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.
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
