Ottawa Senators Select Cody Ceci At No. 15
With the No. 15 overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft, the Ottawa Senators have selected Cody Ceci.
HOMETOWN: Orleans, Ontario
WEIGHT: 207 lbs.
JUNIOR TEAM 2011-12: Ottawa 67's / OHL
One of the top defensive prospects in this year's Draft, Ceci had the second-highest scoring for a defenseman in the Ontario Hockey League this year, greatly improving his play from last year.
He has excellent hockey sense and is considered a solid two-way defenseman with a good offensive touch.
Ceci has size and skill coupled with a smart touch on the puck, and has been relied upon in a wide variety of situations, including quarterbacking a power play and playing on the penalty kill. He has good agility, makes solid breakout passes, and wins one-on-one battles.
He has played for Canada's U18 WJC team last year, and was invited to the U20 tryout camp this season.
