Tyler Seguin Off to a Slow Start

Tyler Seguin stayed in shape by playing in the Swiss Elite league during the lockout. With 40 points in just 29 games overseas many thought that Seguin was poised to tear up the NHL in the early going. That has yet to be the case. Through six games, Seguin has recorded just three points and his lone goal came courtesy of an empty net.

Seguin looks to be a little bit out of sync. Whether that comes in the form of poor stick handling or missing the net on clean shot opportunities, something is just a little bit off with him.

Claude Julien had this to say when asked about Seguin and his slow start

“When you’ve got a wider ice surface you have more area to spread out and work with. Not only that, but when you’ve got a bigger ice surface teams can get a little more passive. When you give Tyler that kind of time he’s going to make plays.”

“So it’s a little bit tighter here and a little bit more aggressive, and he’s making the adjustment. We see that. It’s not from lack of will as much as it’s about him adjusting [back to North America].”

If Seguin has just been in an adjusting period to start the season, he should be on the cusp of breaking out. Playing Buffalo at home on his birthday would be a great time for it.
