Jagr out for Dallas against Blues

Jaromir Jagr will not play Saturday night for the Dallas Stars against the St. Louis Blues because of a sore back, coach Glen Gulutzan told reporters after the team's morning skate.

Jagr, who left the Stars' 3-2 overtime loss Thursday to the Chicago Blackhawks, missed practice Friday because of the injury. Mark Stepneski, writer for the Stars' website, wrote on Twitter that Gulutzan said rookie Reilly Smith could move into the top six to help replace Jagr.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
