Jason Spezza should have no regrets about not getting 1000 points

It was just over two weeks ago that Jason Spezza announced his retirement and accepted a job in the Maple Leafs’ front office. The 19-season veteran called it a career after amassing a total of 995 points in 1248 career regular season games and an additional 76 points across 97 career playoff games. However, the ink had not yet dried on Spezza’s new contract as special assistant to Kyle Dubas when speculation began in some corners of the Leafs’ fanbase that he could come out of retirement and rejoin the team.

Jason Spezza Retires a Maple Leaf, Remains a Senators’ Legend

A number of kids who grew up local to Canada’s capital city have something of a shared memory. Maybe a Friday or a Saturday night, just shortly after 10:00PM. Their favourite team, the Ottawa Senators just won. Pizza coupon in hand, they were whisked by their parents through the snaking parking lots in Kanata. The car buzzed away, slow to start in the frigid December night. But there was no amount of sleep or warmth that would rival the feeling of what was just witnessed. An offensive onslaught of fast, physical hockey, propelled by the top line. Jason Spezza may retire as a Toronto Maple Leaf, but he forever remains a Senators’ legend.
