PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Jaromir Jagr will miss at least a week of action with a mild groin strain, General Manager Paul Holmgren said Tuesday.

Jagr, third on the Flyers in scoring with 12 goals and 19 assists, will be out 7-10 days with a mild strain suffered during Monday's 2012 Winter Classic outdoor game at Citizens Bank Park.

He sustained the injury while skating between two New York Rangers defenders late in the first period.

Initial reports indicated Jagr had aggravated a calf injury he suffered Thursday at Pittsburgh.
