Uncomfortable questions with Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn

Jamie BennDALLAS, Texas - Because his team is not winning you don't know Jamie Benn as well as you should. He is one of the NHL's top young forwards.

In 12 games this season, he has four goals, eight assists and 12 points. He's 24 and should be the Dallas Stars' captain for the foreseeable future. He answered a few uncomfortable questions, too.

Canada or the United States of America? Russia

Why Russia? Because it’s not Canada or the U.S.

And you want to avoid a politically incorrect answer? Yes.

Do you really shave your chest? Yeah. I don’t like hair on my chest.

Why not wax it? I Nair it. Does that count?

Laser hair? I’m not that hairy. But I haven’t really thought about it.

Does it itch when it comes back? Not really.

How often do you have to do it? Not very often; every couple of weeks.

Do you have back hair? No. Thank God.

Stlouisbluesvdallasstarsrw2pvg_xnwtlHow did you get that scar under your nose? A stick to the face. That was fun. He just sticked me in the face.

Did you take it personal? No. I thought I was a pretty nice guy. I don’t know why he would do that to me.

Did you ever have a mullet? I’m trying to grow one right now. It’s growing out right now.

Do you want to do an old school mullet? Yeah. I’m down with the mullet.

Where is your happy place? Hockey rink.

Which one?
American Airlines Center.

How about on the road? Gotta be Vancouver. Love the city. It’s pretty much where I am from.

Any place in the world you have not visited you want to see?
Croatia.

Really – why? I’ve heard they have sick beaches there.

Best beach you have seen?
Cabo.

Worst place you’ve visited? Doctor’s office.

Ever been bullied as a kid? No

Ever bully anybody? Yeah. I beat him up. I was 13 maybe.

Do you feel shame for doing that? No. It was my brother (teammate Jordan Benn). We had some good battles growing up.

Candice-Swanepoel-8If you could have one super power what would it be?
Be invisible.

One dream date who is it? Uhhh … that’ a tough one. My mom.

God – that’s weird. That is weird, eh?

Give me a model or actress, Kate Upton? No. Not her. Some Victoria’s Secret model.

Candice Swanepole? Yeah. OK. Sure. Her.

What's "uncomfortable" about that article is that you wrote it down.
