News: Ference picked up an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over the Canadiens.
Impact: It marked the first point in 11 games for Ference, who had also failed to post a positive plus/minus rating in any of those contests. Ference contributes useful totals in the hits and blocks categories, but his lack of scoring to go along a minus-12 rating on the season make him toxic for fantasy purposes.

News: Ference tallied a goal in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Flames.
Impact: Any offense the Oilers get out of Ference is gravy, as he was inked to a four-year, $13 million contract in the summer of 2013 to serve as the team's shutdown defender. It's a role he's proven ill-equipped to fill so far during his tenure with Edmonton, which has noticed limited progress in tidying up the play in front of its netminders.
