With the addition of Cody Ceci, Owen Sound Attack GM Dale DeGray just enlivened one of the OHL's big city-small city rivalry.
The London Knights are running away with the league lead and might have liked Ceci, the best available defenceman who comes without NHL call-up strings attached, running their power play. However, DeGray and the Attack, representing the OHL's tiniest market, have landed the Ottawa Senators first-rounder in a reported four-player trade. In other words, Owen Sound, which holds the third seed in the Western Conference but is 18 points back of London, believes it could take dead aim on the Knights come playoff time.
