Ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin's home destroyed in Dallas-area tornado

A tornado in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Sunday night caused severe damage to the home of Tyler Seguin, the Dallas Stars forward confirmed early Monday morning.

The tornado completely blew the roof off Seguin's home in North Dallas, according to a photo taken by NBC5's Meredith Land.

Fortunately, the home was unoccupied; Seguin tweeted that he recently put the home up for sale and has moved into a new place.

The 27-year-old was in Philadelphia on Saturday night as the Stars played the Flyers, but returns Monday for Dallas' home game against the Ottawa Senators.

Seguin, the Bruin's No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, spent his first three seasons in Boston and won a Stanley Cup with the team in 2011.

The Bruins traded him to the Stars in 2013 and he's thrived ever since, appearing in four consecutive NHL All-Star Games from 2015 to 2018.

Chris Wagner discusses 'unfortunate' Roman Polak injury from Bruins opener

Chris Wagner discusses 'unfortunate' Roman Polak injury from Bruins opener

The Dallas Stars lost several players to injury in their season-opener against the Boston Bruins, but none was scarier than the injury to Roman Polak.

Polak, a veteran of 14 NHL seasons, went hard into the boards midway through the second period of the game while chasing after a puck. Polak hit his shoulder and neck simultaneously and went down immediately. He had to be stretchered off and was down on the ice for several minutes without moving.

Bruins forward Chris Wagner was the player involved in puck race with Polak. Wagner himself slipped into the boards on the play, but he veered off to the side after losing his balance and went in feet-first while Polak went in with his head and shoulder lowered. After the game, he called Polak's injury "unfortunate" but didn't see Polak hit the boards.

"I didn’t really see him go down," said Wagner, per Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe. "I saw him, and it looked like he was going to give me a push, so I kind of went the other way and got out of it. Unfortunate . . . I didn’t see him [hit] the boards. Sad."

While Polak's injury was certainly scary, Stars head coach Jim Montgomery did provide a positive update on him during his postgame press conference.

"The good news is Roman has full use of his extremities and we feel he's pretty good at the hospital," Montgomery said, per Sean Shapiro of The Athletic. "But we don't have results yet. We're hopeful he may be a player in a couple of days."

Regardless of when Polak returns, it's just a good thing to hear that he has full use of his extremities. Hopefully, he'll be fully healthy soon.

WATCH: Brett Ritchie nets first Bruins goal minutes into team debut

It didn't take long for the Boston Bruins to get on the board in their season opener against the Dallas Stars.

Just over a minute into the game, the Bruins were able to net their first goal of the season against Ben Bishop. The scorer? Free-agent acquisition Brett Ritchie.

Here's a look at the goal courtesy of the Bruins official Twitter account.

This was a sweet goal for Ritchie. He came to the Bruins after spending the first five years of his career with the Stars, but wasn't give much of a chance to be a scorer. He had only 6 points in 53 games last season.

Ritchie's revenge goal was just the start for the Bruins. On their first power play of the season, Danton Heinen netted a goal to give the Bruins an early 2-0 lead.
