Friday, 02.20.2015 / 9:20 PM / News

Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin said Friday it is too early to measure his recovery from a knee injury in the first stages of treatment.

"It's only been a week, so there hasn't been too much progress or setback," Seguin told the Stars website. "It's just been how it is. Every night I go to sleep and in the morning I'll wake up and see if it hurts at all, to see if I was cured overnight. Maybe I will get over that soon."

Seguin was injured by a hit from Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov on Feb. 13. The Stars said Seguin would be sidelined 3-6 weeks.

Desjardins inducted into Flyers Hall of Fame

PHILADELPHIA -- Eric Desjardins won the Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens, but he'll always consider himself a part of the Philadelphia Flyers family.

And the Flyers will always remember Desjardins' contributions during his 11 seasons in Philadelphia. On Thursday, he was inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame.

Desjardins played 738 games with Philadelphia, eighth overall and third among defensemen in Flyers history. His 93 goals, 303 assists and 396 points are second among Flyers defensemen to Hockey Hall of Fame member Mark Howe.

More than the numbers, his arrival in Philadelphia in a trade with the Canadiens on Feb. 9, 1995, along with forward John LeClair, remade the Flyers. LeClair was the power forward who could play with star center Eric Lindros, and Desjardins was a No. 1 defenseman who could play in all situations.

"When that trade was made, it was just a great fit for what they were trying to do in Philadelphia at the time," said Shjon Podein, who was Desjardins' teammate with the Flyers. "It just catapulted this organization to that next level."
