WILMINGTON — Andrew Ference, missing for the last five games because of a lower-body injury, is skating at Ristuccia Arena prior to this afternoon’s practice. Ference is currently taking slow laps under the watch of strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides.
Today is either the first or second day Ference has skated on his own since the Feb. 26 injury.
UPDATE: Ference has concluded his skate. The session lasted for approximately 15 minutes. Ference did not perform any hard starts or stops. Ference is highly unlikely to be available for tomorrow’s game against Buffalo.
