Seguin scored a goal on two shots and added four hits in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Lightning. Seguin continues to show what could have been had he not missed almost all of the season recovering from hip surgery. The 29-year-old center has two goals in as many games this year, but it's almost too late for him to be the hero to save the Stars' playoff hopes.
Seguin (hip) made his season debut Monday, scoring the game-tying goal in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers. A six-time NHL All-Star, Seguin made an immediate impact upon his return from offseason hip surgery, with his even-strength tally forcing overtime. Seguin ended up skating for 17:09 in the narrow loss, which is exactly two minutes less than his average rink run from the 2019-20 campaign. We're talking about a player who has averaged 0.96 points per game over his eight-year tenure with the Stars, so scour the waiver wire to see if your fantasy league-mates haven't fallen asleep at the switch in picking up Seguin.
Seguin (hip) was activated off injured reserve ahead of Monday's matchup with Florida, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports. While officially a game-time decision, Seguin coming off IR all but guarantees he will be back in the lineup Monday. The 29-year-old center has yet to play in a game this season due to his hip problem but could be the spark the Stars need to track down Nashville for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. Coach Rick Bowness will likely limit Seguin's minutes, but he figures to still slot into a top-six assignment.
Per Mike Heika of the Stars' official site, head coach Rick Bowness said that Seguin (hip) is "very, very questionable" to make his return Saturday against Nashville. Seguin has been on the ice at practice with his teammates for a couple weeks now, but Bowness' word choice doesn't make a return seem likely Saturday. Seguin's next chance to make his season debut will come Monday in Florida.
Seguin (hip) is "not far off" from making his season debut, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports. Seguin has been skating with his teammates for nearly two weeks at this point, but the Stars still want the 29-year-old pivot to be "very comfortable" before inserting him into the lineup. Seguin will likely be eased back in whenever he's given the green light to make his season debut, but he should be close to 100 percent once the playoffs get underway.
