Andrew James Stewart Ference (born March 17, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). He has also played for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Calgary Flames.

Ference began his hockey career in the Western Hockey League (WHL) with the Portland Winter Hawks. After two full seasons with the team, he was selected 208th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. Ference played two more seasons with Portland and had a brief stint in the International Hockey League (IHL) with the Kansas City Blades before joining Pittsburgh in 1999.

After making his NHL debut on October 1, 1999, in a game against the Dallas Stars, Ference scored his first NHL goal a month later against the Nashville Predators on November 13, 1999. He split his rookie season between Pittsburgh and their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, finishing with 6 points (2 goals, 4 assists) in 30 NHL games and 28 points (8 goals, 20 assists) in 44 AHL games.
