Seguin expected back in North America in early November


Tyler Seguin is really starting to tear it up in Switzerland, but that won’t stop him from visiting Toronto and Boston during the first week of November, according to’s Joe Haggerty.

He’s not coming back merely thanks to homesickness. Instead, he’s returning to more familiar locales because his Swiss A-League team EHC Biel will enjoy an extended break between games.

Seguin’s been on a hot streak lately, scoring 10 of his 15 points in the last four contests. Still, he told Haggerty that the fast-paced style of play is helping him stay prepared in case the lockout ends.

“The hockey part is good,” Seguin said. “The league has great speed and there are more talented players than you might expect.”

If the lockout continues through November as expected, he plans on hopping back on a plane to return to EHC Biel around Nov. 15.

The bright side? Patrick Kane is preparing to join Seguin’s team this weekend.
