Seguin excited to open new chapter with Stars

Wednesday, 09.11.2013 / 3:00 AM / 2013-2014 Season Preview

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Just days before starting his first training camp with the Dallas Stars, Tyler Seguin sat aboard a Dallas-bound flight and tried something for the first time in more than a year.

He put on the Stanley Cup ring he won with the Boston Bruins in 2011.

Maybe it was boredom that compelled him to slip the championship ring onto his finger, maybe it was nostalgia. Either way, it brought back vivid memories just days before starting a new chapter in his career.

"I was bringing it to Dallas. I wouldn't put it in my luggage, so I just travelled with it," Seguin told NHL.com. "I took it out for the first time. It just gives you that feeling … it's almost like you put on something and you flash back to everything, how great it felt."

Captain picks: Choosing who will wear the 'C'

Tuesday, 09.10.2013 / 12:15 PM / 2013-2014 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Unlike other professional sports, the role of captain on an NHL team actually is an important one -- it's even spelled out in the rule book.

Rule 6.1 states: "One Captain shall be appointed by each team, and he alone shall have the privilege of discussing with the Referee any questions relating to interpretation of rules which may arise during the progress of a game."

In addition to the captaincy holding a defined role, there are other, intangible parts of the job. It's the captain who is seen as the team leader, counted on to be accountable to the media and in most cases the public face of the franchise as well as a link between the coach and players.

Seven things to watch for in the NHL preseason

Monday, 09.09.2013 / 5:45 PM / 2013-2014 Season Preview

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

With training camps opening across the National Hockey League, every team is a potential Stanley Cup winner and every player is primed for a potential career season. But between new personnel and battles for roster spots, here are some of the main questions fans across the League will be asking.

Who earns the open spot on the Ducks' top line?

When the Anaheim Ducks traded forward Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators during the summer, they opened a spot on the team's top line alongside All-Stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. That right wing spot hasn't been filled yet, although coach Bruce Boudreau will have an interesting group to choose from, including 2010 first-round pick Emerson Etem and future Hall of Famer Teemu Selanne.

"I thought it was a good move," Getzlaf told NHL.com of the Ryan deal. "We got our kids who played really well last year and got some good experience. We're looking for more things out of them this year."

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
