Mark Fayne will spend Saturday's game in the press box.

Fayne has struggled over the last two games and he recognizes that. "I think I was forcing stuff a little too much," he said. "Especially down low with the puck. I didn’t really have too much patience and, I guess, finesse to make the correct play instead of forcing things. When you have 8 D who are ready, it’s a luxury for the team. For a player you have to know that every night is a tryout. You’re playing for your spot." He'll get a chance to earn that spot back sooner or later.

Mark Fayne didn't participate in Tuesday's morning skate because of a death in his family, but he returned and played against the Carolina Hurricanes.

"Difficult circumstances," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I had a conversation with him. He felt comfortable he could handle it and, to his credit, he did." Fayne finished the contest with 19:25 of ice time, while recording two shots, two penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating.

Mark Fayne missed Saturday's contest against the Penguins with an arm injury.

The 25-year-old blueliner played in his first full 82-game season in 2011-12 after he suited up in 57 contests the year before. Fayne registered 17 points, 26 penalty minutes, 84 hits, 88 blocks and a minus-4 rating, while playing primarily with Andy Greene on the team's shutdown pairing. He has no fantasy value at this time.

Mark Fayne won't play Thursday because of a "minor" arm injury.

He participated in the morning skate and stayed on the ice afterward with the teams' scratches. Fayne said he probably could've played if he had to, but the Devils will use this opportunity to give him some rest and to play sophomore defender Adam Larsson for the first time this season. The injury occurred on Tuesday against Boston.

Mark Fayne is still projected to be OK to return from his wrist procedure in time for New Jersey's regular-season opener on Oct. 12 in Washington.

"He's coming along great," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "He couldn't play tomorrow, but he'll be ready in a couple of weeks. He's OK. It's just making sure it's 100 percent healed." Fayne probably won't get clearance for contact out of the gate if training camps start on time, but his availability when the season is supposed to begin is good news after he had a torn scapholunate ligament repaired in his left wrist back in June.

Fayne signed a two-year contract extension with the Devils on July 20, and should remain a fixture on New Jersey's blueline.
