Ferras began his professional playing career in 1988, signing as a free agent with the Adirondack Red Wings of the American Hockey League (AHL). He went on to play 12 seasons of professional hockey in the North American minor leagues and Europe. An eye injury, while playing with the New Mexico Scorpions of the Western Professional Hockey League during the 1999–2000 season, ended his playing career, and Ferras began his coaching career as an assistant with the Scorpions.
In 2007, Ferras was selected to be the inaugural head coach for the CHL expansion franchise, the Rapid City Rush, and in September 2013, following the resignation of the Rush's general manager Tim Hill, he assumed the dual role of head coach and general manager for the team. On February 18, 2016, he stepped down as head coach of the Rush but retained his position as general manager.
