Jason Spezza has a “minor” groin injury that will keep him out of the team’s split-quad games against the New York Islanders Sunday night. Spezza’s continued absence has led to speculation he might not be ready to start the regular season, but coach Paul MacLean suggested that wouldn’t be an issue.
“Jason Spezza has a minor groin injury that we are managing to get him to Oct. 4 so he can play,” MacLean said following practice at the Canadian Tire Centre. “We’re just making sure he’s ready to play the opener, which is more important than an exhibition game.”
