Arizona Coyotes Express Interest in Veteran Edmonton Oiler

Published December 9, 2023 at 9:26 PM

According to a recent report, the Arizona Coyotes have expressed interest in journeyman D Cody Ceci. Arizona has been looking for a dependable veteran to bolster their blue line and Ceci may be a good solution.

How This Potential Trade Could Benefit Each Team

As it currently stands Arizona has a very young and relatively inexperienced team, so there is need for a veteran presence on D. The team has been exploring their options. They have reportedly asked about other options, but it appears that Cody Ceci would be a much more cost effective choice.

Ceci currently has a cap hit of $3.25 million AAV, which would be very manageable for the Coyotes.

From the Oilers perspective, this could be a way to shed some extra cap which would free up them up to pursue other options as they look to make a playoff push.

Ceci's Performance This Season for the Oilers

Through 24 games this season Ceci has 0 goals and 6 assists. He's looked solid defensively however as he has a +/- of +5 so far. This potential trade could be beneficial for both parties.

More details to follow.
