Jason Spezza finally got his ticket stamped out of Ottawa on Tuesday morning when the Senators agreed to deal him (and a guy named Karlsson, but not THAT Karlsson) to the Dallas Stars in a blockbuster deal.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie with the details:

Sure seems like the Stars managed to bring in the 31-year old Spezza for a lot less than most people expected. The veteran center tallied 66 points (23 G, 43 A) for the lowly Sens last season so it will be exciting to see what he can bring to a talented young Stars lineup.
