It seems like just yesterday Tyler Seguin was saying how “disappointed” he was with the lack of forward movement in his contract talks with the Dallas Stars. He made it clear he wanted to stay with the team, and now it looks like he’s gotten his wish. The Stars announced today that they have finalized an 8 year extension with the centerman for $78.8 million.
Seguin was drafted second overall in the 2010 NHL entry draft by the Boston Bruins where he went on to win the Stanley Cup in his rookie season. He was traded to the Stars in 2013 and he’s been a complete machine for the team ever since. In 387 games with Dallas, Seguin has produced 173 goals, tying him with the Penguins Sidney Crosby and putting him right behind Alexander Ovechkin.
Coming off of a career high with 40 goals and 38 assists, he’s not showing any signs of slowing down. Now that he’s entering into this next season with his contract woes behind him, he can focus on his long and productive future with the Stars.
