Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin will not play in Game 4 of the Western Conference First Round against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Wednesday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN360, TVA Sports 3, FS-SW, FS-N, FS-WI), according to the Dallas Morning News.

Dallas leads the best-of-7 series 2-1.

Seguin is resting in Dallas, has not resumed skating and remains day-to-day, Stars general manager Jim Nill told reporter Mike Heika. Seguin has been rehabbing a cut Achilles tendon that kept him out of the final 10 regular-season games and Game 1 against the Wild.

Seguin returned for Game 2, but did not play in Game 3.

Goalie Antti Niemi was first off the ice at the morning skate and is likely to start for the Stars. Kari Lehtonen played the first three games and has a 1.69 goals-against average and .931 save percentage.
