The Ottawa Senators have been hit by a tidal wave of injuries.

Defenseman Cody Ceci (upper body), and forwards Ryan Dzingel (lower body) and Alex Formenton (concussion) have been placed on injured reserve, the club announced Friday.

In a corresponding move, defenseman Christian Jaros and forward Nick Paul have been recalled from the AHL.

Ceci had been held without a point through four games but has logged the second-most minutes on the team’s inexperienced blue line.

Dzingel was thrown into a top-line role after a busy offseason and has been up for the challenge, scoring twice and adding two assists.

The 19-year-old speedy Formenton had been held without a point thus far.

The Senators are off to a 1-2-1 start to the season.
