Here is an interesting fact, As the result of one of his best friends suffering a severe spinal cord injury in December 2012, Seguin founded Seguin’s Stars upon arriving in Dallas. At every Stars home game during the season, Seguin donated a luxury suite, along with food and beverage, for individuals with spinal cord injuries. At the conclusion of every game, Seguin met his guests outside of the Stars’ locker room for autographs and pictures
