The Dallas Stars say captain Jamie Benn has "reached out" to apologize to Henrik and Daniel Sedin after making offensive comments about the twins on a radio program.

Benn and teammate Tyler Seguin made disparaging remarks about the Vancouver Canucks' stars rooming together on the road while on a Dallas sports talk show on Monday.

"The Dallas Stars have the utmost respect for the contributions that the (Sedins) have made to both the game and to their community over the course of their great careers," Stars president Jim Lites said in a brief statement Wednesday.

There was no mention of a similar apology from Seguin.
