The Dallas Stars have gotten a huge boost to their lineup for a last-ditch playoff push, with forward Tyler Seguin making his season debut Monday versus the Florida Panthers.

Seguin missed all 51 of Dallas' previous games this campaign while recovering from offseason surgery to repair significant damage in his hip. He suffered the injury during last summer's playoffs and played through the ailment as the Stars marched to the Stanley Cup Final.

The timing couldn't be better for Seguin's return. Entering Monday's game, Dallas sits three points back of the Nashville Predators for the final playoff spot in the Central Division with a game in hand.

Seguin registered 50 points in 69 games last season and has 430 points in 458 contests since being traded to the Stars before the 2014-15 campaign.
