Tyler Seguin had surgery done to repair a tendon in his left hand soon after the Bruins season ended. He returned to Boston recently to have stitches removed, and told Bruins.com that his recovery process would take 10 weeks since the surgery was performed.

Seguin said he's looking to improve his "man strength." If he develops his core this summer, he feels it will help him battle for pucks in the corners when he takes the ice for the 2012-13 season.
You thought the Bruins getting bounced put you in a funk? Seguin says he still has a hard time even watching hockey on TV since losing in the first round to the Capitals.
