Stars forward Seguin 'can't skate yet:' report

At least week away from playing for Dallas in second round against Blues @NHLdotcom

Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin is likely at least a week away from returning to the lineup, the Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday.

"He can't skate yet," Stars general manager Jim Nill told the newspaper. "He's day-to-day, and once he gets on the ice, it's probably four to five days from there."

Seguin will not play in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round against the St. Louis Blues on Friday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports). He has missed 15 of the past 16 games.

Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Wednesday that Seguin is dealing with a lower-body injury related to the Achilles injury he sustained March 17. Seguin played in Game 2 of the first round against the Minnesota Wild (15:40 of ice time) but hasn't played since. That was his first game since sustaining a partial cut of the Achilles tendon on his left foot on March 17.

Seguin had 33 goals and 40 assists in 72 games this season.
