DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin appears to be heading into the 2018 season without a new contract, and it isn't sitting well with him.

“It’s disappointing. I didn’t expect to be in this situation,” Seguin reportedly told Scott Wheeler of the Athletic.

Wheeler reports that Seguin isn't happy to be going into the season without a new deal and says the club discussed an extension with him during the NHL draft in July, however, there haven't been any discussions since. 

Seguin will enter the final year of the six-year, $34.5 million contract he signed with the Boston Bruins back in 2012. He'll earn $6.5 million this season.

Most of the Stars offseason consisted of swings and misses at a couple star players. Dallas pursued center iceman John Taveras, but the Toronto native opted to sign with his hometown Maple Leafs. 

Dallas was also connected to trade rumors involving star defenseman Erik Karlsson but the deal never materialized. Karlsson remains with the Ottowa Senators. 

Since his arrival in Dallas, Seguin has been among the most productive centers in the league, tallying 384 points and 173 goals in 387 games played.
