Cody Ceci agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.
The 26-year-old defenseman, who was an unrestricted free agent, scored eight points (one goal, seven assists) in 56 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season and one goal in five Stanley Cup Playoff games.
“Cody is a two-way defenseman who plays with size and a speed game that fits our system well,” Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. “He brings both regular season and playoff experience, and can be utilized on the penalty kill.”
