Stars' Spezza Scores Sixth Of Season

News: Jason Spezza scored his sixth goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over New Jersey.
Analysis: Jason Spezza now has two goals and five points in his last five games, putting him at 24 points in 29 games on the season. Centering the top line alongside Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, Spezza is on track for a 70-point season in his first year with Dallas. Not known for being a huge goal-scorer, Spezza has still disappointed in that category thus far. We wouldn't be worried though, as Spezza has scored twice in his last five games, meaning he could be starting to catch fire. Keep him rolling.

Stars' Spezza Nets Goal In Loss

News: Jason Spezza lit the lamp for his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jason Spezza got the Stars on the board with a second-period marker, but the team was unable to overcome an early 3-0 deficit. Signed to a four-year extension by the Stars on Nov. 21, Spezza has been rather quiet since inking the new deal, producing two points and a minus-1 rating over five games.

Stars' Spezza Inks Four-Year, $30M Extension

News: Jason Spezza signed a four-year, $30 million extension with the Stars on Friday, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Jason Spezza was set to become an unrestricted free agent in July, so the Stars decided to get ahead of a potential bidding role by inking the center to a long-term deal. Though his team has underachieved to this point in his first season in Dallas, Spezza has been as good as advertised, tallying four goals and 14 assists over 20 games.

Spezza And Stars Close To New Contract

News: Jason Spezza is close to signing a multi-year extension with the Stars, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: Jason Spezza certainly fits in and it benefits him to not have to be the star on the team. He's been bounced around the lineup a lot, but if the team gets it together and gets him consistent wingers it's easy to see how his production could increase some. Either way, he's got value in Dallas and being there in the coming seasons with the possibility of continued play centering Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn means he could have value for years to come.

Spezza Hits Season Low Ice Time For Stars

News: Jason Spezza had an assist and three shots in addition to playing a season low 12:21 in Sunday's loss to Chicago.
Analysis: It wasn't a great game for the team at large as they gave up four third period goals and lost the game, but Jason Spezza continues to be a great play. His 13 assists on the season rank seventh overall in the NHL.

Spezza Scores As Stars Reunite Superline

News: Jason Spezza scored on his only shot in the Stars' 2-0 win over the Kings on Thursday.
Analysis: Jason Spezza scored with assists to Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin as coach Lindy Ruff reunited the "Superline." That line getting back together is good news for anyone who owns any of those three players. They all stand to benefit from playing together, even if the team doesn't.

Stars' Spezza Snaps Slump

News: Jason Spezza had an assist and a minus-3 rating in Saturday's loss to San Jose.
Analysis: Jason Spezza followed up his six-game point streak with a four-game slump that was snapped on Saturday. Spezza's production has dipped with the Stars in a funk, leading coach Lindy Ruff to break up the Super Line, leaving Spezza centering the second line with Ales Hemsky and Curtis McKenzie.

Spezza's Streak Ends In Stars' Loss

News: Jason Spezza had no points, two shots, and 17:54 of ice time in Saturday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: That pointless game ended Jason Spezza's six-game point streak. He's still got strong season totals with his ten assists ranking seventh overall in the NHL.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza On Six-Game Streak

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza On Six-Game Streak

News: Jason Spezza had an assist in Tuesday's OT loss to the Blues, extending his point streak to six games.
Analysis: Over the last six games Jason Spezza has nine assists and two goals. As long as he's playing with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, that line is going to produce at an exciting clip. Hang onto Spezza if you've got him.

10/25/2014

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza On Five-Game Streak

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza On Five-Game Streak

News: Jason Spezza sports a five-game, 10-point scoring streak after dishing a goal and adding an assist in Saturday's loss to the Islanders. He has two goals and eight assists during the streak.
Analysis: Unfortunately, he was minus-4 Saturday night, which drove down his plus/minus to minus-5 on the season. But right now, we're not too worried about the plus/minus. He's showing that at 31, his skills have not disappeared or deteriorated. And in fact, he appears rejuvenated playing in the South. Use him well.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Comes Alive Against Flyers

News: Jason Spezza scored his first goal of the season and added three assists in Saturday's overtime loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: This is the Jason Spezza we thought we would see this season. After a quiet start, Spezza has come alive in a big way, recording six points in his past two games. Playing on the top power-play unit with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, Spezza will continue to get plenty of opportunities to put up points.

Stars' Spezza Delivers Huge Assists

News: With the Stars trailing 2-1 entering the final three minutes Thursday against the Penguins, Jason Spezza assisted on Jamie Benn's game-tying goal and then Tyler Seguin's power-play winner with three seconds remaining.
Analysis: Jason Spezza's been off to a slow start this year, but he delivered two huge assists for his first points since the opener. He also went positive in terms of plus-minus for the first time this year. Much is expected from Spezza in his first-ever season out of Ottawa, so we'll look for the 31-year-old to keep things going.

Stars' Spezza To Reunite With Hemsky On Monday

News: Jason Spezza will be used on the second line next to fellow Senators transplant Ales Hemsky when the Stars play their exhibition opener Monday vs. the Blues, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Coach Lindy Ruff could still shuffle around his top-six forwards before the start of the regular season, but given the chemistry Jason Spezza showed with Hemsky last season, it's highly probable that the duo will combine to form two-thirds of the second line. Valeri Nichushkin, Colton Sceviour and Antoine Roussel are among the players competing for a spot alongside Spezza and Hemsky or the top-line duo of Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. No matter whom ultimately lands on the left side of Spezza, scoring opportunities should be plentiful for the 31-year-old, both at even strength and on the power play.

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

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.
