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. Oct 11 - 1:18 AM

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

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.

Jyrki Jokipakka was a last-minute healthy scratch.

Cody Ceci exited Saturday's game against Winnipeg because of a lower-body injury.

The Ottawa Senators are one of the teams linked to Matt Duchene, but according to the Ottawa Citizen, they aren't willing to trade Cody Ceci to get it done.

Ceci hasn't put up great offensive numbers this year, but he's a young and valuable piece of his team's defense. The 23-year-old is averaging over 23 minutes of ice time per game for the Sens this season. The fact that they don't want to trade him shows just how valuable he is to the organization.
