Jason Spezza was back on the ice this morning at Scotiabank Place today.

The Senators centre, who is suffering from an undisclosed injury, will be in the lineup tonight against the Nashville Predators.

"He's fine," said coach Cory Clouston.

Spezza said he's going to need to take the odd practice off.

"Hopefully I can keep playing the games and if I need the odd day off I will take the odd day off," said Spezza. "You don't want to miss games, especially when you feel like you can play through."

With Peter Regin ready to return from a shoulder injury that forced him to miss three games, the Senators will scratch winger Shean Donovan.

Goaltender Pascal Leclaire will make the start against the Predators.
