• A two-time gold medalist, Bennett was an assistant captain on Canada’s gold-medal team at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial, scoring the semifinal-winning goal against Russia. He also captured gold as the second-youngest member of Team Canada at the 2013 Under-18 World Championship, registering 2-5—7 in seven games.

• Bennett wears No. 93 as a tribute to his father’s favorite player Doug Gilmour, who also is his general manager in Kingston.

• If he wasn’t playing hockey, Bennett would be on the slopes: “I’d probably say something like maybe snowboarding, downhill skiing, something with jumps.”
