Seguin’s surgery delayed
“We anticipate he’s having it next week,” Stars general manager Jim Nill said Thursday. “Because of the (coronavirus) pandemic, where he’s having the surgery, there are certain restrictions, so we’ve had to work around some of those things. Some surgeries have been canceled, so he hasn’t had it yet. We’ll have another call here, I hope, next week, and I can update everyone on things moving forward.”
He’s expected to be out for four months after the surgery.

He cares about his game; he takes care of himself and he’s constantly works on his shot. He definitely holds himself accountable. When you put those things together, you’re bound to have success.”
