When it comes to the future of the Ottawa Senators, much of the attention has been on pending unrestricted free agents Matt Duchene and Mark Stone. But the team is also reportedly getting calls about a lower-profile player.

Other NHL clubs have contacted the Senators to see if they'd consider trading defenseman Cody Ceci, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

"Unlike Stone and Duchene, he is not (a pending) unrestricted free agent. He's a (pending) restricted free agent. And yet, there are teams out there that have been calling Ottawa to see if there's any interest in moving him," McKenzie said of Ceci on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading."

"That's also a decision-making process that the Senators have to go through between now and the deadline," McKenzie added.

Ceci signed a one-year, $4.3-million deal to stay with the Senators in August.

The 25-year-old ranks second on the club in ice-time this season, averaging 22:45 per game. He has 13 points in 43 games.

Ceci is in his sixth season with Ottawa after the Senators drafted him 15th overall in 2012.
