Jason Spezza has been traded to the Dallas Stars. The 31-year-old center goes from the Senators, along with prospect Ludvig Karlsson, in return for winger Alex Chiasson, prospects Alex Guptill and Nicholas Paul, plus a second-round draft pick in 2015.
Spezza is signed for one more season for a salary of $4 million and a cap hit of $7 million. He had 25 goals and 43 assists for the Sens last season. A second overall pick in 2001, Spezza has 687 points in 686 NHL games.
Chiasson, 23, had 13 goals and 22 assists as a winger for the Stars in 2013-14. He can become a restricted free agent next summer.
For the Sens, the deal frees up a significant amount of cap space. And according to the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch, who first reported the trade, the Sens “aren’t done by a long-shot. More trades coming today.”
