Tyler Seguin sounds ready – and excited – for World Cup of Hockey

It sounds like Tyler Seguin has a great chance at participating in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, and it doesn’t sound like he views that as a chore.

He addressed his health on Saturday, as NHL.com reports.

“[I’m] doing well,” Seguin said. “[It’s been a] bit of a different summer as far as training wise just coming off an injury, but feeling great and looking forward to the World Cup.”

Again, he sounds excited about the experience, as he expects to see “the best of the best” on hand.

Naturally, Seguin is also focused on the Stars’ upcoming season. He believes that the team’s window for a big run just opened up, and he’s probably correct.

(It’s something Jamie Benn discussed while explaining his rationale for re-signing with the Stars.)

Tournaments like these probably get fans and teams a touch nervous about a player rushing back. That’s especially reasonable since one could argue that Seguin wasn’t really ready to return during the 2016 playoffs.

On the other hand, it’s a rare treat to see “the best of the best” compete before the season starts, so don’t blame Seguin for being enthusiastic.
