Seguin (heel) is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Sequin sustained a hairline fracture in his heel that forced him out of the World Cup of Hockey but evidently it wasn't too serious. With Dallas' season opener still several weeks away, that should be enough time for the 24-year-old center to return to full strength.
Seguin injured his heel when he slid feet first into the end boards during an exhibition game against Team USA. Since the end of last season, the three-time All-Star has suffered injuries to his Achilles, calf and heel. Fantasy owners need him healthy this season, as he's hugely valuable on the top line and top power-play unit alongside Jamie Benn and Patrick Sharp.
With the NHL season still a month away, the 24-year-old center still has time to fully recover. Seguin was forced to withdraw from the World Cup of Hockey due to an ankle injury but it's not clear at this point if his latest setback is related to the ailment.
Seguin is dealing with a knee injury and is not expected to be able to play for Canada during the World Cup of Hockey, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports.
Seguin's knee injury reportedly isn't anything serious and he's only expected to need around 7-to-10 days off of skates for additional recovery. However, that projected timeline is a tough blow for Canada, as it essentially rules Seguin out of playing contention for the World Cup of hockey. Canada will likely have to bring in another player to take his spot on the roster, although nothing has been released at this point in time.
Seguin only missed one World Cup practice due to the illness and should be fine moving forward.
