Tyler Seguin's Player ProfileTyler Seguin has come on strong and shot up the draft rankings since joining the Plymouth Whalers for the 2008-2009 season. He has become Taylor Hallís toughest competition for the #1 spot overal.
Seguin, a pure center, excels in all three zones, and has shown dominance in all areas through his career in the OHL. His high-end playmaking ability and vision compliment his natural abilities as a center, but he has demonstrated, especially this season, a keen ability to put the puck in the net. Seguin has not played on as strong a team as many of the other projected top picks, so, his ability to make others around him better has been even more evident. For example, it is commonplace in Plymouth to see Seguin make the perfect pass to a teammate waiting on the doorstep of the goal. To put it lightly Seguin is as smart as they come in this yearís draft. Pick wahtever key phrase you like, " Slows the game down" "buys himself time and space " He is a pleasure to watch and will remind some of Steve Yzerman the way he carries himself .Seguin has good size for a center and the skating ability to translate smoothly to a higher level.
