Last night against the Winnipeg Jets, Jason Spezza set out to remind us that he is, in fact, very good at hockey.
He’s currently 4th in the NHL in scoring with 81 points (31 goals), and is a major reason that the Sens are on the verge of making playoffs in a season where a lot of people (cough*me*cough) thought they may finish near the basement.
One thing he’s always done is score some ridiculous highlight reel goals. In the wake of last night’s super-double-amazing assist, here are five other reminders why Spezza’s a special player:
The tuck-in against Johnson in January:
The slap-bomb waterbottle blow-up in February:
The RIDICULOUS coast-to-coaster in March of 2010:
The wide-drive in November of 2010:
And this dangle from way back in 2006:
If you can think of any others, feel free to add them in the comment section below. Dude is A-ohhhhh-kayyy at hockey.
