PLANNING & EVENTS

SPECIAL GUEST: ANDREW FERENCE

Andrew Ference is a Canadian former professional ice hockey defenseman. Ference started in the NHL during the 1999–00 season and played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames, Boston Bruins and the Edmonton Oilers. In 2011, Ference helped the Bruins to their sixth Stanley Cup championship.

Andrew has long been a supporter of social change initiatives to help the environment, and he is also a big supporter of promoting equality and inclusion in the sports. It comes as no surprise then that Ference became involved in a Kickstarter campaign for Pride Tape, a pro-quality hockey stick tape in rainbow colors which aims to show support for LGBTQ+ athletes.
