Stars' Tyler Seguin (Achilles) out 3-4 weeks
Friday March 18th, 2016

Tyler Seguin will miss three to four weeks with a partial cut to his Achilles tendon, the Dallas Stars announced.

Seguin suffered a 15% cut to the tendon after he became entangled with Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman during the Stars' 4–3 win on Thursday, and Stralman’s skate blade sliced into his leg. Seguin reportedly received stitches on Friday morning.

The Stars expect him back in time for the playoffs, which begin on April 13.

Seguin has 33 goals and 40 assists this season, second on the team to linemate Jamie Benn. The Stars lead the Western Conference by two points with less than a month left in the regular schedule.
