OTTAWA - Jason Spezza will miss six-to-eight weeks with a torn ligament in his right knee, the Ottawa Senators said Wednesday.

An MRI Tuesday night revealed the damage to his medial collateral ligament.

The slick star suffered the injury during the third period of a 3-2 loss in Toronto on Monday.

He got tangled up with Leafs forward Lee Stempniak during a faceoff and had to leave the game.

Spezza has five goals and 14 assists in 30 games this season.
