As teams across the NHL host development camps for their young prospects, the Edmonton Oilers have allowed Andrew Ference the opportunity to put his own unique spin on the festivities.

The Oilers captain, along with US Army Ranger Lucas Carr, will lead prospects on a survival trek on Sunday night.

"I wanted to do something different and take these guys on an adventure," Ference said. "It won't be comfortable, but it's just one night."

Judging by their reaction, the youngsters will indeed be venturing far outside their comfort zones.
