Benn was known as a good player, but he elevated his game when put on a line with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.  He only scored 2 goals in the tournament, but both were game winners.  Everyone knew he was good, but not sure anyone really knew just how good he could be.  His size, strength and pursuit of the puck made people take notice and shows why he forced his way on the team despite not being invited to the summer orientation camp.
