Jason Spezza (back) has been cleared to ramp up his workouts "a tad more."

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Senators center was riding the stationary bike beore his team's game and told him that he's received "medical clearance to advance his workout routine a tad more." This is obviously good news but it remains to be seen how his progress will be as he tests his surgically-repaired back. He's on the fifth week of a recovery that was originally pegged for six-to-eight weeks.
