Tyler Seguin Injury Listed Day-to-Day

Seguin left the Stars 10-4 victory over the Buffalo Sabres earlier in the week after getting his cut. The 31-year-old had his left leg lacerated after Jordan Greenway‘s skate hit Seguin’s leg. He limped to the locker room 11 minutes into the first period and did not return. DeBoer said that Seguin was not on the ice and is not close to returning.

Over his 13-year NHL career, the Brampton, Ontario native has played for the Boston Bruins and the Stars. Seguin has scored 17 goals and dished out 25 assists for 42 points in 65 games this season. His Corsi for this season is 55.5 and he has a relative Corsi of 5.2. The former second pick of the 2010 NHL Draft by Boston has a total of 322 goals and 728 points in 890 points.

Seguin was on pace to get another 20-goal season for Dallas. His beat season with the team was when he notched 40 goals in 2017-18. The veteran centre has represented Canada at the international level and won a gold medal at the 2015 IIHF World Championships.

Impact of Tyler Seguin Injury

The Stars will miss Seguin’s contribution in the middle of the ice. Max Domi will get moved up to the second line in all likelihood. Domi will likely join Mason Marchment and Ty Dellandrea on the second group. Domi has been getting offensive chances, but they’ve been allowing other teams to get scoring chances.

The Stars have been pretty solid this season, but are in a race to hold off the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche for first in the Central Division. Losing Seguin also may make things difficult in the Stars’ quest for the top seed in the Western Conference.
