Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin announced Thursday he has signed to play with EHC Biel in Switzerland for the duration of the work stoppage.
In 2011-12, his second NHL season, Seguin led the Bruins in goals (29) and points (67), and was second in the League with a plus-34 rating. He also had two goals -- including the overtime goal in Game 6 of the first round against the Washington Capitals -- and an assist in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.
