|Assets:||Skates extremely well and has great puck skills. A brilliant one-on-one player, he can dipsy-doodle at high speed. Has a nose for the net. Can put up big offensive numbers and make his linemates better at the same time. Owns a nice frame to grow into, too.|
|Flaws:||Must add more bulk to his 6-1 frame and get physically stronger in order to better handle the biggest and best NHL defenders. Also needs to prove he can perform with sustained excellence. While he can play both center and wing, he's better as a pivot.|
|Career Potential:||Talented scoring forward with big upside.|

NewsBoston coach Claude Julien says forwards Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand must step up in Game 6 in order for the Bruins to end their opening-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight.
ImpactThe Bruins visit Toronto with a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. Seguin and Marchand haveSeguin and Marchand have combined for two points during the first five games. The entire line has not been great, but Patrice Bergeron is an exception because he is as consistent as they come when on the ice in all three zones. Asked if he needs Seguin and Marchand to turn in stellar performances tonight, Boston coach Claude Julien said: "We do, I'll leave it at that, we do," Julien said. "That has to come for us to be successful starting next game. It's something that's called accountability and we have more of that from that line as far as being a difference-maker or at least something positive. If we could get those guys going, it would really help our team a lot."
Seguin has looked 'nervous' playing in T.O. | 05/09/2013 10:03 AM
NewsCoach Claude Julien thinks Tyler Seguin was a little too tentative playing in Toronto.
Impact"This is his hometown and he seems a bit nervous here," said Julien after Boston's Game 4 overtime win. "I thought he played really well the first two games. In Boston, he was a really good player and here not quite as good. But he's certainly a guy we feel very confident he can turn it around ..." Seguin doesn't have a point in the first four games of the series, but he amassed 15 shots in Boston compared to just three at Toronto.
Tyler Seguin carrying his weight so far | 05/05/2013 10:06 AM
NewsDespite having not recorded a point yet in the postseason, Bruins Tyler Seguin has possibly been the team's best player through two games.
ImpactSeguin has recorded a league-leading 15 shots on goal in the two contests and has generated countless scoring opportunities despite not being able to beat goaltender James Reimer. The third-year forward expressed dissatisfaction after the team's recent loss to Toronto, saying "It's frustrating. A couple of bad bounces, a couple of plays where maybe I could have been a little more patient in settling down the puck and bearing down. We tried to stay focused throughout the game, especially at the end. When you look back at it, yeah, it's frustrating not getting the results."
Seguin quickly gaining playoff experience | 05/01/2013 9:26 AM
NewsTyler Seguin already has 20 games of NHL playoff experience under his belt.
ImpactOver that span, he has registered five goals and five assists. "I feel like I have more experience. I've tried to advance and complete my game as a forward, at both ends of the ice," he said. "So with the game I play now, I'm more confident going into the first-round series than I was last year." Bruins president Cam Neely talked about wanting to see Seguin shoot more on Tuesday and it appears as though he has gotten the message. The Bruins will host Toronto in Wednesday night's playoff opener.
Seguin is exicted to play Leafs in playoffs | 04/29/2013 1:34 PM
NewsBrampton, Ontario's Tyler Seguin is excited to face the Toronto Maple Leafs in the playoffs.
Impact"Obviously the Leafs, this is their first time making the playoffs since 2004 and the first time since I've been watching them growing up, so it's definitely going to be a fun experience ... I can definitely say I'm excited already," he said. "I think all of us are just excited to get into the playoffs again." Seguin has played well against Toronto, which has fueled the fire a bit more from the controversial Phil Kessel trade. The two of them will no doubt be watched closely and compared throughout the series.

Move to 3rd line doesn't faze Tyler Seguin | 04/09/2013 7:26 AM
NewsTyler Seguin started Monday's match against Carolina playing the wing on the third line following an unimpressive stint at center on the second unit.
Impact"It wasn't working," he said. "We were out there for the first goal [Saturday night vs. Montreal]. It just wasn't good work in our own zone. We were kind of running around a bit. I can't say I was shocked that it got changed." Chris Kelly's return to the lineup allowed Seguin to shift back to the wing and the two of them played with Daniel Paille on the third line.
Tyler Seguin moves to third line in practice | 04/08/2013 9:02 AM
NewsTyler Seguin was on the third line during Sunday's practice.
CSN New England
ImpactSeguin had no shots on goal and a minus-one rating in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. For his part, Bruins coach Claude Julien downplayed the move. "We move players around a little bit, maybe to balance things for the time being," said Julien. "But right now it's about playing your game as an individual. You shouldn't care where you are, you should care what you bring." Julien also said there's been no issues with Seguin. This move probably won't last very long.
Tyler Seguin admits difficulty with center | 04/05/2013 8:49 AM
NewsTyler Seguin admitted there was some difficulty moving to center Thursday night in place of Patrice Bergeron (concussion).
ImpactThe Bruins have played Seguin at center before and he played the position a lot in junior, but Seguin admitted it's not the same. "It's one thing being a centerman and going to the NHL," Seguin said. "It's another thing going to center to wing in the NHL, then going back to center. It's going to take some adjustment." Seguin already has center eligibility in most fantasy formats. The bigger question is how much the move and Bergeron's absence will affect his scoring production. We'll monitor the situation and update you as it develops.
Seguin to center Jagr and Marchand Thursday | 04/04/2013 1:42 PM
NewsTyler Seguin will shift to center for Thursday's game versus New Jersey.
ImpactHe played in the middle throughout his playing days before beginning his NHL career. He will play between Brad Marchand and recent acquisition Jaromir Jagr. Coach Claude Julien believes that Seguin will handle his defensive responsiblies well. "He's not going to be on the wall. He'll be low in support. He's going to have to cover a little more territory," said Julien. "It's something we all know [Patrice Bergeron] does extremely well. He's got some big shoes to fill. We don't expect him to fill them. But we expect him to go out there and do a decent job like everybody else."

