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."
