Dallas Stars forward Jason Spezza will be out at least a week and maybe longer with an upper-body injury.

Spezza was injured in the third period of a 4-3 home loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday when he was hit by Jets forward Adam Lowry.

"Right now we really don't have a time frame on it," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Friday, "but it's more than days.

"It's an upper-body injury that doesn't have anything to do with anything old. It's not a concussion. It's going to take a week or two, maybe longer."

Spezza, 33, has 31 points (eight goals, 23 assists) in 45 games this season.
