[[[Tyler Seguin|edit]]] Playing careerEdit

[[[Tyler Seguin|edit]]] OHL CareerEdit

Tyler Seguin played part of his minor hockey career with the Whitby Wildcats of the OMHA before relocating to Brampton, Ontario. While in Brampton, he played for the Toronto Young Nationals, coached by Rick Vaive before moving on to the OHL. His favorite player as a kid was Steve Yzerman, whom his playing style has been compared.[1][2]

Seguin was selected 9th overall in the 2008 OHL Priority Selection Draft by the Plymouth Whalers. He considered playing for a NCAA school like his father, but chose to forgo his American college eligibility by joining the Whalers in 2008–09.[3] He struggled to begin his OHL career, scoring one goal in his first 17 games before a coaching change in Plymouth helped Seguin find his place in the league.[4] After new coach Mike Vellucci moved Seguin to the top line, the 17-year-old forward broke out offensively, scoring 58 points in his final 41 games and helped Plymouth reach the second round of the OHL playoffs.[4]

Looking for an improved start to his 2009–10 OHL season, Seguin spent his summer working on his game.[4] His dedication paid off, as he opened the season with 36 points in 18 games, until sidelined by a hip pointer.[1] His early season success led NHL Central Scouting to name him the top prospect for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.[5] He then slipped to second, behind Taylor Hall, who was selected first overall by the Edmonton Oilers. Seguin was drafted 2nd overall by the Boston Bruins using a pick acquired from Toronto in a trade for Phil Kessel.[6] He captained Team Orr at the 2010 CHL Top Prospects Game.[7] The Boston Bruins signed Seguin to an entry-level contract on August 3, 2010.[8]

Seguin won the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy, by finishing the 09–10 season with the highest amount of points in the OHL. He scored 106 points on 48 goals and 58 assists, alongside Taylor Hall (106 points on 40 goals and 66 assists).[9] With a strong finish to the year, Seguin finished as the top ranked North American skater in the draft class of 2010.[10][11]

[[[Tyler Seguin|edit]]] NHL CareerEdit

[[[Tyler Seguin|edit]]] Boston Bruins (2010–present)Edit

Seguin signed an entry level contract with the Bruins on August 3, 2010, and made his NHL debut on October 9, 2010 in a 5-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. Seguin notched his first NHL goal on October 10, 2010, midway through the third period, getting the puck on a feed from Michael Ryder and scoring on a breakaway backhand goal against Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, in a 3-0 shutout of the Coyotes. [12]

Seguin participated in the 2011 All Star festivities during the Rookie Skills Competition. Late in the season, Seguin was quoted as having a desire to model his NHL playing style on that of fellow teammate Patrice Bergeron[13].

After being a healthy scratch for the first two rounds of the 2011 NHL Playoffs, Seguin was put into the lineup to start round 3, after Patrice Bergeron sustained a mild concussion. Seguin scored a goal and added an assist in his first game, and followed that up with 2 goals and 2 assists in the second. He became the first teenager to score 4 points in a NHL playoff game since Trevor Linden in 1989. On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins captured the Stanley Cup, winning the series 4-3, and 4-0 in Game 7.

On November 5th 2011, Seguin scored his 1st career hat trick against the very team that traded the draft pick to the Boston Bruins, the Toronto Maple Leafs. On November 14th 2011, Seguin was named NHL's "First Star of the Week" for his 4 goals and 2 assists that helped the Bruins to 3 wins.
