Jason Spezza is still being evaluated by doctors and will not play tonight vs MTL. — Ian Mendes (@ian_mendes) January 30, 2013 No one is saying explicitly what's going on with Spezza and the "upper-body injury" which has kept him off the ice since Sunday. But when Jason was spotted yesterday en route to Toronto purportedly to see a specialist, well conclusions will be jumped to: Jason Spezza in the Ottawa airport on my way back to #Sask . Traded?Apparently he was just going for upper body injury treatment. #Sens — Kyle Toffan (@BaronFleximan) January 29, 2013 asdfa @ian_mendes saw Spezza at the Ottawa airport earlier - heading to TO for a consult? — Tim MacKinnon (@tmackinn) January 29, 2013 So naturally the question will be asked, as Ken Warren did on SenatorsExtra: "Could it be a return of the back problems Spezza has experienced in the past?" It should be noted as well that Bob McKenzie sounded this cryptic note to Team1200 last night during the pre-game show: "But Jason Spezza comes up today with the old injury, and won't play tonight as understand it." And the official word via MacLean this afternoon: "We're waiting on the evaluation. We don't know," said MacLean when asked if Spezza will be out for extended period. #Sens — Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch) January 30, 2013 Let's hope it's not the latter.
