Dallas Stars forward Jaromir Jagr is going to be day-to-day due to back issues, according to Mark Stepneski of the Dallas Stars official website.

Jagr suffered an injury in the third period of Thursday night's overtime loss against the Chicago Blackhawks. After being evaluated by the team's medical staff it was determined that he would not return to the game. During the postgame, head coach Glen Gulutzan was unable to give an update about Jagr's status.

On Friday morning, reports from practice detailed that the 40-year-old forward was not on the ice surface. It was later learned that he had been participating in off-ice workouts. Obviously, with a day-to-day projection, it remains unclear whether he will be available for the team's game against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

In four games played with the Stars this season, Jagr has registered two goals and two assists for a total of four points. That total was compiled during the team's first game of the season against the Phoenix Coyotes.
