Patrick Wiercioch will tag in for Cody Ceci against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

"Everything you do is in the best interest of the player and the team," Coach Cameron said. "And so you make some tough decisions but those are the two criteria we go by all the time, what's best for the player at this time and does it hurt the team and can the team survive it. Obviously it's an opportunity for someone else." Ottawa likely won't make the playoffs this season, so this is a prime opportunity to continue to show how much they've grown. Ceci for his part has three goals and 14 points in 51 games this season, compared to Wiercioch's four points in 28 games.
