Spezza Dealt To Stars

News: The Senators have traded Jason Spezza and Ludwig Karlsson to the Stars for Alex Chiasson, Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul and a second-round draft pick in 2015, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Jason Spezza, who recorded 66 points in 75 games for the Sens this past season, enters the final year of a seven-year deal that he had signed with the Senators. Now that his wish to be traded has been granted, Spezza will no doubt give the Stars a big lift up front this coming season, while from the Sens' perspective, the deal frees up cap space in advance of free agency.

Sens' Spezza Refuses Trade To Nashville

News: The Sens had a draft-day deal in place to move Jason Spezza to the Predators, but it died on the draft floor because Spezza refused to go to Nashville, reports Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Analysis: Yikes -- things are getting a bit bitter in Ottawa, yeah? Jason Spezza will be moved, but the club is clearly doing what it can to demonize him.

Sens' Spezza Asks For Trade

News: Jason Spezza has asked the Senators to trade him, ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: Jason Spezza has been the subject of trade talks since the conclusion of the Senators' season, but it was finally confirmed Wednesday by general manager Bryan Murray that the 30-year-old center has asked to be moved. Murray will likely ask for prospects, as well as at least one player that can contribute right away, as Spezza was one of his most productive players, scoring 66 points (23 goals) in the 2013-14 season. Spezza's fantasy expectations heading into next season will ultimately be determined by his final landing spot.

Sens Expected To Trade Spezza

News: The Senators are expected to trade Jason Spezza before the NHL draft in June, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Jason Spezza has one year left on his contract with the Sens, but has said he will allow the team to trade him if it wants to. GM Bryan Murray will still need to find a deal he likes, but after a disappointing first season as captain, it looks like Spezza's time in Ottawa is could be over soon.

Sens' Spezza Productive Again

News: Jason Spezza finished the season with 23 goals and 43 assists in 75 games.
Analysis: The first-year captain put up big numbers once again, but was also minus-26 on the year, and there's been talk of trading him for a younger player as the Sens build for the future. No matter where he plays in 2014-15, he'll continue to be a valuable fantasy asset for the foreseeable future.

Spezza Snipes Sens' Only Goal In Win

News: Jason Spezza scored the Senators' only goal Saturday in a 1-0 win over the Maple Leafs. It came on the power play.
Analysis: It was a beautifully placed shot just inside the post. It's just his 23rd of the season, but he does have four snipes in his last four games (five points). He's giving owners a nice late-season push. He turns 30 this offseason, so don't expect a return to his point-plus per game pace. His game may be evolving toward playmaking, so evaluate his track record carefully before investing next season.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Big Night For Sens' Spezza

Jason Spezza

Big Night For Sens' Spezza

News: Jason Spezza opened the scoring in Tuesday's win over the Islanders with a power-play goal, then went on to add a second goal and an assist.
Analysis: The points just keep on coming with regularity for Jason Spezza, who's been simply aflame since the end of January. He has a spectacular 33 points in his last 28 games; more immediately, he's got three goals and three assists in his last five. Yet the goal was Spezza's first power-play tally since Jan. 28.

Spezza Paces Sens To Win

News: Jason Spezza scored his 20th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Rangers. The goal stood up as the winner in a 3-2 victory.
Analysis: Jason Spezza has now recorded 20 goals in eight of his last 10 seasons, with last year's five-game effort as one of the "missed" seasons. He remains a solid activation, but he has just two goals and five assists in his last 10 games.

Senators' Spezza Will Play Friday

News: Jason Spezza (groin) will play in Friday's game against the Canadiens, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: A decision on Jason Spezza's status was not expected to be made until just before game time, but it appears he felt better than expected at Friday's morning skate, and he will return to action after missing Wednesday's game.

Sens' Spezza Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Jason Spezza (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Friday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Jason Spezza will skate during Ottawa's pregame warmup Friday, after which a decision on his status for the game will be made. He's sat out the last two games with the undisclosed ailment.

Sens' Spezza Out For Wednesday

News: Jason Spezza (undisclosed) will not play Wednesday night against the Islanders, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: The Senators are still technically in the playoff race, but it sounds like the team is going to play it safe with their star center. Jason Spezza was able to participate in the morning skate Wednesday, though, so it's likely that he'll return sometime this weekend, either Friday against the Canadiens, or Saturday against the Rangers.

Sens' Spezza May Not Play Until Weekend

News: Coach Paul MacLean indicated Tuesday that Jason Spezza (undisclosed) may not return until the weekend, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports. "We anticipate that, by the weekend, we will have [Spezza] available. I think [he's] probable for the Islanders game [Wednesday], but, at the same time, it's probably more realistic for the weekend."
Analysis: MacLean's contradictory words would seem to cloud Jason Spezza's availability for Wednesday, so we probably won't know for certain if he will play against the Islanders until after morning skate. Fantasy owners are probably best off preparing as if Spezza won't be available until the weekend.

