Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren doesn't believe veteran right wing Jaromir Jagr's lower body injury will keep him sidelined for too long.
"He's just got a little bit of a thing in his lower body," Holmgren said after the Flyers skated to a 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.
"I don't think it's anything serious. I just talked to Jaromir. He thinks in a couple days he should be better. I think we'll lose him the next game, but nobody thinks it's serious."
Holmgren detailed that Jagr won't make the trip to Manitoba to face the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday, but hopes to be on the ice for Monday's home contest versus the Carolina Hurricanes.
Jagr, 39, left the contest after logging just 1 minute, 22 seconds of ice time. He did not return.
After returning to the NHL following a three-year absence, Jagr has collected six goals, 11 assists and 10 penalty minutes in 18 games this season.
