    Good for him. Definitely didn’t have the season he was hoping for in terms of individual or team success but he’s a great guy both on and off the ice.

    Curious that you didn’t mention Ference’s recent participation in the Pride parade in Edmonton. Certainly relevant to him winning this award and not the most popular position to take among tuff-guy pro athletes.
