The tornado completely blew the roof off Seguin's home in North Dallas, according to a photo taken by NBC5's Meredith Land.

Fortunately, the home was unoccupied; Seguin tweeted that he recently put the home up for sale and has moved into a new place.
Thanks to everyone reaching out about the news tonight, I am safe. Luckily this is my house for sale and I have moved into a new one. I just left the area and it is an extremely sad sight to see. Prayers to everyone affected by the tornado. https://t.co/wT6XlUBi8N

Seguin, the Bruin's No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, spent his first three seasons in Boston and won a Stanley Cup with the team in 2011.
The Bruins traded him to the Stars in 2013 and he's thrived ever since, appearing in four consecutive NHL All-Star Games from 2015 to 2018.
