FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin has a hairline fracture in his heel after playing for Team Canada in preparation for the World Cup of Hockey.

The Stars said Saturday that the fracture was detected during an MRI exam on Friday, and that Seguin will be re-evaluated in a week.

Dallas opens training camp next Friday.

Seguin was an All-Star last season, when he had 33 goals and 40 assists in 72 regular-season games before his left Achilles tendon was cut by a skate. He appeared in only one playoff game while the Stars advanced to the second round.

The 24-year-old Seguin suffered the fractured heel in Team Canada’s exhibition game against the United States on Sept. 9. He was replaced on Team Canada’s roster by Buffalo Sabres center Ryan O’Reilly.
