Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin missed Sunday's game against the Edmonton Oilers after experiencing concussion-like symptoms.

Seguin, who was acquired from the Boston Bruins in early July, missed three practices in the last week but played Friday against the Chicago Blackhawks, a 2-1 shootout loss. He didn't practice Saturday, though.

The Stars previously indicated that Seguin had a "muscle issue" but multiple reports Sunday indicated he's showing signs of a concussion. But a team spokesman said Sunday his current injury occured during the game against the Blackhawks.

Seguin leads the Stars with 12 goals and is second with 23 points.

SCHWARTZ SHINES FOR BLUES

Nothing has changed for St. Louis Blues sophomore forward Jaden Schwartz this season.

Other than his point total, that is.

With six goals and 11 assists, Schwartz has already surpassed his point total (15) from last year, his first in the NHL. But the 21-year-old, who was the Blues first-round pick in 2010, says his game hasn't changed this year, just the impact he's having.

"Sometimes you get some bounces and sometimes you don't," Schwartz told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But I think I've been working hard to contribute in the O-zone and I've been able to get some pucks through traffic. I don't really know if I'm shooting more or not. I don't really look at the shots. But I'm playing hard and when you do that you get more chances."

DE HAAN LOOKING FOR MORE

New York Islanders defenceman Calvin de Haan doesn't want to be a one-and-done again.

De Haan, who played his second career NHL game Saturday against the Washington Capitals, would prefer to stick around with the Islanders rather than head back to Bridgeport of the AHL. He is, after all, a first-round pick (2009) of the Islanders who's been biding his time in the minors.

"I like to think I'm a realist, so I think (staying in Bridgeport this season) was the plan," de Haan told Newsday. "But I'm here and I want to make the most of it."

De Haan, who played junior with the Oshawa Generals of the OHL, played just over 20 minutes against the Capitals as a fill-in for Radek Martinek. He had two shots, four hits and wasn't on the ice for any Washington goals.

DEVILS' LARSSON GOES ON IR

New Jersey Devils defenceman Adam Larsson was put on injured reserve Sunday due to a lower-body injury.

Larsson was hurt Nov. 23 when he crashed into the boards against the San Jose Sharks. He has one goal and two assists in 20 games this season.

The Devils called up Tim Sestito from Albany of the AHL to take the spot of forward Ryan Carter, who will not make the trip to Montreal for Monday's game against the Canadiens. Carter is listed as day-to-day with facial lacerations, the result of a fight with Marcus Foligno of the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
