Jaromir Jagr Injury Update: Philadelphia Flyers Wing Could Return Sooner Than Expected

The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that Jaromir Jagr will miss between a week and 10 days due to a strained groin, but Jagr isn't sure he'll miss that much time.

"I was surprised to hear that, because I didn't feel that way," Jagr said of the timeline, adding he was actually speared in the groin area against Pittsburgh last week, not the calf.

The winger skated by himself Thursday morning while his teammates went through a morning skate. He said the injury is different and less painful than the groin pull he experienced in November, but acknowledged that he can't skate full throttle yet without pain.

"Only way I feel pain is when I push my leg all the way," he said. "That was in the game. Today, I felt fine but it's only practice and I don't [extend] ... I have at least two more practice days and it heals quick."

Jaromir Jagr Injury Update: James Van Riemsdyk Expected To Fill In For Jagr

The Philadelphia Flyers came up short in the 2012 Winter Classic on Monday, losing 3-2 to the New York Rangers, who they are currently chasing for first place in the Atlantic Division.

They lost more than the game with the defeat, as forward Jaromir Jagr left the game in the second period and missed practice on Tuesday. It was announced that Jagr has a groin strain and is expected to miss 7-10 days. He is third on the team in points behind Claude Giroux (46 points) and Scott Hartnell (35) and has a plus-12.

According to Flyers beat reporter Sam Carchidi, James van Riemsdyk is likely to inherit the bulk of top line playing time in Jagr's absence. Van Riemsdyk filled in when Jagr removed himself from the Winter Classic and Flyers coach Peter Laviolette later reported he liked what he saw from JVR on Monday.
