Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin will not be in the lineup against the Minnesota Wild for Game 1 of the Western Conference First Round at American Airlines Center on Thursday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, FS-N, FS-WI, FS-SW, SN360, TVA Sports 3).
Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Seguin, who continues to recover from a cut to his right Achilles that cost him the final 10 games of the regular season, will likely be available for Game 2 on Saturday.
Seguin scored 30 goals for the third straight season, making him and captain Jamie Benn the only pair of teammates in the NHL to have scored that many in each of the past three seasons. Seguin had 33 goals and 73 points in 72 games.
