Seguin has signed on with EHC Biel of the Swiss National A League, according to The Fourth Period hockey blog. Ken Campbell of The Hockey News reports that Seguin's agent, Ian Pulver, confirmed that a deal with Biel is all but completed, and that Seguin would join the team soon.
According to Campbell, Pulver wouldn't say exactly why the 20-year-old is heading overseas, but it's not uncommon for NHL players to do such in the event of a work stoppage.
"I'm not going to get into the reasons," Pulver reportedly said. "I can confirm he will play there and leave it at that."
Seguin, who compiled 29-38-67 totals and was named an All-Star in his second NHL season, joins a host of other Canadian-born player to sign overseas, including Logan Couture, Joe Thornton, Jason Demers, Rick Nash, Jason Spezza and teammate Andrew Ference.
Seguin just inked a six-year, $34.5 million contract extension with the Bruins, and he figures to be a key component of Boston's future when the NHL labor dispute is finally resolved.
