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. Jan 16 - 9:57 PM

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.

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.

Mark Fraser will likely sit out another game Saturday night against Washington.

Mark Fraser (lower body) skated prior to Monday's practice and briefly during the session.

He suffered a lower-body injury Saturday against Buffalo and he finished with just 3:54 of ice time. If he isn't available for Tuesday's game, and it doesn't look like he will be, then rookie Morgan Rielly will get back into the lineup.

Mark Fraser returned to action against New Jersey Friday night.

It was his first game action since October 2nd due to a knee injury. He had four hits and two blocked shots against the Devils and partnered with Paul Ranger. Although he has no offensive ability to speak of, Fraser is valuable in pools that count penalty minutes as a positive stat.

Mark Fraser (knee) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

Mark Fraser (knee) feels healthy enough to return to Toronto's lineup.

Whether or not Fraser actually plays on Friday is another story. He has no points and 16 penalty minutes in two games this season.

Mark Fraser (knee) may be able to play this coming Friday night.

The Maple Leafs play Saturday night against Vancouver and then don't play again until Friday against New Jersey. There is a real chance that Fraser could be back in the lineup for that contest. He will have to wear a knee brace, though. That shouldn't affect his game and he is sure to be a solid penalty minute contributor.
