Ference skated in his final game with them on Sunday and thanked the fans for “one of my most memorable nights of hockey.”
He had two goals and seven points during his tenure with the squad.
It remains to be seen what Ference will do next, but obviously so much of it depends on what happens over the next few weeks with the NHL negotiations. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly suggested that the season will be canceled if there’s no new CBA by mid-January.
