Bruins send Seguin to Ruff-coached Stars for Eriksson

By John Vogl

The Sabres' division was already getting a shake-up with the arrival of Detroit, Florida and Tampa Bay. Longtime rival Boston is intent on changing things, too.

The Bruins have sent center Tyler Seguin, plus Rich Peverley and defense prospect Ryan Button, to the Lindy Ruff-coached Dallas Stars for Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser, according to TSN.

Seguin, selected second in the 2010 draft, had 16 goals and 32 points in 48 games. He slumped in the playoffs, though, as Boston lost the Stanley Cup to Chicago. Seguin had one goal and eight points in 22 postseason games.

Eriksson had 12 goals and 29 points in 48 games. The 27-year-old scored between 26 and 36 goals in each of the previous four seasons.
