Local school: Ferris.
Draft status: Vancouver Canucks (lst round, 10th pick, ‘97)
Quick check: Rugged player, willing fighter, Ference made some good decisions in last year’s playoffs to even out his proven toughness. Wants to take his game to a higher level. (Read that to mean he may not be the wild man he was last year).
Coach’s comment: “A dominant player despite his age and experience.”
