12/14/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Stars coach Lindy Ruff moved Jason Spezza back to the top line with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, and Spezza responded with a goal and an assist on Saturday.
Insight: Spezza assisted Seguin's goal to start the game and then fewer than three minutes later, Seguin assisted Spezza's score. Spezza has six goals and 18 assists this season, and he is a must-start when he is on the top line. Unfortunately, he also comes with a minus-nine rating.
 
10/25/2014 9:50:00 PM
Description: Stars center Jason Spezza had two points, but was also -4 on the night against the Islanders.
Insight: He now has 11 points on the season, but also a -5 rating overall. As long as Spezza is centering Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, he should be able to produce nice numbers.
 
Hot10/25/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: Stars center Jason Spezza will continue to center the top-line alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin.
Insight: Seguin has moved to right wing to make room for Spezza on the top line. It has paid huge dividends as the Dallas first line is one of the best units in the league. Benn has scored in five straight games and Spezza has points in the last four contests. Obviously, Benn, Spezza and Seguin are must-starts.
 
Hot10/21/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Dallas center Jason Spezza will play on the Stars top line Tuesday.
Insight: Playing alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin can only help his fantasy value. Spezza may not be a 90-point scorer like he was in Ottawa for so many seasons, but he's got seven points in his first five games.
 
9/20/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Dallas' newly-acquired center Jason Spezza figures to play on a solid second line with Antoine Roussel and Ales Hemsky.
Insight: Spezza isn't going to be a 90-point scorer like he was in Ottawa for so many seasons, but 60-70 points is certainly possible.
 
7/1/2014 8:09:00 PM
Description: The Senators have traded Jason Spezza to the Stars along with Ludvig Karlsson for Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul, Alex Chiasson and a 2015 second-round pick.
Insight: This is the second straight offseason the Stars have acquired a frontline center. Spezza is likely to center the team's second line with free-agent acquisition Ales Hemsky at right wing. He shouldn't lose any fantasy value from the move.
 
6/11/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza has asked for a trade. SOURCE: Bruce Garrioch, Ottawa Sun
Insight: We've heard rumblings about this for a while so it isn't exactly breaking news that Spezza wants out of Ottawa. He was 14th among centers in scoring this year with 66 points in 75 games.
 
5/12/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Ottawa center Jason Spezza could be on the move this offseason.
Insight: Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos says the Senators are shopping him to Western Conference teams. It's possible Ottawa could pull the trigger prior to the draft on June 27th.
 
4/8/2014 9:53:00 PM
Description: Jason Spezza led the Senators with two goals Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Islanders.
Insight: Spezza has now scored 20 or more goals eight times in his career including seven of the last eight seasons. The Blue Jackets' win over Phoenix on Tuesday eliminated Ottawa from the postseason. It's the first time the Senators have missed the playoffs since 2011.
 
Hot4/2/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (lower body) will miss Wednesday's game, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: Spezza (19 G, 42 A, -23, 206 SOG), who had 16 points in 14 games in March, will miss his second straight game.
 
Hot3/31/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (lower body) will not play Monday, according to the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: Spezza (19 G, 42 A, -23, 206 SOG) had 16 points in 14 games in March. He could be back Wednesday.
 
Hot3/8/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza had three helpers Saturday at Winnipeg.
Insight: Spezza has been active lately, recording 11 points and 26 SOG his last eight games. He has 50 points in 59 games, though his -22 damages his fantasy value.
 
Hot3/5/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza scored his 16th goal of the season Tuesday at Edmonton.
Insight: Spezza has delivered eight points in his last six games and has 47 points in 57 games this season. His -23 differential damages his fantasy value, however, and he would benefit from a trade before Wednesday's deadline.
 
Hot2/5/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza has generated 10 points (three goals) in his last eight games.
Insight: Spezza had three points Tuesday and has produced four multi-point games in his last seven. He has 42 points (15 goals), 150 SOG and 34 PIM in 52 games, but his career worst -21 differential hurts his value.
 
1/8/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) will return to the lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Spezza missed the last four games. He has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games, but his -14 hurts his fantasy value.
 
1/4/2014 3:39:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) will sit out Saturday, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: Spezza stayed in Ottawa to skate and receive treatment. He'll miss his fourth straight game Saturday at Montreal.
 
1/3/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) has missed three straight games, but said he doesn't expect it to be a long-term injury. SOURCE: tsn.ca
Insight: Spezza doesn't have a timetable for his return but said he is making progress. Her's a big-time point scorer with 11 goals and 19 assists in 39 games, but after missing all but five games last season the team is likely to play it conservatively.
 
1/2/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip) will miss his third straight game Thursday but said he doesn't expect it to be a long-term injury. SOURCE: tsn.ca
Insight: Spezza is dealing with a hip flexor injury. He doesn't have a timetable for his return but said he is making progress. "We want to make sure that I squash it so that it's like anything, groins, hips, you don't want them to linger," Spezza said.
 
12/30/2013 2:12:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip) missed Saturday's game and will also miss Monday's game against the Capitals.
Insight: Spezza has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games, but also owns a dismal -14 rating on the season. He's been close to a point-per-game center for the last nine years.
 
12/28/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (lower body) will miss Saturday's game, according to Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Insight: Spezza only has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games and also is a -14 on the season.
