Stars' Seguin uses football to show knee is healed

by Mike Battaglino

Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin is using the football field to show his injured right knee is 100 percent healed.

Seguin posted a video to his Instagram account on Tuesday showing him catching a pass as part of agility training. The caption read, "Just in case the @dallascowboys need my services at all this year."

Seguin missed 10 games last season with a knee injury sustained on Feb. 13, returning earlier than expected. His 37 goals were fifth in the NHL; his 77 points were seventh.

He scored nine goals in 10 games for Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Championship wearing a knee brace, but said this summer he would try to start training camp without it. He is not wearing a brace in the video.

"I want to go free," Seguin told The Dallas Morning News on July 27. "I'm sure you can use a smaller brace or a lighter brace, but they say that once you start relying on them, you never get off. I like skating without one, and I want to keep it that way."
