Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin said Friday it is too early to measure his recovery from a knee injury in the first stages of treatment.

"It's only been a week, so there hasn't been too much progress or setback," Seguin told the Stars website. "It's just been how it is. Every night I go to sleep and in the morning I'll wake up and see if it hurts at all, to see if I was cured overnight. Maybe I will get over that soon."
Seguin was injured by a hit from Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov on Feb. 13. The Stars said Seguin would be sidelined 3-6 weeks.
"It's more spiritually right now, trying to stay positive," Seguin said. "It's very frustrating. It's weird watching games. I've really never missed time during the season for injuries."
Seguin had 59 points (29 goals) in 55 games. He was sixth in the NHL in scoring entering play Friday, when he had a second injection of blood into his knee.
The Stars have lost two of three without him. Dallas hosts the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.
Kulikov was suspended four games by the NHL Department of Player Safety.
