Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) There are not a lot of new faces for fans to get used to on this year's B-Sens squad, but you could technically describe some of them as newer names to this year's line-up.

On of them is Ottawa's 2012 first-round pick Cody Ceci. The defenseman scored a goal and an assist while playing in six games for Binghamton at the end of last season.

However, this year he makes the full-time jump to the AHL from the Ontario Hockey League. He said the biggest difference will be living on his own, and said he's ready for the pressure of being part of the future of the organization.

"A little bit, but it's good pressure and it's just going to push me harder," said Ceci. "And just make me want to make the jump as fast as I can, and it'll push me to do so. I'm just going to work as hard as I can, and when I'm ready I'm sure they'll like to add me to the line-up."

Coach Luke Richardson said Ceci will likely start the year paired up with captain Mark Borowiecki on defense.
