Vince Benson is a Canadian SHL player, and is the captain of the Benton Bruisers. He is known for being the best defensive player, or defenceman of the league, widely regarded as such. He is known for his fierce grit, excellent defensive positioning and play, and for his high scoring potential. During the 2012-2013 Season, Vince captained the Bruisers to the SHL Cup final, where despite Benton's superior defence, they were outmatched by the Kimberly Knights, losing 4-2.
Along with Denis Durgman, him and Vince are known as the Two Towers of Benton. Vince is currently the highest rated defenceman in the league, at 94 overall.
Vince has won the Iron Fist Trophy four times, tied with Gustav Magerkoff. The two are comparable in this regard; though Gustav has won more SHL Cups, Vince is credited as "the greatest defender" due to his solid "carry-on-the-back" games he had where it was described as defending an entire mass of players at once. Vince also has scored the most goals of any defenceman, and has the most for a single season - 46, which has yet to be broken, and he has done this two years in a row. He is also the only defenceman in the league to record 100 points or more in a single season.
