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.

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.

Mark Fraser has been a healthy scratch for Toronto's past three games.

He has a good source of penalty minutes and he had a good plus-minus rating last year, but he hasn't played well in 2013-14. Fraser has 31 minutes in the sin bin in 18 appearances, but he he also has a minus-7 rating and his spot on the roster has been usurped by rookie blueliner Morgan Rielly.
