Seguin held out of practice after arriving late; Stars to handle ‘internally’

Tyler Seguin
Though their season is essentially over, the Dallas Stars are apparently still in teaching mode. From the Morning-News’ Mike Heika:

Tyler Seguin was held out of practice because he was late, Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. They will handle it internally, Ruff said.

Ruff on Seguin’s absence: “Tyler was just late for practice.” Any repercussions for tomorrow? “We’re going to deal with that internally.”

It’ll be interesting to see what the Stars decide to do here, if anything. The club’s regular-season finale is at home on Saturday against Nashville, and we’re not that far removed from another young forward -- Toronto’s Nazem Kadri -- getting parked for a few games after he slept in and was late for practice in early March.

The Stars haven’t been shy about disciplining players this year, either. Forward Cody Eakin was a healthy scratch for a game against Philly last month, though the club was mum on the reasons beyond “team discipline.”

As for Seguin, much has been made of his maturity -- or perceived lack thereof -- during his time in Boston (including the whole alarm clock thing), but it’s rarely been an issue with the Stars. That said, he did find himself embroiled in a situation earlier this season when he and Jamie Benn made fun of Daniel and Henrik Sedin during a Dallas-area radio interview.
