The guess here is that Tyler Seguin – with his Stanley Cup championship ring, with the bright future of a burgeoning NHL star, and with his 7 percent body fat – doesn’t need much help getting a date. But the Lowell Spinners were happy to give the 20-year-old Bruins forward whatever assistance he may have needed Wednesday night.

The Red Sox’ creative Class-A affiliate hosted a “Speed Dating with Tyler Seguin” event at LeLacheur Park, with 20 lucky ladies (yes, they had to be ladies) winning the opportunity to try and spark a love connection while she and her family sat with the all-star in the front row of the box seats as the Spinners’ took on the Aberdeen IronBirds.

One winner earned her five minutes of conversation, autographs, and pictures with Seguin by placing the winning bid on the eBay auction where one seat was up for sale, pledging $277.36 to the Lowell Spinners Charities. Another was selected via the team’s Facebook page, where fans were asked to change their profile picture and post a compelling argument as to why they should be picked – one group of girls going so far as to make their case by filming their own “Call Me Maybe” parody in front of the TD Garden. (They won.)

Others were chosen at random after filling out a contest entry form included in the game program or purchasing specially marked concessions or merchandise, while the last spot went to the victor of a hockey-themed challenge that took place on the field after the first inning, between four women wearing Seguin shirts.

Funny, because the bachelor doesn’t always wear his shirt himself.
