Spezza returning to Ottawa

Ottawa Senators centre Jason Spezza is leaving the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers of the Swiss Elite League to return to North America.

Spezza signed with the team after the NHL imposed what is now a 109-day lockout in the fall.

In addition to experiencing European hockey for the first time, Spezza helped Canada win the Spengler Cup final.

The Lakers made the announcement on their web site Wednesday. Spezza scored 9 goals and 21 assists in 28 games with the team.
