College career

After graduating from Riverview Rural High School in 1988, Ferguson played four years of college hockey for the Yale University Bulldogs of the ECAC. At Yale, Ferguson lived at Calhoun College. Ferguson was one of the twelve players named to the 1988-1989 ECAC Hockey All-Rookie team.[1]. Ferguson returned to New Haven in 1997-1998 as a member of the Beast of New Haven. During the season, he became the first professional hockey player ever invited to speak at a Master's Tea at Calhoun College; past speakers had included James Earl Jones and Paul Newman.[2] Ferguson graduated from Yale with a BA in economics and political science.[3]

Professional career

He was drafted in 1989 and turned pro in 1992. He spent much of his career bouncing around the minor leagues, but appeared in 27 National Hockey League games for the Canadiens, Calgary Flames and Florida Panthers. Ferguson recorded one goal (it was against the Toronto Maple Leafs during Mario Tremblay's first game as coach) and one assist in his NHL career. In 2000, he moved to Europe where he played three seasons for Fribourg-Gottéron in the Swiss Nationalliga A, and then three more with ERC Ingolstadt of the German Deutsche Eishockey Liga.
