Seguin is expected to be on the shelf until April after undergoing a right hip arthroscopy and labral repair Monday.
Seguin would have underwent surgery far sooner had he not run into scheduling issues related to COVID medical procedure restrictions that are currently in place. As a result, depending on when the 2020-21 campaign starts, the 28-year-old pivot could be in danger of missing nearly half, if not more, of next season. When it comes to next year's fantasy drafts, virtual managers will want to approach Seguin as nothing more than a high-upside IR stash.
Seguin (hip) has yet to undergo surgery on his hip due to COVID medical procedure restrictions, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.
Previous reports indicated Seguin would need four months to fully recover, which at this point would see him sidelined until early March. With a tentative start date of Jan. 1 for the 2020-21 season, Seguin should be expected to miss the first two months of the season. If the schedule is condensed, it's possible the world-class center could be on the shelf for upwards of 30-40 games over that stretch. As such, fantasy players probably shouldn't utilize an early-round pick on the Ontario native and may even want to consider dropping him in keeper formats.
Seguin finished the playoffs with knee problems and a torn labrum in his hip that is likely to require surgery. The Stars expect Seguin to be sidelined for roughly four months as a result, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Based on general manager Jim Nill's timeline, Seguin would not be ready until mid-February at this point, which would see him miss the tentative start of the season. If the league plays a condensed schedule, it's possible the elite center misses nearly a quarter or more of the campaign. As such, fantasy managers may want to wait until later than usual to draft Seguin in season-long formats.
Seguin assists on all three of the Stars' goals in a 3-2 double-overtime win over the Lightning in Saturday's Game 5.
Seguin's goal drought persisted to 14 games, but he's turned up the play-making volume with five helpers in his last two contests. That surge gives him two goals, 11 assists, 66 shots on goal and 69 hits through 25 playoff appearances. Seguin will look to keep producing good passes in Monday's Game 6 to extend the Stars' season again.
Seguin produced two assists and three shots on goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Lightning in Game 4.
Seguin had helpers on goals by Corey Perry and Joe Pavelski in the contest. On the latter of those scoring plays, it initially appeared Seguin had snapped his 12-game goal drought.

Seguin posted an assist and four hits in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 3.
Seguin had been held off the scoresheet in six straight games, but he broke that drought when Jamie Benn converted on one of his passes. Through 18 contests, Seguin has produced two goals and six helpers with 49 shots on net and 52 hits. Perhaps his performance Thursday will help the 28-year-old center get going offensively again.
Seguin scored a goal on six shots and added five hits in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Avalanche in Game 3.
Seguin struck at 11:12 of the first period to open the scoring. It was just his second goal to go with five assists through 11 playoff games. All seven of the star center's points have come in the last six contests.
Seguin had a power-play assist in Monday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 2.

Seguin scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Avalanche in Game 1.
Seguin opened the scoring four minutes into the first period. He would later set up the second of Alexander Radulov's two goals in the contest. That duo, along with linemate Jamie Benn, combined for three goals and eight points in Game 1.

Seguin recorded a shorthanded assist and five hits in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Flames in Game 5.
Seguin set up linemate Jamie Benn for the opening goal at 10:13 of the first period. Since that duo has reunited with Alexander Radulov, Seguin has collected three assists, six shots and eight hits in the last two games. The 28-year-old center could be worth the investment for DFS managers for Thursday's Game 6.
Seguin picked up two assists Sunday, one on the power play, during the Stars' 5-4 overtime win over the Flames in Game 4.
He got the secondary helpers on two of Joe Pavelski's three goals, one in the first period to open the scoring and the second with 12.9 seconds left in regulation to force OT. Amazingly, Seguin has failed to record a point in any of his first five playoff games, so seeing the 28-year-old break out could be just what the Stars need to push them across the finish line in the series, which is now tied 2-2. Seguin will look to add to his total in Game 5 on Tuesday.
Seguin (undisclosed) will be ready for Tuesday's Game 1 clash with the Flames, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Coach Rick Bowness has been shuffling his star players around the lineup, but Seguin should still see plenty of minutes in a top-six role, if not on the first line. The Canadian center is pointless in his previous six appearances dating back to Feb. 29. His last time out, Seguin registered five shots but wasn't able to find twine.
Seguin (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against St. Louis.
The Stars likely won't be releasing any details regarding the specific nature or severity of Seguin's undisclosed issue, so at this point there's no telling if he'll be available for Game 1 of his team's first-round series. Joel Kiviranta will take Seguin's spot in the lineup for Sunday's contest.
Seguin will not be in the lineup against Nashville on Thursday but it expected to play versus Vegas on Monday.
Seguin failed to reach the 70-point mark for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. The 27-year-old center isn't expected to line up with Jamie Benn based on early line combinations in camp, though that plan could go out the window if the club finds itself behind in a game.
Seguin has 17 goals, 50 points and a minus-2 rating in 69 games this season.
Despite scoring just 50 points in 69 games this season, Seguin has an 11-point lead on Jamie Benn for the Dallas team lead. Even if the NHL completes the 2019-20 regular season, the 28-year-old forward is on pace for roughly 60 points. At this juncture, it's essentially guaranteed that he'll miss the 70-point mark for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
Seguin scored a goal on a game-high six shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Blues.

Seguin has picked up two goals and a helper during a three-game point streak. The 28-year-old is at 49 points, 228 shots and 83 hits in 64 appearances this season. He's got a decent chance to at least salvage a 60-point campaign despite shooting a career-low 7.0 percent so far.
Seguin scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Seguin struck 51 seconds into the contest, and the Stars never looked back. The 28-year-old has scored in consecutive games, and he's racked up five goals and three helpers in his last eight. For the year, he's up to 48 points, 224 shots and an even plus-minus rating through 63 outings.
Seguin scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Left alone in front of the net late in the second period, Seguin took a pass from Corey Perry and deposited it over a sprawling Corey Crawford. Seguin has come alive in February, racking up four goals and 10 points in the last 11 games, but he'll need to stay hot down the stretch if he's going to reach the 70-point plateau for the seventh straight season.
Seguin collected two assists in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Ottawa.
