Andrew Ference Says He Won’t Be Back With Bruins

Andrew Ference said on Wednesday that he will be playing in 2013-14, but that it won’t be with the Boston Bruins.

“With the current cap, Peter [Chiarelli] is not going to be able to keep me,” Ference said, referring to the Bruins’ general manager. “He’s got to resign Tuukka [Rask] and obviously do his side of the business.

“With the new CBA he is restricted. I wish it wasn’t so.”

Ference has been with the Bruins since they acquired him in a trade with the Calgary Flames during the 2006-07 season and has become a staple on their blue line, winning a Stanley Cup with the team during the 2010-11 season. In 48 games this season he scored four goals to go with nine assists.
