The Ottawa Senators have inked Cody Ceci into a 2 year deal worth $2.8M AAV.

 

The 22-year-old had multiple career highs. In 75 games, he scored 10 goals, 16 assists, and 26 points, while amassing 18 penalty minutes.

 

Ceci also scored a goal and 5 assists for Team Canada in the World Hockey Championship in Russia.

 

Roughly 10 days ago, it was predicted by the Senators GM, Pierre Dorion, that a deal would be completed in a couple weeks. His timeline proved accurate.

 

The Sens offered both long term and short term deals. The developing defenseman ultimately settled for years. Likely expecting a pay raise when he becomes a Restricted Free Agent (RFA) in 2 years.

 

The Ottawa native was selected 15th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Many expect Ceci to become a staple of Ottawa’s blueline in years to come. All-in-all, an important signing for Dorion and the Senators.
