Hip Problems May Be An Issue For Seguin

from Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston,

Forward Tyler Seguin has been arguably the Bruins’ best player so far in what is shaping up to be a breakout season, but looming in the background is a question about his long-term health.

Seguin has a congenital hip condition that makes him more susceptible to a hip injury, according to league and team sources.

The condition could lead to an injury that requires surgery and potentially shorten his career, the sources said, but is not a concern for the short-term, nor is it affecting him presently.

The condition increases the likelihood that the 19-year-old Seguin suffers a type of repetitive-stress degenerative hip injury if he isn’t proactive about building and maintaining his strength in that area.

Tyler Seguin said he was not born with a congenital hip condition, as ESPN Boston reported yesterday.

“I was not born with any symptoms or anything like that,” Seguin said. “I’m 100 percent healthy. So whatever was said is false.”
