Seguin pays for missed breakfast

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Yesterday wasn’t the first time Tyler Seguin has missed a team meeting. But being a repeat offender cost him a chance to play.

Seguin was scratched because he was absent for a team breakfast and meeting yesterday morning. Instead of appearing in his 26th game, Seguin watched last night’s 2-1 loss from the MTS Centre press box, the consequence for his actions.

“Just one of those things you’ve got to do once in a while as a coach,’’ said coach Claude Julien. “He’s missed some meetings. Obviously it’s not the first time. When it’s the first time, you give guys a break. But it’s happened more than a few times. At one point, he’s got to hold himself responsible. We felt he could have easily done that. Hopefully it’s a learning thing. He’s a good player and a good individual. He’s going to bounce back and play for us next game.’’

Seguin was informed of the decision yesterday afternoon. Jordan Caron, who hadn’t played since Nov. 15, replaced Seguin on the No. 2 line alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

“It is a mistake,’’ Seguin said. “Something you can really only learn from and move on. It was a mistake. I know it wasn’t professional. It’s going to have consequences. It’s against team rules. Tonight I paid the consequences.’’

The Bruins arrived in Winnipeg early yesterday morning after their 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Monday.

Asked how Seguin took the news, general manager Peter Chiarelli said, “Not good. But he understands there’s a set of team rules. Everybody plays by the same rules.’’

Seguin has 13 goals and 12 assists.
