Defenseman Mark Ferner was an NHL farmhand for six years in the 1980s and '90s. He played 50 of his 91 career games with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 1993-94. Ferner's strong suit was taking the body and making crisp outlet passes to his forwards.

The native of Regina, Saskatchewan, played three years with the Kamloops Junior Oilers/Blazers from 1982 to 1985. He was selected 202nd overall by the Buffalo Sabres after his first year of junior in 1983. Ferner scored 54 points his last year with Kamloops before turning in a solid season with the AHL's Rochester Americans in 1985-86. Apart from a 13-game recall in 1986-87, Ferner played 186 games in the minors during his first three pro seasons.

Prior to the 1989-90 season, Ferner was shipped to the Washington Capitals. He played only nine games for the Caps but was a solid defender and playmaker on the Baltimore Skipjacks of the AHL. He was part of the minor league systems of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators before his selection by Anaheim in the 1993 expansion draft.

Ferner scored eight points in 50 games and fit in well with the defensive scheme used by the Ducks in their first year. He spent most of the lockout-shortened season with the San Diego Gulls of the IHL then was picked up by the Detroit Red Wings as insurance on the blueline. After playing two years in the IHL, Ferner joined the Kassel Huskies of the German league briefly before returning to the "I" with the Long Beach Ice Dogs. He split the 2000-01 season between the Houston Aeros of the IHL and the Schwenningen Wild Wings of Germany.
