Jason Spezza of the Ottawa Senators is one of the NHL’s premier centremen. At 29, he is still at the peak of his abilities, and for most of his NHL career has been close to a point-a-game player. Several years ago he centred Sens’ captain Daniel Alfredsson and Dany Heatley (now playing with the Minnesota Wild) on one of the league’s most dangerous and productive lines. Though Spezza has had nagging back problems for many years, when healthy and fit he is capable of dominating a game with his size, skill, and scoring touch.
