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.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.

— Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards said after their 4-3 OT win vs. Pittsburgh in Game 2, the franchise's first ever Stanley Cup Playoff victory
