Jason Spezza is on the injured reserve and has missed a third consecutive game as of Thursday, but it appears that he’s working back from what he deemed a hip flexor injury. He shared as much with the media today, as you can see in the video below:

The 30-year-old has been riddled with injuries lately. A significant back ailment derailed most his 2012-13 campaign while he also struggled with a groin injury earlier this season.

When he’s been healthy, he’s been productive, with 30 points in 39 games.

It appears that there’s no timetable regarding when exactly he’ll be back, but it sounds like he’s making positive progress.
