Cody Bass (born January 7, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL). He plays the forward position, and possesses the versatility to play either centre or wing.
Bass grew up in Guelph, Ontario playing much of his minor hockey with the Guelph Jr. Storm of the OMHA's South Central AAA League. After his Bantam season, Bass played for the Guelph Dominators Jr.B. team of the OHA in the 2002-03 season and was the 1st round choice (5th overall) selection of the OHL's Mississauga Ice Dogs in 2003.
Prior to joining the Senators organization, Bass played major junior with the Saginaw Spirit and Mississauga IceDogs of the OHL. In 247 career OHL games, Bass tallied 124 points (40 goals and 84 assists) and collected 371 PIM.
Bass has also represented Canada internationally, winning a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2004 U-18 Junior World Cup. He also played on Canada's U-18 silver medal team at the 2005 U-18 Junior World Cup in Břeclav, Czech Republic.
Bass was eligible to be drafted in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft which was held in Ottawa. Though he was ranked in the third round, he was still available early in the 4th round and was chosen 95th overall by the hometown Ottawa Senators. The Senators had earlier acquired the selection from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Todd White.
Bass played his first game in the NHL with Ottawa against the Atlanta Thrashers on December 15, 2007, and scored his first NHL goal against the Buffalo Sabres on January 4, 2008. Because he was not on the Binghamton Senators official "clear day" roster, he was ineligible to return to the AHL during the 2007–08 season and remained on the roster of the Ottawa Senators. He played in the Stanley Cup playoffs in a first round series against the against Pittsburgh Penguins. In Ottawa's 2008–09 training camp, he was one of the team's final cuts, and was assigned to Binghamton on October 7, 2008. He was recalled to Ottawa on November 19, 2008, only to sustain a season-ending injury shortly thereafter.
Bass would spend the entire 2009–10 season in Binghamtom, registering 11 points in 57 games.
