Recently acquired Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin says an anti-gay comment that showed up on his Twitter account came from ''hackers.''
The Stars said in a statement Sunday that they had ''addressed the issue directly'' with Seguin. The tweet showed up on his account Saturday and was quickly removed.
Seguin posted an apology on Twitter and said he was temporarily shutting down his account because of ''repeated attempts by `hackers' to try to damage my reputation.''
The 21-year-old Seguin was traded to Dallas by Boston on Thursday, just days after Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli criticized the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft as needing to be a ''better pro.''
Dallas made the seven-player deal because it needs centers, and Seguin figures to be on the Stars' first line.

PARTY IN THE USA

Today we finally say goodbye to Tyler Seguin. With the last part of his tribute finishing the saga that is Tyler Seguin, don't expect much of anything regarding him in the future. Like I mentioned on Facebook, we don't care about the partying. Is he a disaster? Sure, but so are many rich young kids. So I guess we will start with one of the more famous photoshops, even if...

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
So it has to be a little concerning that social media and the internet have been filled with negative Tyler Seguin stories for the past three days. The latest came Saturday night when Seguin (who can be found at @tylerseguin92 on Twitter) tweeted out: “Only steers and queers in Texas, and I’m not a cow.”
He followed that...
Twitter is a relatively new but vastly popular social medium. Combine that with
being a young athlete with confidence and cash and you have a potentially
explosive situation. It's a 24/7 world that provides a "no holds barred" social microscope. For every true blue fan that follows an
athlete on Twitter there are just as many waiting and watching for him to mess...
As if Boston sports needed more bad news. Boston athletes were generating enough negative PR as it is. Enter Tyler Seguin.
Well exit Tyler Seguin, he does so many dumb things that he got himself traded out of town to the Dallas Stars. Mostly because he’s such a party animal. To be fair, Tyler Seguin is pretty dumb when he’s sober too. His partying got so bad that the Bruins hired...
