Seguin won't return to Swiss team
By QMI Agency
Tyler Seguin's season in Switzerland will end when the Spengler Cup does.
The Boston Bruins forward, who has been playing with EHC Biel of the Swiss League during the NHL lockout but donned a Team Canada jersey for the annual tournament in Davos, has opted to not renew his contract when it expires Monday, the team said in a brief statement on its website.
"We thank Tyler for many magic moments, 25 important goals ... and wish him all the best and every success in the NHL!" the statement said.
Seguin had 25 goals and 15 assists in 29 games with Biel, good for third place in the league scoring race. Damien Brunner of EV Zug leads with 53 points, followed by Glen Metropolit of HC Lugano, with 43.
With the league on its holiday break, Seguin was named to the Canadian team taking part in the Spengler Cup. He has one goal in two games in the tournament, which features five teams from European leagues and Team Canada.
Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron, who is also playing for Canada at the Spengler Cup, recently announced that he had played his last game with Lugano.
