In a press conference held this morning, Jim Nill officially welcomed Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars, describing him as an elite player in the league and another piece to the puzzle.
Spezza, who will be wearing #90, was handed his new jersey and seemed excited to play for the Stars in this coming season.
“I think there’s a lot of positives to this move for me. First and foremost, I think it gives me a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup and at this point in my career is all I’m looking for,” Spezza said, ” I’ve been the No. 1 center where I’ve been for a long time, but I feel like to win in this League you have to have depth amongst your team and I feel like if the LA Kings and how they won is a lot of strength up the middle, so to be on a team with the center depth they already had before, having myself coming to the fold I think it puts myself and the team hopefully in a good position to compete, so that’s the reason why I feel it’s a great fit for me, is because I’m just a piece to the puzzle.”