Sens' Spezza Out On Monday

News: Jason Spezza (unspecified issue) will sit out Monday's game against the Hurricanes for precautionary reasons, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Garrioch adds that Jason Spezza could be available Wednesday against the Islanders, so for now consider the center day-to day.

Jason Spezza

Sens' Spezza Picks Pair Of Helpers

News: Jason Spezza picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: He's been fiery hot recently, tearing off a spectacular 11 points in his last six games. Jason Spezza's had his troubles this year -- especially in plus-minus, where he's heading for the worst mark of his career -- but has still provided a shiny 58 points in 64 games so far.

Sens' Spezza: Three-Game, Eight-Point Streak

News: Jason Spezza scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's OT loss to the Canadiens. The points extend his current streak to three games and eight points, including six assists.
Analysis: He's on fire ... to the tune of 16 points, including 12 assists, in his last 10 games. Enjoy the ride.

Sens' Spezza Remains Red Hot

News: Jason Spezza notched a goal and two assists in Monday's OT loss to the Predators.
Analysis: That's back-to-back three-point games for Jason Spezza, who wasn't exactly struggling in the contests before that. With two goals and six assists in his six games since the break, Spezza remains one of the hottest fantasy forwards going at the moment.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Sens' Spezza Supplies Three Assists

Sens' Spezza Supplies Three Assists

News: Jason Spezza assisted on three scores in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Jets.
Analysis: The center has shined since returning to action following the Olympic break, contributing a goal and four assists over his five games. The trade deadline addition of Ales Hemsky has looked seamless through the first two games, and his presence on Jason Spezza's line could allow the 30-year-old to remain a consistent point scorer for the rest of the season.

Sens' Spezza Dishes Out Two Helpers

News: Jason Spezza dished out two assists in Thursday's win over Buffalo. He now has five points in his last two games.
Analysis: Jason Spezza is up to 44 points in 53 games on the season. He has shown some good chemistry with Milan Michalek as of late, assisting on the speedy winger's past three goals, including his two on Thursday. Spezza now has three goals and nine assists in his last nine games. Roll him with confidence.

Three Points For Sens' Spezza

News: Jason Spezza scored a goal on his only shot of the game and handed out two assists in Tuesday's shootout win over the Blues. He finished the night plus-2.
Analysis: He'd gone minus-4 with just one shot on goal over the last two games, losses to Pittsburgh and Toronto, so it's good to see Jason Spezza be effective in the offensive end again. He's had his inconsistencies, but has still managed a point-per-game pace over his last eight contests, though he's gone minus-4 in that span.

Sens' Spezza Dishes Two Helpers

News: Jason Spezza posted his second consecutive two-point game Thursday against Tampa, notching a pair of assists and a plus-1 rating in the 5-3 win.
Analysis: With two-point games in three of his last four and seven points in his last five contests overall, Jason Spezza's officially hot. Roll him confidently.

Sens' Spezza Scores Winner Tuesday

News: Jason Spezza scored Tuesday's game-winning goal on a power play and added an assist in the 3-2 triumph over Columbus.
Analysis: After taking a step back on Saturday (no points and a minus-2 in Carolina), Jason Spezza got right back on the horse to continue a greater trend of positive play -- he's got five points in his last four games, with four of those coming on the man advantage.

Sens' Spezza Emerging From Slump?

News: Jason Spezza collected a pair of power-play assists and went minus-2 Thursday in a shootout loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: That gives him three power-play points -- a goal and the two helpers -- in his last two games. Jason Spezza had previously collected just five total points in his prior 14 contests (sandwiching a hip injury), an ugly stretch of play that also saw his plus-minus dip from a not-so-hot minus-8 to a truly awful minus-17 -- now minus-19 with Thursday's effort. However, with five shots in each of the last two games and some power-play production to boot, maybe things are starting to come together again for Spezza.

Sens' Spezza Scores In Win

News: Jason Spezza scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Washington.
Analysis: He's got just two goals and an assist in six games since his return from a hip injury, though Tuesday's five shots on goal were his most since returning. It could be that he's just now getting the old form back.

Sens' Spezza Scores In Return

News: Jason Spezza scored a goal as he returned to the lineup for the first time since December 27.
Analysis: Jason Spezza had been sidelined for a couple weeks with a hip injury, but returned to tie the game at two in the second period. The veteran center now has 12 goals and 19 assists in 40 games on the season.

Sens' Spezza Will Play Wednesday

News: Jason Spezza (hip) will play Wednesday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: After getting the green light from the medical staff, Jason Spezza will make his return from a four-game absence Wednesday, likely centering Zack Smith and Mark Stone on the third line. Spezza currently has 30 points (11G, 19A) on the season, but his minus-14 rating is among the worst on the team.
