Cody Ceci (born December 21, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player with the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL).

After playing junior-age ice hockey with the Ottawa 67's, Cody was selected 15th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Senators.

He made his NHL debut in the 2013–14 season after playing for the Senators' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, Binghamton Senators.

Playing CareerEdit

JuniorEdit

After being drafted, Cody joined the Ottawa 67's. While playing with the Ottawa 67's, he attended Carleton University.

With the Ottawa 67's in 2011–12, he finished second in scoring amongst all OHL defenseman with 60 points. On August 23, 2012, he signed a three-year entry level contract with the Senators.

On January 8, 2013, in an effort to overtake the London Knights in the OHL's Western Conference, the Owen Sound Attack obtained Ceci from the 67's. Cody did not have NHL callup rights and was thus able to finish the season in junior.

Once the Attack were eliminated, he was called up to finish the season in the AHL with the Binghamton Senators, playing in the team's final three games of the regular season.

Paired on defence with team captain Mark Borowiecki, Cody scored his first professional point in his second game with Binghamton and scored his first professional goal a day later in the season finale.

ProfessionalEdit

In October of 2013, Cody was assigned to the Binghamton Senators after training camp.

After a suspension to Senators defenceman Jared Cowen, he was called up to Ottawa in December and played his first game in the NHL on December 12, 2013 in Ottawa against the Buffalo Sabres, a 2–1 win for Ottawa.

Two games later, on December 16, 2013 at 3:59 of overtime against goaltender Brian Elliott of the St. Louis Blues, he scored his first NHL goal, to win the game 3-2.

As of the beginning of the 2016-2017 season, Cody has signed a 2-year 5-million dollar contract extension. In the upcoming season, he will make 2.8 million and the following 3.2 million.
