Penguins signs Cody Ceci to a one-year deal
One other signing of importance during the weekend was the signing of Cody Ceci for one year with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The information awas confirmed by TSN Insider Darren Dreger. The Penguins signed the unrestricted free agent to a 1.25M salary
Cody Ceci signs a 1 year, $1.25 million deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Good fit for both and opportunity for Ceci to reset like others are doing on short term deals.

The 26 years-old Ceci spent last year with the Toronto Maple Leafs. With the Leafs, he scored one goal and recorded eight points in 56 games last season. During the playoff, Ceci had one point in five games as the Maple Leafs were eliminated in the playoff qualifying round by the Columbus Blue Jackets. The one year signing may be seen as a year to rebuild his status of a top pair defenceman. Ceci will likely fill the hole created by Justin Schultz.
The Penguins have agreed to terms with defenseman Cody Ceci on a one-year contract.
The contract runs through the 2020.21 season and is valued at $1.25 million.
