Sens head coach Guy Boucher is contemplating whether or not to scratch Cody Ceci on Wednesday.

The Senators have been struggling and this is one way to shake things up. Ceci had a minus-2 rating in Sunday's ugly loss to the Jets. He has two goals and three assists in 25 games this season. We'll provide an update on Boucher's decision.

Cody Ceci opened the scoring in Tuesday's 3-2 victory at Vancouver while also posting a plus-1 rating and two blocked shots.

Ceci scored just two goals with 17 points in 79 games last season, so this was quite a surprise. His real value to fantasy owners is his willingness to sacrifice his body, as he logged 159 blocked shots and 111 hits in 2016-17.

The Ottawa Senators will reportedly protect Cody Ceci from the expansion draft.

The fact that they're protecting Ceci is significant because it means they'll either trade Dion Phaneuf, trade Marc Methot (or lose him in the expansion draft) or strike a side deal with Vegas to make sure they don't select Methot. Ceci had two goals and 15 assists while averaging 23:12 of ice time in 79 games last season.

Cody Ceci broke his index finger in the first and third rounds of the playoffs.

He had his hand frozen before games, but stayed in the lineup. "It was displaced a little bit, but then later in the same game, it broke back into place," Ceci said. "It was a rough ride for my finger, but I'm all right now."

Cody Ceci, who missed the third period on Sunday, was being rested.

The Senators were down 5-0 after 40 minutes, so coach Guy Boucher decided that it would be better to keep Ceci out. It's possible that Ceci has been playing through an injury. Either way, he's expected to play in Game 6.

Cody Ceci didn't join the rest of the Senators for the third period of Game 5.

It's not clear why Ceci left the game. It could be to rest a pre-existing injury though. The Senators were down 5-0 going into the third period, so there would be no point to push Ceci if he's been playing hurt.

Cody Ceci got some praise from coach Guy Boucher following a 4-1 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday night.

"I thought (Cody) Ceci was one of the guys who had a really solid game," said Boucher. "(Ceci) had five blocked shots out of our 11, and I thought he played fine from beginning to end. He was plus-1 in a game like that." He also recorded an assist, three hits and one shot on goal in 22:50 of ice time. The point was Ceci's first of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs and his third helper in 15 career postseason appearances.

Cody Ceci logged a team-high 22:57 of ice time in his return to the lineup on Thursday night.

Ceci was leaned on heavily because Erik Karlsson and Marc Methot were sidelined with injuries. His return to action was a surprise because the Senators initially didn't expect him to be able to play this week. Ceci suffered a lower-body injury on Apr. 1 against Winnipeg. Jyrki Jokipakka was a last-minute healthy scratch.
