Senators call up Spezza

Jason Spezza made his NHL debut tonight in Boston.

Anointed as the "next best thing" among hockey experts, Spezza wore #39 for the Ottawa Senators. Spezza was called up from the AHL because of an injury to Radek Bonk. He collected his first point by assisting on a Marian Hossa goal. Fans expect Spezza to be the next superstar having done something that only three other NHL players have done - play for Team Canada in the world Juniors at age 18. Only Lemieux, Gretsky, and 2002 draftee Bouwmeister have that honor.
