    Oilers' Andrew Ference: Placed on injured reserve Saturday

    Ference (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. It isn't clear what kind of injury Ference is dealing with, but it's not as if the 36-year-old blueliner's presence on the Oilers' roster will be missed, as he's only suited up for six of Edmonton's 27 games this season, logging an average of 13:04 of ice time in those tilts. The former eighth-round pick can be considered as out indefinitely.

  • Oilers' Ference On Track To Sit Wednesday

    News: Andrew Ference (upper body) is unlikely to play Wednesday against the Avalanche, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
    Analysis: Andrew Ference missed Tuesday's practice after suffering an upper-body injury in Monday's loss to the Jets. Coach Todd Nelson didn't seem confident that Ference would notice enough recovery in the next several hours to be an option for Wednesday's game, and with the Oilers once again out of playoff contention, there's no real incentive for the team to play the blueliner at less than 100 percent. The team will wait and see if Ference can get closer to full health in advance of Friday's game against the Stars.
