Tyler Seguin thinks Stars goalie got in Ovechkin’s head

Tyler Seguin Stars

Tyler Seguin thinks that Dallas Stars goalie Anton Khubodin got inside of Alex Ovechkin’s head on Friday night.

The Stars beat the Caps 2-1 in overtime on Seguin’s goal — his second of the game. Ovi attempted six shots on goal for the Washington Capitals but was stonewalled by Khubodin, who stopped all but one shot he faced.

Seguin said after the game that Khubodin got in Ovechkin’s head.

Seguin could be right. Most of all, this shows the kind of confidence Seguin and the Stars now have.

Just a week ago, Seguin and Jamie Benn defended themselves from criticism from the team’s CEO. That appears to have lit a fire under him, as he’s recorded points in every game since and has scored four goals over the past two games.

Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn responded on Saturday to some harsh criticism from Dallas Stars CEO Jim Lites.

Lites is disappointed with the Stars’ season thus far and ripped into Seguin and Benn, singling them out for their poor play.

“It’s pissed me off,” Lites said on Friday. “What nobody says is what is completely obvious to me: We are getting terrible play from our top two players.”

Lites said that Seguin, usually a top goal-scorer, is not getting dirty the way he needs to. He said Benn has had some poor play that would get many players benched.

Both players were at an optional skate on Saturday and responded. They said they were aware of the comments and they somewhat took the high road in response.

Lites may come off like a jerk to some, but he’s clearly trying to light a fire under his best players. He also says the owner sees things the same way, so maybe he’s taking the heat by being the bad guy.

Dallas entered play on Saturday 19-16-3 with 41 points — barely grabbing the final playoff spot in the West. They’ve only made the playoffs twice since 2008 and are expecting much more out of this year’s squad.

This is not the first time Seguin has faced criticism from a team CEO. There have long been concerns about his focus due to alleged partying.

Tyler Seguin called out by former Maple Leafs CEO for throwing parties

Tyler Seguin is, by all indications, a 23-year-old professional hockey player who likes to party. Does that make him the exception or the norm? Seguin certainly gets more attention for it than others, but is the attention warranted?

If you remember, the Boston Bruins reportedly traded Seguin two years ago because they were unhappy with his partying ways. On Tuesday morning, former Toronto Maple Leafs CEO Richard Peddie indicated that Seguin’s neighbors in Yorkville, Toronto have become annoyed with him.

Seguin has gotten a lot of credit for maturing since he was traded to the Dallas Stars, but Peddie believes Tyler’s neighbors would tell you otherwise. Seguin’s mother has defended her son against rumors that he threw “reckless” parties in team hotels, but the timing of a certain rager in Cape Cod rubbed people the wrong way.

As Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy reminds us, the Maple Leafs traded the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft to Boston in exchange for Phil Kessel. There certainly could be some bias showing through from Peddie, who was still with Toronto at the time.

Tyler Seguin lets someone hit golf ball off his crotch (Video)

Tyler Seguin had a breakout year with the Dallas Stars last season, and he is currently training hard in hopes of duplicating it in a few months. And as any good hockey player would tell you, there is nothing more important than a strong core.

One of the ways Seguin is strengthening his core is by allowing people to hit golf balls off his crotch. He took some time to work out while hosting the Fourth Period’s Charity Golf Classic on Thursday.

“Didn’t think this would be happening at my first golf tourny,” he wrote on Instagram. Thank god he was a pro. Awesome day big shoutout to the 150+ people that came #tfpclassic #charity #golf #nhl”

Seguin said having the ball hit off his groin area “tickled.” I’d say that makes him a pretty lucky guy. We can only imagine how wrong that could have gone.

Dallas Stars ice girls go nuts for Tyler Seguin’s hat trick

Tyler Seguin StarsYou already knew that Tyler Seguin was popular with the ladies. I mean the guy has dated a Playboy Playmate and may have been involved with a famous Olympic gymnast. But did you know that even ice girls love him too?

Check out this great photo of the Dallas Stars’ ice girls going nuts after Seguin recorded his third goal on Thursday night to give him a hat trick in a 6-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks:

Seguin also had two assists in the game. What a dreamboat.

Oh, and think he’s not loving Dallas too? He has 63 points in 61 games this season and is four away from matching his career-high set with the Bruins two seasons ago.

Tyler Seguin sends ‘steers and queers’ tweet about Texas, says he was hacked

Tyler Seguin has had a week to forget. First he gets traded from the Boston Bruins to the Dallas Stars on July 4, supposedly because the Bruins thought he was too much of a party animal. Then his parents have to comment on whether or not he’s too much of a partier. Then he supposedly hosted a “trade party” the night he was traded. And now he’s doing some damage control after a homophobic tweet was sent from his Twitter account.

The new Stars forward tweeted “Only steers and queers in Texas, and I’m not a cow” on Saturday night. Deadspin captured the original tweet:

Seguin immediately deleted the tweet and claimed he was hacked:

Seguin tweeted earlier in the day that he was driving back to Toronto (possibly from Cape Cod), so it’s possible someone grabbed his phone and tweeted that from his account. Or maybe he (or someone else) was just quoting “Full Metal Jacket” at the time. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Tyler Seguin threw a party in the Cape day he was traded for partying too much

Tyler Seguin was traded by the Boston Bruins on Thursday, reportedly because the team was unhappy with his partying ways. In a wonderfully ironic twist, the youngster just so happened to throw a party the day he was traded.

Numerous people tweeted about being at Seguin’s house on the Cape for a July 4 party and shared photos and videos from the affair. One even called it a “trade party.” Viral music star Mike Stud was among those who tweeted about meeting up with Seguin for a party:

It could very well be that Seguin just happened to throw a July 4 party like most people in the country, but the timing of his rager doesn’t look great. Keep in mind Seguin’s mother defended him to the Toronto Star for the reports that he partied too much. Seguin’s father even admitted that his son parties and is caught up by social media frequently because he is so young. That’s exactly what happened on Thursday.

A girl who goes by Lizzy Dela on Instagram shared this photo from Seguin’s party:
