Spezza Out An Indefinite Period With Shoulder Injury

Numerous reports are Jason Spezza is out long-term with a shoulder injury.

The severity of the injury may not be determined for another week.

added 2:27pm, from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet,

The Ottawa Senators will have to play without their No. 1 centre for the foreseeable future.

Jason Spezza will be sidelined with a right shoulder injury that will keep him away from the ice for the next few weeks.

The encouraging news for the Senators is that the injury should not require surgery and Spezza should be able to return this season - although it will likely be after the NHL All-Star break.

“It’s going to be a while. I’ve never hurt my shoulder before, so there’s kind of a lot of grey area right now,” Spezza said on Monday morning, with his right arm in a sling. “It seems like it’s going to be fine without surgery. But it just happened, so it’s still fresh. We’ll get a better idea in the next week or so.”
