There are no two ways about it: Tyler Seguin (No. 2 in the latest Gare Joyce mock draft) was going to be a hockey player. His grandfather, Marcel Seguin, was drafted by the Boston Bruins and played semi-pro for the Buffalo Bisons. Dad Paul was team captain and roommate of future NHL star John Leclair at the University of Vermont. Mom Jackie starred for the Brampton Canadettes, the same system in which little sisters Candice, 15, and Cassidy, 12, now play. "I love this game and one day I'll have my job be something I love," Seguin says. "It was just supposed to happen."
But no one knew it would happen like this.
Berra's a Magazine writer, so the rest of this entry reads like that -- but that's a great thing in this case, because you'll learn way more about Tyler Seguin, which will be important come late June, especially if you happen to live near the Charles River or Back Bay. For all of this intel, become an ESPN Insider.
