Philadelphia Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr has a mild left groin strain that will sideline him for 7-10 days, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced on Tuesday.

The 39-year old Jagr missed practice on Tuesday after sitting out the final 35 minutes of Monday's Winter Classic against the New York Rangers. He initially said on Monday that he was limited by a calf injury suffered against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Dec. 29, but said he began hurting again after splitting two defenders during the first period of the Winter Classic.

Jagr, who missed four games during November due to a previous groin strain, has 12 goals and 19 assists for 31 points in 33 games this season. He is third on the team in points behind Claude Giroux (46 points) and Scott Hartnell (35) and has a plus-12.

He could return as early as next Tuesday against Carolina.
