  • Senators' Cody Ceci: Secures one-year contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/3/18) Ceci was awarded a one-year contract with the Senators worth $4.3 million through arbitration.

    The 2012 first-round (15th overall) draft pick had his contract settled following a 19-point (five goals, 14 assists) season in a full 82 games. In 2017-18, Ceci set career marks in ice time (23:20 per game), hits (163), blocked shots (171) and power-play points (five assists). He also saw his ice time on the penalty kill expand to a career-high 2:46 per game.

    Senators' Cody Ceci: Evidently not content with qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/5/18) Ceci's camp filed for salary arbitration ahead of Thursday's deadline, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Ceci managed defensive career highs in hits (163) and blocked shots (171) over 82 games last season, but an egregious minus-27 rating -- one that ranked second-to-last on the team in front of forward Zach Smith's minus-32 clip -- won't help his chances of commanding a big raise after he made $2.8 million annually the past two years. Ceci is the only one among Ottawa's regular blueliners seeking a new contract except for some guy named Erik Karlsson; the elite rearguard could be involved in a sign-and-trade this offseason and end up with a max-term deal.

    Senators' Cody Ceci: Garners qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/25/18) Ceci has received a qualifying offer from the Senators.

    Retaining Ceci seems like a wise move for the Senators. The guy finished eighth in the NHL with 171 blocked shots last season, and he was a sneaky bugger in the attacking zone based on an output of five goals and 14 assists over a full season. Expect him to get a modest raise over the two-year, $5.6 million rake he agreed upon in August of 2016.

    Senators' Cody Ceci: Struggled mightily in 2017-18

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/18) Ceci recorded five goals and 19 points this season, but his minus-27 rating was sixth-worst among defenseman.

    Ceci played over 23 minutes per game for the second consecutive campaign in 2017-18 and the results weren't encouraging. While it's true that the Senators endured a disappointing season after reaching the Eastern Conference Final last spring, a good amount of the blame can be directed toward Ceci, as he didn't perform to the level expected of a top-pairing defenseman. A restricted free agent this summer, it's unlikely that Ceci is offered a long-term deal, though he'll be likely be back in Ottawa.

    Senators' Cody Ceci: Chips in two helpers in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/18) Ceci recorded two assists and three blocked shots during Tuesday's 7-4 win over Tampa Bay.

    This was the first time Ceci recorded a point in eight games, and he's now registered only five goals and 13 assists for the campaign. The 24-year-old defenseman has been tasked with more defensive minutes this season, though. Ceci entered Tuesday's game starting 61.0 percent of his five-on-five shifts in his own zone while averaging 2:44 of shorthanded ice time per contest. As a result, he doesn't offer a lot of fantasy upside.
