DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Recently acquired Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin says an anti-gay comment that showed up on his Twitter account came from “hackers.”

The tweet showed up on his account Saturday and was quickly removed.

The Stars released a statement on Sunday addressing the issue.

“In no way, shape or form does the Dallas Stars organization condone or agree with the message that was sent out through Tyler Seguin’s Twitter feed last night. We’ve addressed the issue directly with Tyler and we’ll continue to work on educating our players regarding the importance of their conduct on all forms of social media.”

Seguin posted an apology on Twitter and said he was temporarily shutting down his account because of “repeated attempts by ‘hackers’ to try to damage my reputation.”

The 21-year-old Seguin was traded to Dallas by Boston on Thursday, just days after Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli criticized the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft as needing to be a “better pro.”

Dallas made the seven-player deal because it needs centers, and Seguin figures to be on the Stars’ first line.

Stars Head Coach Lindy Ruff joined Elf & Slater on 105.3 The Fan on Friday and was asked about Seguin’s past troubles and immaturity issues.
