortcomings. The coach thought he was a liability at times, and that brings his grade down a bit. Overall, Benoit exceeded expectations.

Highest grade: B
Lowest grade: C
