Tyler Seguin needs to grow up. That, according to Boston Bruins management.

“He’s got to become more of a professional,” B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli said this weekend. “You know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. He’s got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game. Simple as that. He does that, we don’t expect him to be crashing and banging. Just play your game.”

Chiarelli was said to be looking at trade options for the winger during Sunday’s NHL Entry Draft.

Seguin disappointed this past postseason as he registered just one goal in 22 games. He also had a rough start to the 2013 NHL season as a Swiss tabloid, Blick, accused him of “leaving his apartment in shambles” after he was called back to the U.S. to begin the lockout-shortened season.

According to NBC Sports the newspaper story on Seguin’s housekeeping translated as follows:

“The parquet floor was littered with coins worth 220 francs [$238].”

Coca-cola bottles, garbage and dirty linen lay scattered across the floor, while rotten bananas were left on a table, the newspaper said.

The bathroom was a shambles and the cleaning company spent a full day tidying the apartment.

In December, when Seguin returned to America, the staff were met with a similar stiff challenge.

Blick said the hockey player was “not versed in appliances” and as a result tried to wash his clothes in the dryer.

“He also did not know how to operate the dishwasher . . . when he ran out of clean plates, glasses and cutlery, he bought plastic tableware.”
