Cody Ceci may not play against the Hurricanes on Saturday.

He was banged up in Thursday's win over the Jets after taking a hit from Tyler Myers and was not on the ice for Friday's practice. There is a very good chance Ceci won't suit up in Raliegh. If that should come to pass, look for Chris Wideman to dress in Ceci's place.

Cody Ceci notched a goal in the Senators’ 4-1 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Ceci’s goal came with 1:49 remaining in the second period. The 21-year-old blueliner carries a lot of promise, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him eclipse the 30-point mark this season. Bobby Ryan and Mark Stone got the helpers.

Cody Ceci missed his first game of 2014-15 on Tuesday when he was a healthy scratch.

"(Ceci) didn't come out because of his play, he came out because I'm trying to rotate young guys and trying to get a handle on everyone," coach Dave Cameron said. "The deadline is coming here and probably I'm going to be asked questions and I want to be able to give answers." Patrick Wiercioch suited up on Ceci's place. The sophomore defenseman has 14 points in 51 games this year.

Cody Ceci scored a goal in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Carolina.

Coach Paul MacLean likes what he's seen from sophomore blueliner Cody Ceci.

"He's been very consistent," said MacLean. "He came into training camp with a goal of proving he belonged in the league and he's done nothing to disprove that. He's probably been our most consistent defenseman game-to-game." Ceci has been playing alongside Jared Cowen lately. He has contributed five assists, 19 blocks and a plus-4 rating in 15 games this season.

Cody Ceci is determined to not be sent down to the minors to start the season.

"It's no secret I'm the only one that makes sense to send down, but I've just got to make that decision really tough for them," said the 20-year old defender. "I came up (last season) and played really well, but near the end, when I started playing less, I wasn't as effective. So I need to get back to what I was doing when I first got called up." The Senators have seven defenseman on one-way contracts, while Ceci is still playing on his entry-level deal. He performed well in 49 NHL games last season, but he still needs to earn his job at training camp.

Cody Ceci, who has 50 games of NHL experience, is far ahead of the other Senators' prospects at this week's development camp.

This shouldn't come as a surprise. Ceci showed tremendous promise at points during the 2013-14 in Ottawa and should be a fixture on the Sens' blueline for years to come. We expect him to take a huge leap forward and register 35 points this upcoming campaign.

With the Senators' playoff hopes dimming, one Ottawa player who may see some post-season action is Cody Ceci.

How can that be you must be asking? Well Ceci will likely be demoted to the Senatotrs' farm team in Binghamton once the NHL season ends. The Baby Sens will be in the chase for the Calder Cup and Ceci would be a huge boost to their chances.
