Spezza found twine in Thursday's 7-3 home loss to the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

The respected veteran helped spark a run of three unanswered goals in the second period, but that was it for the Stars, who will wrap up their season against the Avalanche at home Saturday. The alternate captain has two more years left on his contract valued at $7.5 million annually before he'll become an unrestricted free agent -- the deal also includes a modified no-trade clause.

Spezza picked up a goal and assist in Sunday's 6-3 loss against the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Spezza has goals in back-to-back games, and a total of six markers and 14 points over his past 15 outings. While his most productive offensive days are in the rear-view mirror the 33-year-old is still a solid point producer in most fantasy pools.

Spezza scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Spezza's goal scoring has fallen off a cliff this season -- this was just his 14th of the season after tallying 33 last year. He will fall shy of recording his fourth-straight 60-point season and at 33, his best is well behind him. But Spezza has put up eight points (two goals, six assists) in his last 10 games and may be a decent point producer until season's end.

Spezza posted three assists and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-1 win against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Spezza is enjoying a very productive March, posting three goals with 11 points through nine games. As long as he is posting at a point-per-game clip he is a solid fantasy option across the board. He remains a fairly decent bargain in DFS play, too.

Spezza (back) is in the lineup for Friday night's game against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

Despite a tone earlier in the day that suggested he wouldn't play Friday, Spezza will return to action after missing just two games. He could see less ice time than he's used to however, as he is projected to skate on the Stars' fourth line with Curtis McKenzie and Adam Cracknell.

Spezza (back) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Sharks, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Spezza, who missed his second straight game Thursday due to back spasms, will thus take aim at a possible return to action Sunday against New Jersey. The veteran pivot has logged 12 goals and 42 points, to go along with a minus-18 rating in 59 games to date.

Spezza (back spasms) won't play Thursday against Chicago, NHL.com's Brian Hedger reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Spezza not having traveled to Chicago for the game, the veteran forward's next chance to suit up will arrive Friday, with the Stars back at home to face the Sharks.

Spezza (back) missed practice Wednesday, putting his status for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks in doubt.

EDGE Analysis

The prolific veteran was able to skate in Wednesday's session, but one would think he'll need to partake in a practice or two before rejoining the lineup. Until he gets green lit for a return, Spezza's prime first-line spot -- including work on the power play -- is likely to remain occupied by Cody Eakin.

Spezza missed Monday's game against San Jose due to back spasms, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Recovery timetables for back injuries are notoriously difficult to predict, and there's no reason for the Stars to rush Spezza back at this point in the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran pivot miss at least a few more contests while rehabbing his latest ailment. A more definite timeline for Spezza's return to the lineup should be released once he's able to resume skating.

Spezza is considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Sharks after he exited practice Sunday due to back spasms, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Stars have little incentive to rush the veteran into action, so unless his back improves dramatically overnight, it seems they will be without a key piece Monday. Fortunately, the team has a decent shot at getting Jamie Benn (eye) back in the lineup, lessening the blow of Spezza's probable absence. Still, the team would need to not only shuffle their lines but also may need to add a new face to the man advantage.
