The Dallas Stars forward will not play Saturday and is day-to-day with a back injury

Dallas Stars forward Jaromir Jagr will not play Saturday night against the St. Louis Blues, coach Glen Gulutzan confirmed after the team's morning skate.

Jagr suffered a minor back injury during Thursday's loss to the Chicago Blackhawks and had been listed as day-to-day. The Stars recalled forward Colton Sceviour on Saturday morning, with both Sceviour and Tomas Vincour likely to get on the ice as the Stars could be without another forward.

The 40-year old scored two goals and had four points in last week's season opener against the Phoenix Coyotes. Jagr, signed in the offseason to a one-year, $4.55 million contract, has no points in the three games since, while leading the Stars in shots.

Jagr had been on the top line with Derek Roy and Loui Eriksson, as the Stars played without No. 1 center Jamie Benn while a new contract was negotiated. Benn signed a five-year deal on Thursday yet is not expected to play until Monday in Columbus due to visa issues.
