Patrick Kane: Seguin has ‘every tool in the book’


Just in time for their Central Division meeting tonight, Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane has heaped praise on Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin.

Kane and Seguin have history together, dating back to their days in Switzerland during the lockout. Seguin, 21, has six goals in 16 games and is averaging just below a point per game for the Stars right now.

“He’s a great player,” Kane said of Seguin, according to CSN Chicago.

“He’s got every tool in the book as far as skill-wise and I thought he was the best player I ever played with over in Switzerland. Tremendous feet, great shot, can play the game very well offensively.”

Kane’s not so bad, either. Earlier in the week, the Blackhawks’ forward put on a stick-handling clinic in a game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Last year, with EHC Biel-Bienne in Switzerland, Kane and Seguin combined for 63 points.
