Tyler Seguin is a professional ice hockey player who currently plays the center forward position for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League. He is also the alternate captain of the team. Interestingly, Tyler started playing ice hockey from a young age of 7 and has played for several ice hockey teams. He has also won a couple of tournaments and championships.

Seguin was born into a family of ice hockey players. Being the first child, he followed in his parents’ footsteps and so did his younger sisters. Let us look into the life and career of the 2012 Spengler Cup winner.

Tyler Seguin Biography (Age)

Tyler Seguin’s full name is Tyler Paul Seguin. He was born on January 31, 1997, in Whitby, Southern Ontario, Canada to the family of Jackie and Paul Seguin, who are former ice hockey players. He is their first child and elder brother to his two sisters – Candice and Cassidy, who like him, took after their parents and also pursued a career in ice hockey.

The hockey star attended St. Michael’s College School but traded his opportunity to further his education to the university level for membership at the Plymouth Whalers ice hockey team. He is a very close friend of Michael Stud, the popular American musician.

Ice Hockey Career

Seguin began playing ice hockey as a child, precisely at the age of 7. He first played for Whitby Wildcats of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) before joining the Toronto Young Nationals at Brampton, Ontario. He joined the team at the age of 13 and played there for three years under coach Rick Vaive.

In 2008, Tyler joined the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), forgoing his college education. He joined the Plymouth Whalers after being picked in the 9th position at the OHL Priority Selection Draft. His 2008-2009 season was not impressive, as he was able to score just a goal in 17 matches. He, however, improved in the next season after the Whalers brought in a new coach. In this season, he scored 36 points in 18 games, a massive improvement from his debut season.

Tyler’s hard work and eventual success led him to be selected as the second on the list of prospects of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He also played for Team Orr in 2010 and was made the captain of the team. In the same year, he won the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy alongside Taylor Hall. He won this trophy by scoring 106 points at the closing of the 2009-10 season.

2010 marked the end of his amateur career as the next season saw him kick off his professional career. His first professional team was Toronto Maple Leafs but he was traded for another player, Phil Kessel as he joined the Boston Bruins in the 2010 National Hockey League draft. With Boston, he made his NHL debut on October 9 and scored his first goal in NHL the next day, October 10, against Phoenix Coyotes.

He won the Stanley Cup in 2011 while improving his goal ratio per game and also as a player. He scored his first hat-trick for the Boston Bruins on November 5, 2011, and incidentally, it was against his former team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Seguin would later move to Dallas Stars on July 4th, 2013 where he still plays as a center and alternate captain.

Asides playing for professional teams, Tyler has also played internationally for his home country, Canada. In 2009, he competed in the World U-17 Hockey Challenge in British Columbia with Team Ontario and also the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in the same year – he won a goal medal in both competitions. He has also participated in other tournaments over the years.
