Ferland makes it two seasons in-a-row in Belfast after arriving from the Vienna Capitals where he captained the Austrian Hockey League side to the national championship in 2016/17.

The Canadian then transferred to the Austrian Hockey League for the first of his nine straight seasons there. Ferland’s Austrian Hockey League totals are 147 goals and 188 assists, good for 335 points in 401 games.
