Spezza will be back in the Stars lineup on Tuesday after being a healthy scratch on Monday.

Spezza was a healthy scratch in Boston on Monday afternoon but the Stars apparently have some players who are nicked up coming into the tail-end of their back-to-back, so Spezza will draw back into the lineup tonight. Spezza is currently riding a 14-game goalless drought.

Spezza (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Spezza left Monday’s practice with an injury and did not take part in the Stars’ morning skate on Tuesday, so all signs are pointing towards Spezza not play vs. the Jets. Head coach Lindy Ruff said that Spezza’s status for tonight’s game is “still a decision that we have to make,” so consider him a game-time decision.

The Stars have signed Spezza to a four-year contract extension worth $30 million ($7.5 AAV).

Spezza was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He was acquired from Ottawa in July and has recorded four goals and 14 assists (18 points) in 20 games this season. He was making an average annual salary of seven million during his current seven-year deal, so his new deal represents a $500K raise each season.
