Tyler Seguin Arrives In Temporary Swiss Hometown

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Journal du Jura, a Swiss French-language newspaper, has been running new articles on Tyler Seguin's arrival in Biel, home of his new club for the lockout, HC Biel.

Seguin arrived yesterday, in time to see his new club beat HC Ambri-Piotta. (Old friend Nolan Schaefer goaltends for Ambri-Piotta; no surprise to see that Biel beat them 4-1.)

Seguin gave an interview to Journal du Jura, the title of which translates to "I love having a good time!" Among the questions they asked him were:

-Have you ever been to Europe? (Yes, six or seven times, mostly with Team Canada - but never to Switzerland)
-Do you like the bigger sheets of ice used in Europe? (Yes, skating is an important part of my game, I'm excited to play on the bigger ice)
-Before you left, did you find out anything about the place you were coming to? (I looked on Google and Youtube to learn all I could about the city and HC Biel. I have to say that the Swiss game is quite different. This will be a process of learning for me, but I'm looking forward to it.)
-How do you feel, physically? (I still feel a little rusty.)
-Did you want to play in tonight's match against Ambri-Piotta? (Yes I want to play as soon as I can, but it's been months since I played in a full game, also I'm jetlagged. I want to get some sleep first!)

Nice.

HC Biel is set to face the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers on Saturday, a match that is drawing locals in due to the NHL matchup - Seguin will face off against the Lakers' Jason Spezza, who is also expected to play on Saturday. He'll play with Marc-Antoine Pouliot and Jacob MicFlickier, former AHL players from Canada.
