Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin, who has yet to play with the club in 2020-21 after undergoing a right hip arthroscopy and labral repair after the 2020 post-season, will make his return to the lineup on Monday against the Florida Panthers.
Seguin was activated off the injured reserve earlier in the day, and was a game-time decision until just before puck drop.
The 29-year-old, who’s led the Stars in scoring the past two seasons, will make his return with only five games left in the regular season.
Dallas currently sits just three points behind Nashville for the final playoff spot up for grabs in the Central Division, with the Stars sitting holding one game in hand.
Seguin put up 17 goals and 50 points for Dallas last season, adding another 13 points through 26 playoff appearances as his Stars’ run extended all the way to the Stanley Cup Final.
