Talent Analysis

A skilled offensive player who is equally adept at scoring goals as well as setting them up.  His defensive game is fairly well-developed, as well, and he plays in all situations.  Seguin is the kind of player you can build a team around.

 

Future

Seguin was dealt by the Boston Bruins to the Dallas Stars in the deal that sent Loui Eriksson and three other players to the Bruins. He has developed into a top offensive threat at the NHL level.
