Senators forward Jason Spezza has requested a trade after 11 seasons with the team, general manager Bryan Murray told media members in New York on Wednesday.

Murray said the Senators' team captain has "requested we give him a chance to go elsewhere." Murray said he has received serious interest from a few teams, but he prefers to "send him somewhere we don't have to play him every night," according to Elliotte Friedman of "Hockey Night in Canada."

The news confirms speculation that Spezza could be a trade target this offseason.
