While helping out with the Stars' summer hockey camps, both Antoine Roussel and Tyler Seguin offered updates on what they've been up to since the season ended.
Roussel, for starters, is newly married, and he and his wife, Alexandra, are expecting their first child. Roussel also talked about his excitement for the upcoming season.
Roussel found some good chemistry on a line with center Radek Faksa and right wing Ales Hemsky down the stretch and in the playoffs last season, and he hopes that line can build on that in 2016-17.
"I really hope we are going to start together," Roussel said. "I think it is a great combination of skill, power, and aggressiveness. I like to play with those two guys. It is fun, but I will play anywhere they want me to play."
Seguin, who stopped by the Dallas Stars Hockey Academy on Satuday, chatted about his "quiet" offseason, the upcoming World Cup, and the importance of winning a playoff series.
On going to the World Cup with Jamie Benn
"Being selected for this stuff is always obviously an honor and cool to go yourself, but to share that with a teammate is something pretty special. Even something like the All-Star Game last year, going with him for the first time, it's just something special you can share with each other and go through the event with each other. I'm sure the World Cup's going to be pretty great."
Here's the rest of what Seguin had to say.
