With center Derek Roy set to rejoin the Dallas Stars for Monday's game against the Colorado Avalanche, the team was going to have to make a move to open up a roster spot.

That move appears to have come late Sunday night (at least Mountain time), as defensemen Jordie Benn Tweeted that he was headed back to Texas.

While there was nothing officially announced by the team about sending Benn back to the AHL's Texas Stars, it would make sense on a number of levels. The Stars were carrying eight defensemen after calling up Jamie Olekskiak late last week, and Benn was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
