Jason Spezza hasn't been getting much ice time lately.
Spezza has logged between 12:44 and 14:24 minutes in his last four contests. That's in stark contrast to the six games that preceded that where he was on the ice for over 17 minutes in every contest. He hasn't been on a consistent line recently either, although his most common linemates over his last three games have been Jiri Hudler and Tyler Seguin. He's also still getting plenty of power-play time despite his dip in overall minutes. For now this is just something to monitor, but obviously if his role with the team has declined in a more permanent sense then his fantasy value will dip accordingly. Jan 15 - 4:33 AM
