The Dallas Stars will have to wait for Tyler Seguin’s return to the lineup. It won’t be tonight in Game 1 of their series versus Minnesota.

Stars coach Lindy Ruff shared that news this morning, while adding on an optimistic note that he expects the star forward to return Saturday for Game 2.

Seguin has not played a game since suffering a partial tear of his Achilles tendon last month.

The Wild, meanwhile, have their own injury issues, led by Zach Parise’s upper-body injury that could soon, according to the Star Tribune, require “season-ending microdiscectomy surgery to relieve pressure on the spinal nerve column.”
