Senators send Ceci back to junior team

The Ottawa Senators have announced defenseman Cody Ceci and forward Mike Hoffman will not be part of the season-opening roster.

Ceci, the 15th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, will be returned to his junior team, the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League. In 44 games this season with the Attack and Ottawa 67s, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound defenseman is second among OHL blueliners with 30 assists and 41 points.

Hoffman, 23, is a 2009 fifth-round pick who will be sent back to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. In 34 AHL games this season, Hoffman is third on the team with 22 points.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
