Senators' Spezza played through knee injury
Ottawa Senators' Jason Spezza played through knee injury.

Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza told reporters Monday he sustained a knee injury during his recovery from back surgery, which delayed his return to the lineup.

Spezza said he tore the meniscus in his knee while training but was able to work through it and return to the lineup for the final three games of the Senators' Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Surgery will be needed to fix his knee, Spezza said, and said he'll have the procedure performed sometime in the next week. He estimated recovery time at 2-3 weeks.

The Senators were eliminated from the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Penguins in five games.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
