TVOS at The Hockey Writers: Jason Spezza Taking On Leadership Role In Ottawa

Ottawa Senators centre Jason Spezza is emerging as a leader on a Senators squad that became much younger at the trade deadline and his overall game has greatly improved. Since he returned to the lineup from a shoulder injury on February 5th, Spezza has 8 goals and 20 assists in 25 games -  leading by example for the young guns from Binghamton auditioning for a spot on Ottawa's roster next season.

Spezza's winning percentage in the faceoff circle ranks 10th overall in the NHL and he is taking a regular shift killing penalties. He is a key component for the franchise's future success - while he was out of the lineup Ottawa's win/loss record was 1-11-3.
