BUFFALO -- Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin is on schedule to participate in training camp in September after having surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder on April 26.

"Everything has been good," Stars general manager Jim Nill said Wednesday. "He's out of the sling now and I'd say he can begin training again in another 3-4 weeks. He's projected to be good for camp."

Seguin, 25, led the Stars with 72 points (26 goals, 46 assists) in 82 games this season, when Dallas finished sixth in the Pacific Division (34-37-11) and fired coach Lindy Ruff after missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Ken Hitchcock was hired as coach on April 12.

Selected by the Boston Bruins with the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, Seguin was part of a seven-player trade between the Stars and Bruins on July 4, 2013. The Bruins traded Seguin, forward Rich Peverley and defenseman Ryan Button to the Stars for forwards Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser, and defenseman Joe Morrow.

Seguin has 306 points (133 goals, 173 assists) in 305 games during four seasons with Dallas. He played his first three seasons (2010-13) with the Bruins and has 427 points (189 goals, 238 assists) in 508 NHL games. He has 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) in 49 playoff games, and won the Stanley Cup with Boston in 2011.

Nill is attending the NHL Scouting Combine here.
