The fact that he is a .5 PPG may get him an invite. Benoit has 23 points and is a +3. I'm sure they see this as an "offensive pairing"". If they need offence these guys will get the call but if they need any shut down defence there are other choices. For Benoit, being the son in law of the goalie coach should help.
This make me think you haven't been watching the B-Sens play at all.

PW has probably been the best overall D-man for the B-Sens since his return from injury.

FYI Wideman is probably the worst D on the B-Sens and while Claesson has been a nice surprise, he isn't close to PW at this point in time.
