#3 – Tyler Seguin – 2010

The Boston Bruins drafted Tyler Seguin with the second overall pick of the 2010 NHL draft; a pick they received as a part of the trade between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs involving Phil Kessel. What nobody could have predicted was the fact that Tyler Seguin would be a part of a similar trade just a few years later at the age of 21.

Tyler Seguin has been one of the NHL’s best players since being drafted in 2010, unfortunately for the Bruins, most of his success has come as a member of the Dallas Stars. Winning the Stanley Cup in 2011 — his rookie season — was certainly a good way to start the career of Tyler Seguin, but his best statistical years were yet to come. After scoring 29 goals and 67 points in 81 games in his sophomore season, and 16 goals and 32 points in 48 games the following year in the lockout-shortened season, Tyler Seguin was traded to the Dallas Stars in a seven-player deal that once again shocked the entire hockey world. Since being acquired by the Dallas Stars, Tyler Seguin has become an offensive-machine, scoring 37 goals in two consecutive seasons.

Tyler Seguin currently has 143 goals and 316 points in 378 career games, and he will forever be the one who got away from the Boston Bruins.
