OTTAWA -- Team Canada forward Tyler Seguin missed the second day of World Cup training camp at Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday because of an illness.

Hockey Canada said Seguin was left at the team hotel.

In Seguin's absence, Team Canada coach Mike Babcock shuffled his forward lines from Monday. Steven Stamkos moved off a line with Ryan Getzlaf and John Tavares to replace Seguin on the right side of a line with Jonathan Toews and Logan Couture. Corey Perry, who had been rotating as an extra forward at practice Monday, took Stamkos' spot on the right side of a line with his Anaheim Ducks teammate, Getzlaf.

Seguin sustained a cut to his Achilles tendon March 17. He returned for the Stanley Cup Playoffs but sustained a calf injury in his first game back, against the Minnesota Wild in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round, and missed the remainder of the postseason.
