Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will be held out of Monday night’s Game 3 matchup with the Wild in Minnesota after playing in Game 2 on Saturday, Lindy Ruff said this week.
Seguin is dealing with an injury related to the achilles injury that kept him out for most of the final month of the regular season, as well as Game 1 of this opening round series.
"He can't play right now," Ruff said, per Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Seguin did not fly with the team to Minnesota but according to Ruff, he’s still viewed as day-to-day, and there’s a chance he could join the team up North if he shows enough improvement.

"He's just back in Dallas doing a little bit more rehab," Ruff said. "He's just day-to-day, really just related to his injury. We'll just take it day-by-day and see where he's at.”
This development hasn’t caused Ruff to second-guess his decision to play Seguin in Game 2.
“He was ready,” Ruff said. “His declaration was he was ready to play, felt great, and then it becomes my decision. It was my decision to play him because I felt he looked good in the couple of previous practices, and we got him a couple of extra ones. He just irritated something that rendered him not effective.”
