He had tried to play through the issue but will now miss most of the season. Bennett, 18, was the fourth overall pick in the 2014 entry draft. He apparently re-injured himself in a Sept. 26 preseason game in Vancouver.
Calgary general manager Brad Treliving said earlier this week that Bennett has actually been dealing with the shoulder issue for a while. Bennett said in the report from the team that he injured himself last year and tried to play despite the chronic pain.
