While the Ottawa Senators were reeling from the knowledge that they would be without centre Jason Spezza for six-to-eight weeks with a torn MCL in his right knee, they did receive some good news on the injury front Wednesday.

Head coach Cory Clouston stated that he hopes to have both goaltender Pascal Leclaire and forward Chris Neil back in the lineup in time for the Senators December 23rd game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Both players have been skating on their own however Clouston believes they should be back skating with the team within the next few days.

Leclaire has missed the past 11 games with a fractured cheekbone he suffered during a fluke accident on November 25th while Neil has missed 10 games with a knee injury.
