Ferrara said: “It was a great evening and hopefully one that will live long in the memory for those who took part or watched.

“I’m very grateful for all my family, friends and fans who came out to support me and see some great players take to the ice.

“For me it was a night to remember and be very proud about. It was a pleasure to be out there with so many guys who I’ve either played with or been coached by.

“I’m humbled by their efforts and I must thank everyone who has helped to make my testimonial possible.”
