Today we examine the #12 ranked player from REVS 2012 Prospects List . Each player is unique in their own right and full of talent. The ranking does not reflect a mock draft of who a team may actually pick but rather who I would place as the best player available in that spot.
Cody Ceci
Pos: D
HT:6'2 ft
Born: Orleans Onatraio, Canada

2009/10  Games 64 G 4 A 8    PTS 12
2010/11  Games 68 G 9 A 25  PTS 34
2011/12  Games 33 G 7 A 26  PTS 33

Cody was just returned back to the OHL after failing to make the team for the World Jr tourney for Canada. While disapointed in his own right. (I think he was more deserving then Oleksiak) Cody did also attend their summer development camp as well as the Research and Development camp this summer. No small feat either way.

Coming into this season his numbers offensively were respectable but he has done nothing but rise to the occasion and in half the  number of games he has matched his his last season totals. Cody may not have made the Canadian team for the tourney but he should enjoy the time off over the holiday season cause his team looks poised for a good run for the OHL championship with about 4 other teams.

Cody is more of a two-way defenseman, but more then likely if he is too make it in the NHL he will be looked upon to think defence first, and chip in offensively when his own end is taken care of. His attention to detail in his own zone , is one of his top qualities, but he also has a great first pass to initiate the rush. Ceci already has respectable size, but is a good skater, and has great vision.
