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.

Cody Ceci logged a team-high 27:36 of ice time Sunday against Edmonton.

"It's great. It's a lot of fun. You're really involved in the game that way," Ceci said. "(Erik) Karlsson and (Marc) Methot were matched up against (Connor) McDavid's line, so there was a lot of ice time against the other lines. They were saving them for the top line." He benefited from the confidence boost by contributing two assists. Ceci has posted just one goal and five points in 39 games this season. He would like to get on the scoresheet more, but his focus has been on improving defensively.

Cody Ceci found his game once he starting playing with Dion Phaneuf.

Ceci has evolved into a strong two-way force since Phaneuf arrived in Ottawa a month ago.

Keep an eye on Ceci and don't forget him on draft day as he could be a nice developing sleeper pick.