NewsTyler Seguin picked up two goals and an assist for Boston in a 4-2 win over Toronto Thursday night.
ImpactSeguin has extra motivation to perform well against the Leafs, as he likely would have been a member of the franchise had they not traded the pick Boston used to select him in the Phil Kessel deal. Patrice Bergeron also enjoyed a strong game with a goal and two assists while David Krejci also tallied in the victory.
Tyler Seguin OK, not happy after Emelin hit | 03/04/2013 11:06 AM
NewsTyler Seguin wasn't happy about the cross-check-like hit he took from Montreal's Alexei Emelin in Sunday's loss to the Canadiens.
Impact"I kind of really didn't see that guy coming," he said. "I don't know if they call it a bridge or whatnot, but that guy kind of came across and his stick kind of came up on my side and that's kind of it. I didn't see (Chara's fight), but everyone told me." Seguin was glad to know that Chara came to his defense and he managed to return to the game shortly after heading to the locker room. Seguin has been hot of late, with three goals and six assists in his last eight games, so losing him would've been a tough pill to swallow following his slow start to the year.
Tyler Seguin is playing strong 2-way hockey | 02/28/2013 10:47 AM
NewsTyler Seguin is becoming a strong two-way player, but coach Claude Julien doesn't want that to take away from his offensive skills and creativity.
Impact"The one thing I don't want you guys to get confused about is that we don't expect him to become a defensive player," Juklien said. "He's a goalscorer, he's an offensive player, and we want him to thrive in those areas. But for him to become a real good two-way player and for him to take pride at both ends of the rink is a bonus for us." Seguin will carry a five-game point streak into Thursday night's match versus Ottawa, but he has scored just three times in 16 games so far this season.

Julien awaits break out from Tyler Seguin | 02/19/2013 8:23 AM
NewsTyler Seguin played a grittier game in Sunday's win over Winnipeg, which Boston coach Claude Julien is hoping to see more of now.
Impact"That's what he's capable of doing," said Julien. "He's a good player. He's still a young player. He just needs to build confidence and want to do that night in and night out. You've got to be willing to put the work in. All of a sudden, the skill takes over. I thought he responded well tonight in a game where we really needed him to be good." Seguin has just three goals and eight points in 13 games this season, but he's more than capable of going on a roll once he establishes a groove.
Tyler Seguin raises compete level, scores | 02/18/2013 9:56 AM
NewsTyler Seguin answered his coach's challenge Sunday night.
ImpactSeguin got the scoring started for the Bruins, but more than that he played a more complete game than he had in a while and raised his battle level. "Even though it's a tip that's not usually my game, I'll take it," said Seguin. "Obviously when you're not scoring and producing the guys see that you're getting frustrated. The message I got over and over was to keep battling and to maybe take my grit up another level and my compete level up. That's what I tried to do tonight." The talented center has eight points on the year, but perhaps this will get him going.
Tyler Seguin scores in win over Jets | 02/17/2013 11:07 PM
NewsTyler Seguin netted his third goal of the season in the Bruins' 3-2 win over Winnipeg Sunday.

