NewsCody Ceci and forward Mike Hoffman were Ottawa's final two roster cuts.
ImpactCeci thoroughly enjoyed the abbreviated camp. "I mean, just having a locker beside (Jason) Spezza in the room in the back and then just being partnered with (Chris) Phillips of course, growing up I've always watched him, so being his D partner is something else for me because I am a local guy," he said. He will rejoin the Owen Sound Attack of the OHL after he was traded there this season by the Ottawa 67's. Hoffman will return to AHL Binghamton, where he has 22 points in 34 games this year.
