RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ferland ended up seeing a large amount of ice time as a rookie for Calgary last season, tallying five points in 26 regular-season games and five points in nine playoff contests. He raised his performance in the playoffs despite dealing with a torn oblique, which likely had to impress his coaches and put him on the inside track to break camp with the big club in 2015-16. The Flames have a glut of talent on the offensive end, but Ferland solidly inserted himself into that discussion with his play last season.
Ferland had a solid season in the AHL last year before hurting his knee and he finished with 18 points in 25 games. The aggravated assault charge from mid-2013 is still haunting him, as he makes as many headlines off the ice as on it, but there's no question he has talent. He should start 2014-15 in the AHL. Watch and wait on him to make sure he can both clean up his act and grow his game.
Ferland spend 2011-12 in the WHL and will begin 2012-13 in the AHL. He scored quite a bit in the WHL and it remains to be seen what he can do in the AHL.
