Tyler Seguin On A Pace To Score 63 Goals

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Seguin leads the NHL with 17 goals in 22 games. If he continues that pace and stays healthy for all 82 games, he would score 63 goals. The Stars’ franchise record is 55, shared by Brian Bellows and Dino Ciccarelli. The last time a Star hit 50 was Mike Modano in 1993-94.

“That’s an incredible pace when you look at where the league is going,” center Jason Spezza said. “It’s impressive to get 40 goals in a season now. To get 50, you win scoring titles with 50.”

It’s heady stuff when you think about it. Seguin last season tallied 37 goals among 84 points in 80 games played. He was moving back to center after three years at right wing in Boston, and there were some growing pains. This season, he is moving effortlessly between right wing and center, and finding ways to get open no matter where he is on the ice.

“He’s a real challenge to defend,” said new Stars defenseman Jason Demers, who faced Seguin while playing for San Jose. “He’s got great speed, and he can really find the open ice. And he has that shot.”

You know who could use some goalscoring punch right now?  The Bruins.

Funny how that works out.
