Born in Whitby, Ontario Tyler grew up playing Canada’s game. He was brought up with a family legacy in hockey, which laid the foundation for his career. Excelling through youth hockey because of his speed, skill and fearless hockey sense, Tyler entered the 2010 NHL draft at 18 years old and was selected No. 2 overall by the Boston Bruins.
Taking the leap to the NHL, Seguin didn’t miss a step living up to his youth legacy by winning NESN’s Seventh Player Award, the Spengler Cup with Team Canada, becoming an NHL All-Star and helping the Bruins win the Stanley Cup in 2011 during his three year tenure with the team.
In 2013, Tyler was the centrepiece of a trade with the Dallas Stars beginning the second phase of his NHL career in North Texas. During his first six seasons in Dallas, Tyler led the Stars to the playoffs twice, became an All-Star four times, won the Inaugural Mike Modano leading scorer award, led Team Canada to a Gold medal at the IIHF World Hockey Championship in 2015 and continues to grow as a leader in the locker room as an Alternate Captain.
Since his move to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Tyler has become a leader for the underprivileged youth in the community. Partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dallas through his Seguin’s Stars charity, he rents out a suite at every Saturday home game and does a meet and greet with the kids to give them an unforgettable Stars’ game day experience. His biggest contribution to date is the creation of a ball hockey court for the children at the Boys and Girls Club of Collin County-Frisco and the renovation of a Learning Lab for their After-School All-Stars program.
Tyler spends his summers getting some well-deserved R&R at his Muskoka, Ontario cottage with his parents Paul and Jackie, sisters Candace and Cassidy, and his three dogs Marshall, Cash and Gerry. He also enjoy spending his time fishing and playing plenty of rounds of Charity and friendly golf.
But the offseason doesn’t mean taking a break as Tyler is an active entrepreneur, pursuing his own merchandise line of Hats with the TS brand. His fashion and tattoos reflect both his personality and his style of play. Tyler wears his heart on his sleeve and in addition to a family tree and the birthdays of all four family members, Seguin carries what’s most important to him at all times.
