Spezza found twine in Thursday's 7-3 home loss to the Predators. The respected veteran helped spark a run of three unanswered goals in the second period, but that was it for the Stars, who will wrap up their season against the Avalanche at home Saturday. The alternate captain has two more years left on his contract valued at $7.5 million annually before he'll become an unrestricted free agent; the deal also includes a modified no-trade clause.
Spezza picked up a goal and assist in Sunday's 6-3 loss against the Lightning. Spezza has goals in back-to-back games, and a total of six markers and 14 points over his past 15. While his most productive offensive days are in the rear-view mirror, the 33-year-old is still a solid point producer in most fantasy pools.
Spezza scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes. Spezza's goal scoring has fallen off a cliff this season -- this was just his 14th of the season after tallying 33 last year. He will fall shy of recording his fourth straight 60-point season and at 33, his best is well behind him. But Spezza has put up eight points (two goals, six assists) in his last 10 games and may be a decent point producer until season's end.
Spezza posted three assists and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-1 win against the Sharks. Spezza didn't show any ill effects of the back spasms which forced him to miss the past two games. He is enjoying a very productive March, posting three goals with 11 points through nine games. As long as he is posting at a point-per-game clip he is a solid fantasy option across the board. He remains a fairly decent bargain in DFS play, too.
Spezza (back) is in the lineup for Friday night's game against the Sharks. Despite a tone earlier in the day that suggested he wouldn't play Friday, Spezza will return to action after missing just two games. He could see less ice time than he's used to however, as he is projected to skate on the Stars' fourth line with Curtis McKenzie and Adam Cracknell.
