January 2014 – Ferland’s sophomore pro season is likely over already. After starting with 11 games of nothing, he went on a tear with 18 points in 13 games. But his season came to an abrupt end with knee surgery. All this limited taste has done is make us question what we can expect from him. He projects as a good, lower line, energy player, but how close is he really? He will obviously now need to come back from a serious knee problem, and we can hope it doesn’t hold back his game for the future. Had his pace continued, he would likely have been skating with the big club before long, but now he will need to reprove himself through training camp next season to get a shot, unfortunately for him with much more talented competition coming. Jason Banks


January 2013 – Struggled to turn pro this season in limited action with the Heat and showed little life in games outside a late game misconduct penalty in a 5-0 loss to the Toronto Marlies mid-November. He has recently been reassigned to his junior team in Brandon.  Jason Banks

March 2012 – After an average post-draft season, Michael Ferland has taken his game to new heights. He was in contention for a spot on Canada’s World Junior team and has proven to be one of the WHL’s most lethal scorers. In 68 games he put up 47 goals and 49 assists, for 96 total points. He was also honored by being named a WHL Second Team Allstar. He is a big strong winger that knows how to get the puck into the net. He also has the frame and physicality to make a difference defensively. Ferland should be a lock to play in the AHL next year. Zenon Hersymiuk


Fantasy Outlook: C


Some offensive upside. Mainly projects to be a third-line role player.




Nice shootout goal by Ferland:
