The agent for Jason Spezza has confirmed the Ottawa Senators' center signed Wednesday with Rapperswil-Jona of the Swiss Elite League for the duration of the current work stoppage.

Spezza tied his career-best with 34 goals last season and led the team with 84 points. He added three goals and two assists in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.
