Tyler Seguin on teammate taunting: ‘They’re tired of making fun of me’

Tyler Seguin is so accustomed to celebrity honors that his teammates barely make fun of him anymore.

Tyler Seguin made it into People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive issue in November by earning a nod as the most attractive 23-year-old in the celebrity world, and he discussed the honor in a recent interview on the Bob and Dan radio show.

Seguin did not seem too enthusiastic about the nomination, but he did give some insight into what his teammates think of his most recent accolade.

“I don't really know who I beat out, but obviously, what an honor,” Seguin said. “Now [my teammates are] getting to a point where it's just like, 'Oh, whatever.' They're tired of making fun of me with these, the naked photoshoot and then this. They're kind of getting over it. It's just another day.”

Seguin missed out on People's Sexiest Man Alive award as David Beckham garnered that honor, but the Stars forward said he's more focused on hockey right now than celebrity life. The hockey world is working out well for Seguin, who ranks third in the league in scoring with 34 points (13 goals, 21 assists) in 24 games. The Stars currently lead the Western Conference with a 19-5-0 record and 38 total points.
