In the summer of 2001 I met Andrew Ference for the first time. I was working with John Short and Ference had agreed to come down to Northlands and be a guest on Short's show. Ference walked up to our table dressed completely in leather. He'd just turned 22 and finished his 2nd season of pro hockey. He started the season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL, but he finished the year playing 36 games with the Penguins and another 18 in the playoffs.
Life was good for the hockey player who loved riding his Harley.

Aidan Muir didn't come from nowhere but you can see it from there. The final North American Central Scouting List saw him rocket to #108 after not making the initial and mid-term list. Who is this guy?

Earlier today, the St. Louis Blues signed forward Derek Roy to a 1-year, $4M contract. The deal--and the rfa's still on the Blues list of 'things to do' might mean a solid scoring winger shakes loose from the very deep St. Louis depth chart.

The Oilers pulled off a minor trade on Saturday morning, sending pending free agent college defenceman Kyle Bigos (an overage draft pick in 2009) to San Jose in exchange for pending free agent college defenceman Lee Moffie (an overage draft pick in 2010).
The “minor” in the sentence above is brought to the reader by the Redundancy Department of Redundancy.
