NEWS: Sens take 67s’ Cody Ceci 15th overall

Great night for Ottawa hockey fans at the Senators chose the 67s Cody Ceci with the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Here’s the selection video:

Ceci is a right shooting defenseman from Orleans and played the last three season with the Ottawa 67s.  He’s 6 feet tall and weighs an impressive (for his age) 206 pounds!

Hockey’s Future describes him as follows:

Ceci performed in all situations for the 67’s, killing penalties and effectively serving as a triggerman on the power play. He’s also a solid puck distributor and has good size — even if he doesn’t always use it to his best advantage.  The Orleans, Ontario native has transformed himself from a defense-first-second-and-third blueliner into a better-than-average two-way player who has displayed an unexpected offensive upside.

Last season he played at almost a point per game base.


The Senators will be able to keep an even better eye on Ceci than you’d think.  Because of the Lansdowne / Civic Centre facelift, Ceci and the 67s will be sharing Scotiabank Place next season with the Senators… here’s hoping Karlsson can give him a few pointers!

Here’s Ceci’s video profile from the NHL Draft Combine:
