Tyler the Creator
Center Tyler Seguin recorded a game-high three points (2-1=3) against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night at BB&T Center and has inked the scoresheet in five of his last eight games (6-3=9). He has tallied 20 points (13-7=20) over 18 games since the start of 2019, and is tied for the sixth-most goals in the NHL over that span. Last Tuesday vs. Florida, the forward tallied his team-leading seventh multi-goal game of the 2018-19 campaign. Since the start of the 2013-14 season, Seguin has registered 36 multi-goal games. His 36 multi-goal outings since joining the Stars are the second-most by any NHLer over that span, trailing only Washington's Alex Ovechkin (53). Additionally, his 121 two-or-more point games over that same time frame are the fourth-most in the NHL. He trails only Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby (152), Chicago's Patrick Kane (132) and Ovechkin (124). The native of Brampton, Ont. paces the Stars with 54 points (24-30=54) in 58 games this season and is one of only seven NHL players to have recorded at least 20 goals and 30 assists in each of the last six seasons (others: Bergeron, Crosby, Kane, Kessel, Tavares, Toews). Seguin leads the Stars with 24 goals and a +14 plus/minus rating so far in 2018-19 and ranks second with 30 assists. Against the Predators, he has points in back-to-back games (1-1=2) and has inked the scoresheet in three of his last four games (2-1=3). Seguin has 16 points (8-8=16) in 27 career contests vs. Nashville.
