Sportsnet did a story today on Seguin.
BIEL, Switzerland -- Tyler Seguin is settling in to his new surroundings.
The locked-out Boston Bruins forward has spent the past month in Switzerland, where he's found a home with EHC Biel during the NHL's work stoppage. The 20-year-old has quickly established himself as a dangerous player on the larger international ice surface with eight goals and 16 points in 12 games.
"I think I'm still adapting," said Seguin. "There are still plays out there that I feel like I can still make better reads. I think it's just going to keep coming with experience in this league.
"Hopefully, I'll keep improving."
Seguin seems to have taken his game to another level recently, recording a hat trick during a win over Ambri-Piotta last week and following it with a two-goal effort in a victory over Zurich three nights later.
"The last games he's coming on like crazy," said coach Kevin Schlapfer.
The trip abroad has been a positive experience for Seguin, who is still playing under an entry-level contract in the NHL and could have been assigned to the American Hockey League before the lockout.
Instead, he was one of the first Canadian-born players to sign overseas.
