Tyler Seguin might be out of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey because of a knee injury, according to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos.

Earlier in the night, Kypreos indicated that he would be out week-to-week, but he updated it to more of a 7-10 day window. That’s good news for the Dallas Stars, but not so much for Canada.

If this report is accurate, then Canada will have some time to figure out a replacement. During that same Sportsnet intermission report, Elliotte Friedman notes that they have 24 hours until the tournament begins to bring someone else in.

It’s possible that this was the moment of the reported injury:

Nothing official has surfaced from Canada or the Dallas Stars, but you can bet that Seguin’s NHL team will demand a safer approach to their star, particularly after his injury-ravaged end to 2015-16.
