Observations:

Jan 2015: Bennett has collected eight goals over a five game span in January, including a four goal effort in a 6-0 trouncing of Florida. He should get a boost from Frolik returning from injury but his opportunities are continuing to grow. When Bennett is significantly involved in the offence, Calgary is winning games. He has 17 shots in those five games from Jan 11-19th

 

Nov 2015 – After beginning the season with one point in eight games, he's collected 12 points in the last 13 games beginning with a two-point night in Ottawa near the end of October. He's playing with a lot of confidence and having a Corsi guru like Frolik on your wing every night helps. The Flames organization knows the future involves Sam Bennett and Coach Hartley is on board. As long as he is driving the ship, Bennett will get opportunities, especially playing as well as he has been. – Joel Henderson

 

Oct 2015 – His first regular season goal. It may not have been the highlight of the night but it gets him on the board. In order to shake up the offense, he was placed on a line with Gaudreau and Frolik. They have been giving him time both at C and LW but maybe this is the spark he's needed. – Joel Henderson<
