Bruins Sign Andrew Ference to Three-Year Extension
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed defenseman Andrew Ference to a three-year contract extension through the 2013-14 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

The 31-year-old Ference is a veteran of 569 regular season NHL games and has compiled 24 goals, 117 assists and 141 points in his 10 NHL seasons. This season marked Ference's fourth with the Bruins, as he was traded from Calgary to Boston with Chuck Kobasew for Brad Stuart, Wayne Primeau, and a 2008 fourth round pick on February 10, 2007. He has appeared in 50 games this year for the Black & Gold and has tallied eight assists. In his three plus years with the Bruins, Ference has played in 182 games and registered 3-29-32 totals and 137 PIM.

Ference enjoyed his best seasons offensively with the Flames, including a career high of 27 assists and 31 points in 2005-06 while also matching his season high in goals with four that year. Despite playing in a career low 47 games last year with Boston, he still matched the second best offensive year of his career with 15 assists and 16 points in that campaign.

He was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the eighth round (208th overall) of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. He played four-plus seasons in the Penguins organization at both the NHL and minor league levels before being sent to Calgary for a 2004 third round draft pick on February 10, 2003.

An avid environmentalist, Ference is one of the most active Bruins in the community as he has been involved in a number of charitable causes in the Greater Boston area and worldwide. He spearheaded the NHLPA's Carbon Neutral Challenge, whereby players offset the carbon emissions through their hockey related travel with Gold Standard Credits which put money back into renewable energy projects, donated half of his 2009 playoff bonus to the New England Grassroots Environmental Fund, served as a spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority encouraging the use of public transportation, spoke about environmental issues at Canada's New Democratic Party's National Convention this past August and acts as an athlete ambassador for the Right To Play organization.
