Toronto Maple Leafs

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.

Spezza (undisclosed) is on the ice for the Sens' morning skate.

Spezza missed Monday's game with an undisclosed injury, but could return Wednesday. However, he is not taking part in line rushes this morning. Mika Zibanejad is still skating with Spezza's regular linemates Milan Michalek and Ales Hemsky. This suggests Spezza might sit for a second straight game, but monitor his status following the morning skate.
