The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with Andrew Ference on a four year deal worth 13 million dollars.
The Oilers are a team with a lot of young talent and are looking to acquire players to essentially be stop-gaps in order for their younger guys to develop.
While Ference is 34 and a four year contract would take him to the age of 38, the contract is not a bad deal.
He was an alterante captain on the Boston Bruins, which will bring veteran leadership and championship experience.
