The Dallas Stars released the following statements from general manager Jim Nill and center Tyler Seguin regarding his injury:
"We are aware of the injury Tyler suffered while competing with Team Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "We recognize the constraints of the tournament and understand Team Canada's decision given the circumstances. Tyler will be returning to Dallas in the coming days and we will evaluate him fully at that point."
"I'm disappointed that I can't represent Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey," forward Tyler Seguin said. "Any time your country calls, it's a great honor and is something every kid from Canada dreams about getting the chance to do. While I'm upset that I don't get the opportunity to play, I understand the situation Team Canada is in with a short tournament. I wish all the best for that team and the good news is that I'll get to be with my Stars teammates from day one. We're excited to get the season going and we can't wait to get to Cedar Park and get to work."
