A couple months ago Jason Spezza was recovering from back surgery when news came out that he had suffered a setback. Well actually, news came out that “his recovery was talking longer than expected.”
The Senators are not saying Spezza has suffered a setback of any kind. Just his rehab is taking a little longer than hoped.

That’s because he messed up his MCL in rehab, which means he was likely braced up in playoffs, which is pretty crazy when you consider his back was still on the mend too. Honestly, what would the hat trick of terrible body parts to have injured as a hockey player be (brain excluded)? Knee, back and…shoulder? Foot? Hip? Either way, he’s almost there.
The news isn’t all bad though:
He will have the knee scoped at some point in the next week and should be fully healed in 2-3 weeks.

He should still get in a relatively full summer of training. Nobody gets started this soon anyway.
