Seguin jumps on with Swiss team

Boston Bruins center Tyler Seguin has signed on with EHC Biel of the Swiss National A League, TFP has confirmed, and will play there during the NHL lockout.

Seguin, 20, becomes the seventh Canadian-born player to sign overseas, and fifth in the Swiss League.

San Jose's Logan Couture (Geneva, Swiss), Joe Thornton (HC Davos, Swiss) and Jason Demers (Karpat, FEL), the New York Rangers' Rick Nash (HC Davos, Swiss), Ottawa's Jason Spezza (Rapperswil-Jona, Swiss), and Boston's Andrew Ference (Mountfield, Czech Republic).

Seguin, who will arrive in Switzerland either Friday or Saturday and play his first game next week, registered 29 goals and 38 assists for 67 points with the Bruins last season, where he was selected to play in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.

On Sept. 11, the native of Brampton, Ontario signed a six-year, $34.5 million contract extension with the Bruins. He will return to the Bruins once the NHL lockout ends, providing the regular-season is not cancelled.
