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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
