The Dallas Stars will be without top center Brad Richards to start a three-game road trip to western Canada.

Richards was left behind Monday after injuring himself in Sunday's home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Without revealing the nature of the injury, Dallas coach Marc Crawford said that Richards will miss Tuesday's game against Edmonton, but could join the team later in the trip.

"He suffered an injury on the last shift of the game on a hit in the neutral zone," Crawford told reporters. "He's not feeling 100 percent today. Brad would like to join us but we think it is the best measure for him to stay behind and get him back to 100 percent before he rejoins the club. We're going to be cautious here and not only what is best for Brad Richards but also for the Dallas Stars."

Richards has a team-best 24 goals and leads the club in scoring with 63 points.
