    The home of the Dallas Stars' Tyler Seguin sustained significant damage after severe weather blew through North Dallas Sunday night.

    The home, near the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Royal Lane, had its roof torn off in the storm, which included at least one tornado confirmed by the National Weather Service.

    "I've seen, personally, stuff on social media about (the) Bahamas and Florida and different tragedies around the world," Seguin said. "But to see it first hand and what it can do to a place, it's tragic."

    In a tweet Sunday night, the all-star center thanked people for reaching out to check on him but said he'd moved to a new house and the damaged house was for sale.

    "I just left the area and it is an extremely sad sight to see," Seguin wrote. "Prayers to everyone affected by the tornado."

    The Stars played a road game in Philadelphia Saturday but returned to Dallas to face Ottawa Monday night.

    After Monday's morning skate, Seguin said he realized things could have been worse for him.

    "I'm not going through what other families are going through," he said. "The families who have lost their homes aren't in another home, had to find shelter last night or the worst-case scenario are injured or worse."

    Seguin added that he looked forward to watching how the community comes together during this tough time and said he planned to chip in with the recovery effort in some way.
