It is unclear what caused the injury but Sharp is just seven games removed from recovering from his last concussion, which saw him miss a total 14 games.
“Patrick’s got concussion symptoms. We don’t know whether or not it’s related to the previous one,” Stars head coach Lindy Ruff told reporters on Saturday. “He’s going to be evaluated, and obviously he’s going to be out. It’s something he’s missed a lot of time with and something we want to be very careful with.”
The 34-year-old has just one goal and one assist in 11 games played this season.
The move came ahead of Saturday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche and a corresponding roster move is expected to be made by the Stars early next week.
