Ference to have hip surgery, out for remainder of season


The Edmonton Oilers announced this morning that defenseman Andrew Ference will undergo hip surgery and be sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Ference has only appeared in six games in 2015-16. He’s been on injured reserve for the majority of the time with what the Oilers called a “nagging hip injury.”

The 36-year-old is signed through next season for a cap hit of $3.25 million.
