Jason Spezza

Two Points For Stars' Spezza

News: Jason Spezza picked up two assists in Monday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.
Analysis: The pair of apples gives the first-year Star 61 points on the year, marking the seventh time he's reached the 60-point plateau in his career. He's been effective starring in a second-line scoring role behind studs Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, despite the fact that his 17 goals are the lowest of his career over a full season.

Spezza's Two Points Not Enough In Stars Loss

News: Jason Spezza had a goal and an assist in Dallas' loss to Calgary on Monday.
Analysis: Jason Spezza is on pace to fall under the 20-goal mark for the first time since the 2005-06 season -- a season where he scored 19 goals in 68 games. It's the slowest scoring pace of his career. While Dallas is certainly a better team with the 31-year-old center on the roster, his fantasy value has declined with the move to the Central Division.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Nets Two Points Saturday

News: Jason Spezza scored his 16th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: A much-needed offensive outburst from Jason Spezza, who had managed just one assist in his last nine games. Since Tyler Seguin has returned, Spezza is no longer playing with Jamie Benn, which could be a potential explanation for his downward trend in production. He remains a strong fantasy option though, as he's skating on the top power-play unit and has managed 55 points in 72 games.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Records PP Assist Saturday

News: Jason Spezza recorded a power-play assist and attempted five shots on goal in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: The return of Tyler Seguin (knee) on Saturday didn't seem to hinder Jason Spezza's production. In fact, Spezza saw 18:39 of ice time, about a minute more than he's averaged this season, and also set up the first of Seguin's two goals on the night. While Spezza will miss out on skating next to Jamie Benn on the first line at even strength, he'll still see enough action with Benn and Seguin on the power play to make him an asset in most formats.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza Scores Twice In Loss

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Scores Twice In Loss

News: Jason Spezza scored a power-play goal and an even-strength marker in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Jason Spezza's been on fire of late, recording five goals and 12 points in his last eight games. Skating on the top line with Jamie Benn, the 31-year-old has returned to being a must-own in all formats. With 50 points in 60 games, Spezza is going to need to keep producing if the Stars want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Has Assist Trick

News: Jason Spezza dished out assists on all three goals of Jamie Benn's hat trick Tuesday in a win over the Blues. He finished plus-2 on the evening.
Analysis: Jason Spezza's seeing an uptick in responsibility with Tyler Seguin injured, and he's responded by maintaining his ongoing hot streak -- he has points in six consecutive games, with an outstanding three goals and seven helpers in that span.

2/15/2015

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Spezza Lone Scorer For Stars In Defeat

Jason Spezza

Spezza Lone Scorer For Stars In Defeat

News: Jason Spezza was the whole of Dallas' offense Saturday against the Avalanche, bagging a goal on one of his three shot attempts in the 4-1 loss.
Analysis: With Tyler Seguin missing the first game in what is projected to be a 3-to-6-week absence, Jason Spezza was thrust into a featured role for the Stars. He saw 20:15 of ice time in the contest, more than three minutes higher than his average for the season. With three goals and five assists over seven February contests, Spezza's fantasy value was already on the upswing, but it may only rise from here if he sees more consistent action next to Jamie Benn, who assisted on the center's goal Saturday.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza Extends Point Streak To Three Games

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Extends Point Streak To Three Games

News: Jason Spezza had an assist, a minus-1 rating, and two penalty minutes in Tuesday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Jason Spezza has points in three straight games, totaling a goal and four assists in that span. However, his inconsistent ice time continues to frustrate owners. In each of the last two games he's logged just over 14 and a half minutes. In the two before that, he was back up around 18-19 minutes after having been down around 14 consistently before those games. His ice time has been a roller coaster and it doesn't look like it's going to stop any time soon.

Stars' Spezza Contributes Three Points In Win

News: Jason Spezza scored his 10th goal of the season and dished out two assists in Sunday's win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Jason Spezza is piling up the points consistently of late, recording three goals and 12 points in his last 11 games. Spezza is basically producing at a point-per-game pace now, having been held of the scoresheet only three times in his last 14 outings. While his 10 goals are low, the second-line center is heating up in that department and more are likely on the way. If he happens to be available, he's definitely worth adding.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Spezza Adds Assist In Stars Shootout Loss

Jason Spezza

Spezza Adds Assist In Stars Shootout Loss

News: Jason Spezza had an assist and a pair of shots through 14:08 of ice time in Tuesday's shootout loss to Colorado.
Analysis: Jason Spezza continues to be a bit goal starved with just nine goals on the season, but he is managing to put up a solid number of assists. Over the last eight games he has two goals and six assists, so things are trending in the right direction.

1/28/2015

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Dallas' Spezza On Five-Game Point Streak

Jason Spezza

Dallas' Spezza On Five-Game Point Streak

News: Jason Spezza added an assist and three shots in Tuesday's loss to the Habs.
Analysis: That's the fifth straight game with an assist for Jason Spezza, who has 27 on the season. Oddly, during that streak, he's had two games with lower than usual ice time, clocking only 14:03 on Tuesday and just 10:55 against Chicago on January 18. There's little to worry about there though. Spezza is producing and there's no reason that won't continue.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza Starting To Heat Up

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Starting To Heat Up

News: Jason Spezza notched an assist and attempted three shots in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Jason Spezza has now recorded a point in four straight games, marking his second-longest streak of the season. His production had started to wane in the latter part of December, but Spezza seems to have settled back into a comfort zone as the Stars' second-line center. His days of making an annual push for 80-plus points may be over, but he still represents a top-notch complement to first-line studs Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Scores Eighth Goal

News: Jason Spezza scored his eighth goal of the season, had an assist and collected four PIM in Saturday's win over Washington.
Analysis: The good times continue to roll for Jason Spezza, who has recorded at least one point in six of his last nine outings. The second-line center now has 32 points in 44 games on the season, to go with a minus-5 rating. While he isn't racking up the goals, Spezza's 24 assists are 25th most in the NHL. With a 60-point season likely, the 31-year-old is a safe and dependable option in most formats.

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Has Points In Back To Back Games

News: Jason Spezza had an assist, a plus-1 rating, and three shots in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: That assist gives Jason Spezza points in back-to-back games. That shouldn't be notable for a guy who has cracked 90 points twice in his career, but he hasn't had points in back-to-back games since December 9 and 13. His 29 points on the season are respectable, but he's putting them up at a much slower pace than last season.

Stars' Spezza Finally Nets Goal

News: Jason Spezza tallied a goal -- his first since Dec. 13 -- in Thursday's loss to the Predators.
Analysis: That ended a 10-game stretch in which Jason Spezza failed to find the net, which qualifies as an eternity for a player that has topped the 20-goal mark in his last seven full seasons. With only seven goals at the midway point of his first season in Dallas, Spezza looks poised to fall well below that threshold, which may give the Stars some buyer's remorse over the four-year, $30 million extension they signed the center to back in November.

Jason Spezza, C, DAL Stars' Spezza Amid Prolonged Slump

Jason Spezza

Stars' Spezza Amid Prolonged Slump

News: Jason Spezza contributed an assist while skating just 12:35 in Sunday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The recently-extended center remains amid his longest offensive drought of the season at the moment, as he's gone without a goal since Dec. 13 and has picked up only three assists in his nine games since that date. His dwindling shot totals are particularly alarming; he's provided two or fewer attempts in each of his last five contests. It's probably best to stash him on the bench until he starts clicking again on the Stars' second line.

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.

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.
