In Case You Forgot, Ference Is Still On The Oilers. He’s Also Out For The Year
#Oilers defenceman Andrew Ference will undergo hip surgery and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

I think we can assume Ference has played his last game
as an Oiler in the NHL, as his contract will almost surely be bought out in the summer. His last NHL game will have been against the Detroit Red Wings on November 27th. He played 4:24. Still went -2. If I could describe his nauseating two and a bit years with the Oilers in one word, it would be abhorrent. Nice guy. Stunk bad on the skates.
Ference incredibly played six games this year. He didn’t get a point, but he did put one right on the tape against Nashville in the second game of the year.
Nashville’s tape. But my favourite highlight during his reign as an Oiler is without a doubt when he buried one with authority right into the back of our net.
So long, Andrew.
