On the day Brampton’s Tyler Seguin was traded to the Dallas Stars during the summer, the words plastered on the front page of the Toronto Sun blared: “Thank You Boston!”

“Ya, I knew about it,” Seguin chuckled during a phone interview with Sun Media. “My mom told me about it.”

When you chat to Seguin these days, it’s almost like, he, too, is grateful to the Bruins for this fresh start deep in the heart of Texas. He sounds like a kid who has finally grown up.
