I'm ready to see this again. #isitOctoberYet?
The further adventures of Tyler Seguin continued this weekend as the former Whalers (Plymouth, not Hartford) star returned to his OHL roots for the Plymouth Whalers alumni game. According to Donna Roberts, who was in attendance, the highlights were:
"Mike Morrone stealing the puck from Tyler Seguin, Matt Hackett's sliding dive...Tyler Seguin asking the little girl behind the glass for some of her popcorn, made her day."
What a ham.
