Seguin on Dallas: ‘I want to earn the respect of my teammates’

Newest Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin arrived in his new city after a summer filled with losing in the Stanley Cup Final as well as rumors about his supposed off-ice partying ways.

The 20-year-old star forward tells Kevin Allen of USA Today he knows he’s got work to do to prove he’s ready to focus on hockey and win games.

“First, I want to earn the respect of my teammates,” Seguin said. “That’s a big thing for me because I don’t know many of them … and obviously I want to prove something to my coaches and the Dallas fans. In Boston, I was connected to the fans. I want to find that (connection) in Dallas.”

Seguin also admitted he made some bad choices in Boston but he also won’t “man up” for what was untrue. Take that and apply it to any of the rumors that came up during and after the playoffs since that probably won’t be discussed at length.
