Before he was the Ottawa Senators' #1 centre, Jason Spezza was dubbed 'The Next One' during his OHL career.

You would have been hard pressed to find a bigger Spezza fan than Don Cherry himself, who owned and managed the Mississauga IceDogs during Spezza's time there. 14 years after this picture was taken, Spezza has racked up 611 NHL games, 228 goals, 621 points and a driver's license. Not bad. Not bad at all.

He turns 30 today.

Happy Birthday Jason!
