2020 Fantasy Outlook
Seguin struggled a bit en route to totals of 17 goals and 50 points in 69 games last season, shooting a career-low 6.9 percent. As if that wasn't bad enough, Seguin also required hip surgery in the offseason, which will likely keep him out until April. Seguin will likely miss at least a few months of the 2020-21 campaign, which will greatly suppress his offensive numbers. Fantasy managers shouldn't invest an early pick in the 28-year-old -- he'll likely be available late in drafts given his lengthy recovery timeline -- but there's upside to stashing the high-volume shooter for a potential fantasy playoff run.

About two weeks away

April 12, 2021
Stars GM Jim Nill said Monday that Seguin (hip) is about two weeks away from returning, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.
ANALYSIS
Seguin started skating over the weekend, and he's expected to join the taxi squad on the ice soon. That timeline means Seguin could return April 26 against the Hurricanes. The Stars are battling for the final playoff spot in the Central Division, so it'll be worth it for Seguin to return even if it's just for just eight or nine games. After all, the 29-year-old is just two seasons removed from scoring 33 goals.

There may not be a more consistent player in the entire NHL than Seguin. While he racked up 80 points last year for the first time since 2013-14, he's scored at least 72 points in six straight seasons, and lit the lamp at least 33 times in five of those campaigns. Even in secondary categories he produces like clockwork-- Seguin has fired at least 300 shots in three straight seasons and delivered between 60 and 80 hits in five straight. He's the centerpiece of the Stars' power play, can make an impact in all three zones, and at 27 years old he's still in his prime, having played all 82 games in three straight years. The offseason additions of Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry could give the team's overall offense a boost and give Seguin's ceiling a small nudge, but his floor seems rock solid.
Now 26 years old, Seguin commanded an eight-year, $78.8 million max contract from the Stars in mid-September. While his overall point total remained stuck in the 70s for the fourth straight season, Seguin notched career highs in goals, shots and average time on ice, breaking the 20-minute mark for the first time. He's the complete package on offense and as consistent as they come on the power play, racking up 24 or more points with the man advantage for the fifth straight campaign to give him a rock-steady floor for his production, even if the Dallas system puts a slight damper on his ceiling. Expect another excellent performance ahead as Seguin tries to lead the Stars back to the postseason.
Seguin played in all 82 games for the first time in his career and racked up 40-plus assists and 70-plus points for the fourth time in four seasons with the Stars, but in some ways his 2016-17 campaign was a bit of a disappointment. Despite a career-high 301 shots, he only scored 26 goals, his lowest total over a full season since he was a teenager, and a nagging shoulder issue that he underwent surgery to correct in the offseason may have contributed to his lack of scoring. His minus-15 rating was also a career worst, although that can be laid at the feet of the team’s overall struggles. If he can stay healthy, the 25-year-old should once again produce big numbers centering the top line between Jamie Benn and free-agent signing Alexander Radulov, and if the trio clicks, Seguin could challenge his career high of 84 points.
The only thing keeping Seguin just short of the highest echelon of fantasy producers is the difficulty he’s had playing full seasons over the last two years. Knee, Achilles, calf – the star pivot has suffered from a host of leg injuries over the last two seasons. When on the ice, he’s a dynamo – we’re still talking about a guy who’s posted three consecutive campaigns of 70-plus points, after all. When he’s healthy, Seguin is a no-doubt, money-in-the-bank performer who’s just 24 years old and could still have his best seasons ahead of him. Indeed, 2010’s No. 2 overall pick is one of the game’s most talented and productive players, and he has the fortune to play alongside another fellow who fits that description in Jamie Benn. They should make magic again this year, so if Seguin can stay on the ice for 80 games, a season of 80-plus points is practically guaranteed.
Despite missing 10 games with a knee injury and another for disciplinary reasons, Seguin still finished seventh in the NHL scoring race with 77 points in 71 games. All told, the 23-year-old came away with a second consecutive 37-goal season and put 280 shots on goal, good for fifth in the league. He also increased his power-play production, tallying 13 times and assisting on 16 more to form arguably the league’s best 1-2 punch with Art Ross Trophy winner Jamie Benn. It hardly seems possible, but the Stars' top man-advantage unit could become even more potent with the arrival of offseason acquisition Patrick Sharp and a full season from last year's breakout rookie, defenseman John Klingberg, creating the opportunity for Seguin to take his game to greater heights. With two point-per-game seasons under his belt and several prime years still to come, Seguin has quickly transformed into one of the league’s most feared scorers. You simply can’t go wrong in taking him with a top-10 pick in your fantasy draft, even though he's purely an offensive player who won't help out in many peripheral categories.
The secret is out -- Seguin is a superstar. But then again, you knew that -- didn't you? He finished fifth in the league in goals at 37, fourth in points at 84 and fourth in shots at 294. And he's only 22. Seguin and wing man Jamie Benn were an unstoppable force last season, and there's every indication this duo will continue to produce at an elite level for years to come. In addition, the acquisitions of Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky provide a serious second- line threats for the Stars, which might make teams turn some of their attention away from focusing all their efforts on thwarting the Benn-Seguin unit. All indications are that Seguin could have an even bigger year in 2014-15. He might even go off the board right after some guys named Crosby, Stamkos and Malkin.
Acquired from the Bruins for Loui Eriksson and a few fringe prospects, Seguin gets a chance to move back to his natural center position and take over the reins as Dallas' No. 1 center. Last year was a slight step back from 2012-13's breakout, but there is still lots to like about the 21-year-old phenom. He should flourish in a less pressure-filled environment with the Stars and gives Dallas a cornerstone to build around.
As a second-year player, the dynamic Seguin ended up leading the Bruins in both goals (29) and points (67) in 81 games, while recording a plus-34 rating. Heading into the 2012-13 season, the future is bright (with an arrow pointing up with regards to his fantasy prospects) for the electric Seguin, who possesses game-changing speed and a laser shot. Seguin had surgery to repair a dislocated tendon on his middle finger this offseason, but he should be 100 percent to start the season and poised to take the next step in terms of production at the NHL level.
While Seguin scored just 22 points in 74 regular season games as a rookie, he flashed signs of future stardom with occasional displays of his blazing speed and laser shot. Expect an increase in production from him this coming season, but superstardom may have to wait just a bit as the second overall pick in the 2010 draft continues to mature both physically and as a player.
The long-term scouting report on Seguin, the second overall pick in the 2010 NHL entry draft, is a pretty good one. He has top-end speed, is a sublime passer, has great hands and his hockey sense is among the best in this year's draft class. Not only does he have plenty of scoring upside, he’ll also definitely make the guys around him better and he's a coveted right-hand centerman. Already under contract, he can now focus on his goal of cracking the Bruins' roster come training camp. Odds are that he will, and while his future is bright, the Bruins' current depth at center -- some would call it a glut of talent -- makes it a little difficult at this time to project his exact role out of the gate. He may even start his NHL career as a winger if Marc Savard isn't dealt, but while he's not going to hit his peak production out of the gate, it's not hard to imagine Seguin averaging a point every other game, while giving us glimpses of his future offensive prowess.
