Report: Bruins’ Seguin Signs With Swiss Team During Lockout

BOSTON (CBS) – Add Tyler Segiun to the list of locked-out NHL stars heading overseas.

According to “The Fourth Period” — a popular hockey blog — Seguin has reached an agreement with EHC Biel of the Swiss National League. The Boston Bruins forward is expected to head to Switzerland this weekend, and will suit up for his first game sometime next week.

Though it’s not with a spoked-B on his jersey, at least the 20-year-old will be getting some playing time while the NHL owners and players work towards a new CBA.

Seguin, who just signed a six-year, $34.5 million contract extension with the Bruins, led Boston with 29 goals and 67 points during the 2011-12 season to go along with 38 assists. He registered two goals and an assist during Boston’s playoff series against the Washington Capitals.

In addition to Seguin, Andrew Ference, David Krejci, and Dennis Seidenberg are all expected to play overseas during the lockout.
