Or go all in for Duchene. Still love that guy and we don't have a game breaking forward.
Ceci has had several games where he's had more five-on-five ice time than Karlsson. Last night he had the most ice time (total ice time) of all skaters for both teams. Doesn't sound like someone being groomed for the third pairing. Could be he's being showcased, or they just want to keep Karlsson fresher for the powerplays and the post-season. Regardless, you won't see him on the third pairing next year.
