Scheifele, Seguin battle pregame

DAL@WPG: Scheifele, Seguin play rock-paper-scissors

Mark Scheifele defeats Tyler Seguin after a lengthy rock-paper-scissors game pregame to determine who leaves the ice first in Winnipeg

  • 00:23 •

Mark Scheifele has Tyler Seguin's number in rock-paper-scissors.

The Winnipeg Jets forward topped the Dallas Stars center again, which forced Seguin to leave the ice after warmups before the teams played at MTS Centre on Thursday.

Seguin and Scheifele started their little rivalry before a Stars-Jets game in Winnipeg last season where the winner would get to leave the ice last. Last season, Scheifele won by covering Seguin's rock with paper in the fourth round, and that strategy worked again Thursday.

Perhaps buoyed by his rock-paper-scissors victory, Scheifele scored a hat trick with his parents in the crowd in Winnipeg's 5-2 victory, making it about as perfect a night as possible.
