Colton Sceviour scored three goals, Jamie Benn added two and the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 in a preseason game Tuesday night in Denver.

Sceviour and Benn scored two goals apiece in the second period, with Sceviour’s second goal at 9:44 giving the Stars a 4-0 lead and prompting Colorado to pull goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere in favor of Sami Aittokallio.

Gabriel Landeskog answered for Colorado with 2:11 left in the middle period, and Brad Malone and Paul Stastny followed with goals in the third period to get the Avalanche within 4-3.

Sceviour added an empty-net goal with 1:40 left in the game. Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots for the Stars.

Giguere stopped six shots and Aittokallio saved all 15 shots he faced.

Price check

The Stars have the 16th-highest secondary ticket price in the NHL, according to Vivid Seats, an independent secondary ticket markeplace. The medium ticket price for the Stars is $95.

Toronto tops the league with a median ticket price of $320. Winnipeg is second at $230, although they have limited listings. The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks are third at $212.

Briefly

• Ducks: Anaheim signed first-round pick Shea Theodore to a three-year contract. Theodore was the 26th overall pick in the NHL Draft in June.

• Maple Leafs: Toronto had suspended forward David Clarkson in the lineup Tuesday for a preseason game against the Ottawa Senators, but Phil Kessel sat out. Clarkson received an automatic 10-game suspension from the NHL — that doesn’t begin until the regular season — for leaving the bench to join a fight. The NHL suspended Kessel only for Toronto’s final three preseason games for slashing Buffalo Sabres tough guy John Scott.

• Sabres: The NHL fined Buffalo coach Ron Rolston for his role in a brawl that broke out during a preseason game Sunday against Toronto. The league punished Rolston for “player selection and team conduct.” The amount of the fine wasn’t revealed.
