3. Jason Spezza (2001, 1st Round, 2nd Overall)

After being drafted by the Sens in 2001, it wouldn’t take Spezza long to start lighting the league up like a Christmas tree.

In 686 games for Ottawa, the Toronto native racked up 687 points, or just over one point per game. A former captain and alternate captain, Spezza went to the All-Star Game twice as a Senator and had nine 60-plus point seasons with the club. He was also a figurehead during the playoffs, scoring 52 points in 56 games.

Spezza continues to play in the NHL today as a member of the Dallas Stars, but he will always be remembered for his tenure with the Ottawa Senators.
