article imageNHL News: Boston Bruins trade Tyler Seguin to Dallas Stars

By Larry Seely     Jul 4, 2013 in Sports
Boston - Fireworks started early in the NHL on July 4 as the Boston Bruins have traded Tyler Seguin to Dallas in a seven player deal.
The 21 year-old was the second player taken in the 2010 draft and despite showing promise, the young forward never blossomed into the offensive force the Bruins were hoping for when they selected him.
Center Rich Peverley and defensive prospect Ryan Button where also sent to Dallas with Loui Eriksson, Matt Fraser and youngsters Joseph Morrow and Reilly Smiths headed to Boston.
Seguin had signed a new six year deal worth over $30 million after a terrific 2012-13 season where he finished the year with 67 points, but a drop off to 32 points this past season wasn't enough to keep him with the Bruins, despite a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Eriksson scored 41 points in 48 games for the Stars this past season and will add some offensive punch to the Bruins attack, but he will also add some maturity and leadership and that could help this club on and off the ice next season.
This was the first big trade in the NHL this off-season, but with new salary cap restrictions and a new CBA in place, look for more big deals this summer as teams prepare for the 2013-14 season.
