Although Andrew Ference hasn't officially retired, it certainly sounds like he's moved on because of his hip injury.
"What is the terminology? I have a career-ending injury," said Ference. "That’s the way I’m looking at it. I got 16 years. I don’t feel I missed out. The people close to me walk on egg-shells until I tell them it’s OK. I told my wife it’s like graduating from high school. You go to high school, have a blast, have all these great parties but by the time you get to the end of high school, you say, ‘All right, I’m ready for the next step.’ You have fond memories. If I hadn’t won a Stanley Cup (2011 in Boston), that would be tough to swallow now." With one season left on his contract, it's expected that Ference will be placed on the long-term injured reserve list by the Edmonton Oilers. If this is the end of his career, he'll finish with 43 goals and 225 points in 907 career games. As he noted he won the Stanley Cup in 2011 with Boston and also participated in the Stanley Cup Final in 2004 when his Calgary Flames fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Sep 16 - 10:58 PM
