Tyler Seguin is sure staying busy while he's locked out of the NHL. He's scored 13 goals in 15 games for EHC Biel of the Swiss National League. He's posed like He-Man. He's showed up at the Celtics game. He's even tweeted a photo of his seemingly fun-loving grandmother.

And now he's posted pictures showing he's a schwinger.

Before your mind races somewhere else, "schwingen" is a form of wrestling in Switzerland, and the photos Seguin tweeted show him and Biel teammate Patrick Kane taking part in a photo shoot for a magazine with a man the 20-year-old Bruins' forward describes as "Switzerland's top wrestler." That's sawdust filling the ring he's standing in, and those chap-like things the hockey stars are wearing are actually called "schwingerhosen."

He and Kane look like they're having a good time. (Too good a time, actually.) But the rest of us can only hope it's not long before Seguin takes off the schwingerhosen and replaces them with hockey pants bearing a spoked B.
