Tornados have ruined countless lives this year, and in the state of Texas in particular. Sadly, one NHL player learned the hard way how destructive they can be.

On Sunday, it was revealed that a tornado destroyed a house belonging to Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin.

According to Sporting News, the tornado itself resulted in several injuries and tons of property damage. But it does not appear as though anyone was hurt at Seguin's house.

As awful as losing the house may have been, Seguin may not be too beaten up over it. He revealed on Twitter that he had actually put the house up for sale and has been living in a new house for a while now.

Nevertheless, the level of destruction caused by the tornado is something to behold:

Seguin is a five-time NHL All-Star and was a Stanley Cup champion with the Boston Bruins in 2011. At the international level, he helped lead Canada to an IHF World Championship in 2015.

Last year, Seguin signed a eight-year, $78.8 million contract extension with the Stars, so he probably won't miss the lost investment in the house either.

It's good to see that Seguin wasn't in harm's way. Hopefully a little spit and polish will get the house back to normal.
