The Senators re-signed Cody Ceci to a two-year deal worth $5.6 million ($2.8M AAV).
Ceci, 22, had his best offensive season of his young career in 2015-16, collecting 10 goals and 16 assists (26 points) in 75 games. The former 15th overall pick has 56 career points (18G / 38A) in his first 205 NHL games. Ceci will spend the 2016-17 season on the Senators’ second pairing behind Erik Karlsson.
Ceci is not at practice this morning after being cut on the ear on Monday.
Ceci was hit by a Shea Weber shot on Monday and left the game right away. He tweeted after the game that he only suffered a cut and was shaken, but is OK. The Senators don't play until Saturday, so monitor Ceci's status throughout the week.
The Senators have recalled Cody Ceci and he will make his NHL debut tonight.
Ceci was the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. The 19-year-old is in his first full season with Binghamton and has two goals and 15 assists in 24 games. He is a great defensive prospect and is known for both his offensive and defensive prowess. He is a great power-play guy, but likely won't be with the Senators long enough to garner fantasy value. He will play for Marc Methout, who is out with the flu.
