Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza will return from injury for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Spezza missed most of the lockout-shortened season with a back injury.
Coach Paul MacLean and Spezza told reporters after practice Saturday that Spezza will play in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal game on Sunday. But they are not sure how much he will be able to play.
"I've gone through a full recovery," Spezza said. "Obviously being off a long time you're never going to be quite the same right away but the doctors said I'm fine. I've put in the work."
Pittsburgh leads the best-of-seven series 2-0.
