Mark Fayne has successfully cleared waivers.

Edmonton exposed Fayne because the squad wanted to send him to the minors. Another team might have taken a chance on him if it wasn't for his four-year, $14.5 million contract. He's only in the second season of that deal, so this is one signing that will likely hang over the Oilers' heads for quite some time.

Mark Fayne has been placed on waivers.

If Fayne clears waivers he'll be sent to the minors. It would be surprising to see him get claimed given that he's only in the second season of his four-year, $14.5 million deal. The 28-year-old has an assist and a minus-eight rating in 24 games in 2015-16.
