“I’m starting to hear reports that Tyler Seguin has suffered what we believe might be a knee injury,” Kypreos said during the first intermission of a pre-tournament game between the U.S. and Finland.

The Dallas Stars forward crashed hard into the boards while trying to negate an icing call in Canada's pre-tournament opener against the U.S. on Friday, and was clipped by American Dustin Byfuglien in the neutral zone on Saturday.

"Everything I've gathered in a very short period of time is that this isn't a serious injury. That this could be a week-to-week situation, which means unfortunately for Seguin and Team Canada there's just not enough time to nurse him back to health."

FRISCO, Texas - The Dallas Stars released the following statements from general manager Jim Nill and center Tyler Seguin regarding his injury:

"We are aware of the injury Tyler suffered while competing with Team Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "We recognize the constraints of the tournament and understand Team Canada's decision given the circumstances. Tyler will be returning to Dallas in the coming days and we will evaluate him fully at that point."

"I'm disappointed that I can't represent Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey," forward Tyler Seguin said. "Any time your country calls, it's a great honor and is something every kid from Canada dreams about getting the chance to do. While I'm upset that I don't get the opportunity to play, I understand the situation Team Canada is in with a short tournament. I wish all the best for that team and the good news is that I'll get to be with my Stars teammates from day one. We're excited to get the season going and we can't wait to get to Cedar Park and get to work."

Probably a shoulder or concussion from the first pre-tourney game.  Throw him on the pile of top end talent that will come out of this meaningless tournament injured to start the NHL season.
