Jason Spezza (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Spezza sustained the injury when he was smashed into the boards on Thursday. We don't know much about the severity of his injury yet, but placing him on the IR list means that he won't be available for at least a week. He has 18 goals and 40 points in 52 contests in 2015-16. Dallas has called up Radek Faksa as a result of this injury.

It was originally reported as a lower-body ailment. "It looks like a little bit of time," Ruff said when asked about the length of the injury. "I'm going to say it's more than a few days." We may get a better timetable after he is re-evaluated.

Jason Spezza is projected to stay with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin for the start of Tuesday's match against Los Angeles.

Jason Spezza was reunited with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn during Saturday's contest.

The trio have enjoyed success in the past, but Benn and Seguin have primarily played alongside Patrick Sharp in 2015-16. The shakeup seemed to pay off though as Seguin, Benn, and Spezza combined for five points in the third period to propel Dallas to overtime, even if they still ended up suffering a 4-3 loss to San Jose. It will be interesting to see if the struggling Stars stick with a combination of Spezza, Benn, and Seguin on Tuesday.

Spezza has been hot lately, registering at least a point in six of his last seven games. In addition to his 20 assists, he's found the back of the net 14 times in 2015-16, which becomes more impressive when you consider that Spezza was limited to 17 goals in 82 games last season.

Jan 4 - 11:58 AM

Jason Spezza keeps rolling with two more helpers during Thursday's 5-1 win over Nashville.

The wily veteran is now up to 15 assists and 28 points through 39 games this season, and has points in three of his past five games. He may not be aging quite like Joe Thornton or Henrik Sedin, but his ability to produce is still in line with quality second line centers.

Jason Spezza picked up a trio of points over his former arch-rival, Montreal, in Saturday's 6-2 win.

Spezza now has 12 points and 23 points in 33 games this season, and he's well on his way to at least match last season's totals of 17 goals and 62 points.

Jason Spezza put away the Canucks on Thursday night with an empty netter, sealing the 4-2 victory.

Another quality game for one of the most overqualified second line centers in hockey. Spezza won half his draws, helping the team, and took two minors, helping your team (presumably). And he scored, which helps everybody! What a mensch that Spezza is who now has 11 goals and 19 points on the season.
