Fraser will make just $175K while down on the farm. The 29-year-old veteran forward saw just 23 games of action with Edmonton two seasons ago, and played in only 34 games last season with New Jersey. He does not offer any fantasy value, however

Mark Fraser will make $800,000 if he plays in the NHL this season.

Mark Fraser has signed a two-way contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The deal was reached shortly after the Maple Leafs announced that Fraser had been released from his professional tryout. The Ottawa native played in 34 games with the New Jersey Devils last season. Fraser earned four assists, 55 penalty minutes and 85 hits in 2014-15, but it's likely he'll start the upcoming campaign in the minors.

Mark Fraser will take part in the Toronto Maple Leafs' training camp on a tryout basis.

Toronto has also offered PTOs to Brad Boyes, Curtis Glencross, and Devin Setoguchi.

Fraser had four assists and 55 penalty minutes in 34 games with the New Jersey Devils last season.

Mark Fraser will pair with Peter Harrold as the Devils take on the Ducks in Anaheim on Friday night.

While neither defender would normally be recommended, it's worth noting that Fraser has 20 PIMs in just five NHL games so far this season. If he sees consistent playing time, he won't be able to keep up that pace, but it's reasonable to expect he'll be worth plugging in as a depth defender in deeper pools.

Mark Fraser picked up his third fighting major in four games on Friday.

Fraser was recalled a week ago by the Devils after Eric Gelinas and Peter Harrold were unable to go and he is literally fighting to keep a job in the NHL. He also has an assist and is plus-two in the four games since his recall so he has been an asset of late in pools.

The New Jersey Devils will recall defenseman Mark Fraser this afternoon.

This is according to GM Lou Lamiorello as Peter Harrold will not play and Eric Gelinas is questionable with flu-like symptoms, leaving the Devils with only five healthy rearguards at this time. Fraser has no fantasy value.
