LOS ANGELES_ There is little doubt Tyler Seguin is excited about wearing the Black and Gold and the possibility of immediately playing in the NHL next season.
Minutes after being selected by the Bruins with the second pick in the NHL draft Seguin soaked in the moment and acknowledged his goal is to make the team this season.
“It feels amazing, I can’t really describe it,” said Sequin, a native of Brampton, Ontario who netted 48 goals while adding 58 assists playing junior hockey for the Plymouth Whalers last season. “It’s not winning the Stanley Cup but its one of the best feelings I’ve had so far in my life.”
With the highly anticipated draft process complete and his future team set, Seguin is ready to concentrate fully on his training regime.
“It definitely feels great just to be able to sit back and look down at my (Bruins) jersey” said Seguin. “I’ll try to have a fantastic off season so I’ll be able to earn a spot next year."
Although he is generally considered a center, Sequin can also play the wing.
“He’s a highly skilled player,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien on the draft floor Friday. “We know he can definitely bring some offense to our team.”
Seguin has shown to be a quick study in breaking down opposition defenses, he also has gotten a quick sense of Boston and what playing in New England could bring.
“From meeting with them and visiting Boston, you can just tell by the people that are there already that it’s just a phenomenal place to play,” said Seguin whose dad was a captain of the University of Vermont hockey team.”
“There is so much history there with the Bruins, and the fan base and atmosphere. It’s a hockey town.”
