Report: Tyler Seguin has hip condition

Posted By DJ Bean On October 28, 2011 @ 5:51 pm In General | No Comments

Bruins forward Tyler Seguin has a congenital hip condition that makes him more suspect to a injury, according to a report from ESPNBoston’s Joe McDonald [1].

McDonald writes that the team is not currently concerned over what the condition may mean for Seguin in the near future, though Seguin could suffer a hip injury if he does not maintain strength in the area.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told McDonald that the condition is “nothing to be alarmed about” and that approximately 70 percent of the Bruins have some sort of hip issue.

“I’m not going to comment whether it’s congenital or not,” Chiarelli said. “I don’t want to get into details what we think it is or isn’t and I don’t want any alarm bells going off. Like I said, you can go through our roster and there are probably 12 or 13 guys with something similar or the same thing.”
