The Stanley Cup playoffs are now over and finally, we’ll learn of the injuries players battled through over the past several weeks.
For the last two months, players blocked shots, fought in the corners and endured some tough hits, so it’s not surprising to hear that at least some of them weren’t quite at 100% when everything was said and done. In comes Tyler Seguin, who, from the sounds of it, fought his way through a series of injuries. According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, Seguin may have battled through a knee, hip, and groin injury.
After recording just one assist in five games against the Vegas Golden Knights, and going pointless through the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final, Seguin managed to record five apples in Games 5 and 6 before the Stars were shutout in Game 6. The 28-year-old scored just two goals through 26 postseason games and added on 11 assists after notching 50 points in 69 regular season games.
This year’s Cup appearance marked the third of Seguins’s career, so at this point he understands the sacrifice that’s necessary to get to the Final. Hopefully details of the injuries aren’t too bad… get some rest, Tyler!