Tyler Seguin continues to struggle | 02/16/2013 10:10 AM
NewsTyler Seguin, like many of his Bruin teammates, continues to struggle.
ImpactUnbelievably, he has scored only one non-empty net goal this season. Seguin has alternated between the Bruins' first and second lines and will continue to do so until he clicks on some unit. Seguin is not the only Boston player slumping. Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron only have two non-empty net goals this season.
Julien unsure if Seguin will stay on top line | 02/08/2013 9:37 AM
NewsClaude Julien is unsure if Tyler Seguin will play on the top line Saturday.
ImpactThe Bruins coach flipped Seguin and Nathan Horton in Wednesday's game, and the trio of Seguin, Milan Lucic and David Krejci made a big impact with two goals in the 2-1 win. "I've got time to change my mind in that one," Julien. "It's a good question. We don't want to overlook the fact that that line with [Horton] was our best line." The other aspect is that when that line was together last year, it struggled defensively.
Tyler Seguin helps ignite Krejci line | 02/07/2013 8:05 AM
NewsTyler Seguin clicked Wednesday night after being placed on the same line as David Krejci and Milan Lucic.
Impact"There's going to be some nights when things aren't going so well," coach Claude Julien said. "We all know the Krejci line has been awesome for us. Tonight, they didn't seem to be able to generate much. I said, 'Why not move guys around here and give a little spark?' It worked out. Guys responded well." The trio helped Boston rally in the third period from a 1-0 deficit when they combined for both goals and five combined points in a 2-1 victory. Following a slow start, Seguin is finding a rhythm again with five points in his last five games.
Seguin, Krejci each score, assist in 2-1 win | 02/06/2013 11:20 PM
NewsTyler Seguin and David Krejci each recorded a goal and an assist in the Bruins' 2-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Flying food makes Seguin score twice in SO | 01/30/2013 10:53 AM
NewsTyler Seguin had to make two shootout attempts in Boston's 2-1 win against New Jersey on Tuesday night.
ImpactAn individual in the stands of the TD Garden tossed what was believed to be a pretzel, or a hot dog, onto the ice during his first breakaway attempt, which Seguin scored on, but he had to do it again after the referees called it off. Seguin scored on his second shot as well and Brad Marchand potted the winner as the team's sixth shooter. Seguin scored his first goal of the season, albeit into an empty net, on Monday versus Carolina and he added an assist in that match as well. He has gotten off to a slow start with three points through six games, but it looks like he is beginning to hit his stride again.
Tyler Seguin seeks to end goal drought | 01/28/2013 6:05 PM
NewsTyler Seguin's goal-scoring success in Switzerland during the lockout hasn't translated into anything of note back in the NHL so far this season.
CSN New England
ImpactHe potted 25 goals and 40 points in 29 games with his Swiss League club, but as a member of the Bruins this campaign he has been held without a goal and has one assist after four games. He's been getting his chances with 11 shots and he misfired on an empty0net opportunity against the Islanders. Seguin will look to end his drought on Monday night when Boston plays in Carolina.
Tyler Seguin has to make N.A. adjustments | 01/18/2013 9:15 AM
NewsTyler Seguin admitted to being rusty when it comes to playing back in North America after the team's Tuesday night scrimmage despite feeling fine in terms of his fitness.
Impact"I felt great in the scrimmage, but thought I played garbage," said Seguin. "I just felt like I was always cheating because of the ice size. I felt like I was always too far ahead of the play. Over [in Switzerland], I still had time to get [the puck] and go. I know it's an adjustment and it looks like it's almost cheating, but I know that I need to go back a bit lower and get more ice. It's just about making the adjustments. I knew it in my head, but I didn't know it was going to creep up like that in a game." The Bruins will host the Rangers on Saturday night, so hopefully Seguin has worked out the kinks. He's expected to be a key offensive figure for Boston this season, especially since he led the team in scoring last year.
Tyler Seguin to 'quarterback' B's top PP unit | 01/14/2013 5:03 PM
NewsTyler Seguin is slated to quarterback Boston's first-line power play to open the season, according to coach Claude Julien.
CSN New England
ImpactHe will join Nathan Horton, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Zdeno Chara on the team's number one unit. "You've got two big bodies and one that's a great shooter in the slot in Horton," said Julien. "The other good is a good big body in [Lucic]. As you know the quarterback there is probably [Seguin], he's got the skill and the one-timer. We thought that five-man unit would be give us a pretty decent power play. We think we've got some personnel in some places this year that we think will give us more." The Bruins were ranked 15th with the man advantage last season, but adding Seguin to the top unit could develop more scoring chances.
Seguin: Report on dirty apartment 'untrue' | 01/11/2013 10:36 AM
NewsTyler Seguin says a Swiss newspaper report that said he left his apartment a mess is "untrue."
ImpactThe Bruins forward played in Switzerland during the lockout, and the publication said he left coins, garbage, dirty clothes and rotten bananas all over the place. "I was blown away with everything," said Seguin about when he first heard about the story. "I thought it was very unprofessional, but I don't want to talk about it too much. Everything was obviously untrue. I don't know if it's because I was one of the guys on the team to ask for a cleaning service. It's something I've always had and I didn't see the big deal in it from traveling and such, but I'm very disappointed in that and it was very unprofessional."
Ference expects great things from Seguin | 01/08/2013 11:45 AM
NewsBoston teammate Andrew Ference is looking at Tyler Seguin to take another big step forward this season.
ImpactFerence saw video of a dominant player when he witnessed Seguin's remarkable play in Switzerland with Biel of the National League A, where he netted 25 goals and finished with 40 points in 29 games. "Make no doubt about it, it's a different league over there," Ference said. "But if you see the kind of goals he was scoring and the way he was scoring them - he was setting himself up in good position - he was dynamic. He wasn't scoring goals because of weaker competition. He was sniping. Mentally, and as a person going over to Europe being away from any safety nets, being completely out of your comfort zone, especially for a young guy like him, it does a lot. You grow a lot." Seguin will turn just 21-years-old at the end of the month and he has the talent to lead the Bruins in scoring again this year.
