Tyler Seguin‘s time as an Axeman with EHC Biel in Switzerland is coming to an end.

The Bruins centerman tells Joe Haggerty at CSNNE.com that he’ll be heading back to Boston after playing in the Spengler Cup in Europe. In 29 games with EHC Biel, Seguin teamed up with Chicago’s Patrick Kane and put up a whopping 40 points including 25 goals.

Seguin is playing for Team Canada in the Spengler Cup, alongside Bruins teammate Patrice Bergeron, and just today they advanced to the semifinals as the top seed there. The Spengler Cup semis take place on Sunday while the finals are on New Year’s Eve.

    To bad he doesn’t play for the Leafs. He is a good Canadian hockey player. The Bruins are lucky to have him.

    Yet another big name player bailing on his Euro team. It’s going to be hard for Fehr to drive a tough bargain this coming week with all of his big name clients heading home, expecting a deal.

    I’m happy the Oilers picked Hall and left Seguin for the Bruins and even more happy Chiarrelli had the good sense to extend him.

      I’m happy with that, too. But had the Bruins drafted Hall instead, he would have been brought up completely differently and there is no telling how that would have effected him. Usually a slower, patient approach works, so my gut tells me, Hall would have been better off with the Bs, at least in the short term. Instead, he was thrown right into the fire. I’m happy with Seguin but I still wonder how Hall would have done in Boston, especially with his more physical style. Maybe he would be injured all the time…who knows..
