Found June 22, 2012 on The 6th Sens:
With the 15th overall selection the Ottawa Senators have selected...from the Ottawa 67's Cody Ceci.At the very least the Ottawa Sun will be psyched.But truth be told Ceci is very highly touted prospect, one I honestly did not think would be available at 15.Here's Corey Pronman's scouting report: Ceci is a very sound all-around defenseman who doesn't have a standout skill other than his hockey sense, but he does everything else at a fine level which in the big picture makes for a very good defenseman.

The Norris Trophy Is Now A Sham

Nice shirt Karlsson, you fruit. The NHL "awarded" Erik Karlsson with the Norris Trophy last night and proved to the world that the trophy, much like the people who vote on said trophy, is nothing more than a joke. Now, I know I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for that statement, but I completely stand by it. Erik Karlsson is not a Norris Trophy worthy candidate...
