Cody Ceci signs a 4-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers

Defenseman Cody Ceci has signed a 4-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers ($3.25M AAV).

Ceci began the 2013-14 season with Binghamton before making his NHL debut on Dec. 12, 2013, in a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. He scored his first NHL goal on Dec. 16, 2013, a game-winner in overtime in a 3-2 victory against the St. Louis Blues.

The 6-foot-2 defenseman played 49 games as a rookie, enough to convince the Senators to give him a place among the top six the following season. As a kid, Ceci remembered waking up Christmas morning and experienced the joy of finding Senators’ game tickets in his stocking. And now he’d been given a chance not only to wear the jersey he’d grown up idolizing, but be a mainstay on the team.

A promising first full season in 2014-15 led to a solid 2015-16 season as Ceci played 81 games, scored five goals, finished with 21 points and led the team with 113 blocked shots.

The 2015-16 season continued to showcase Ceci’s progression, as he finished with 10 goals, including two game-winners, 26 points and 130 blocked shots.

Ceci remained a regular with the Senators through the 2018-19 season. But on July 1, 2019, he was traded to their arch-rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
