Mark Fayne tickled the twine in the Oilers’ 2-1 shootout win against the Flames on Saturday night.
Fayne’s goal at 10:37 of the third period tied it up. It was his first goal in almost a year (Feb. 14, 2015), and just his second point in 33 games this season. Suffice to say, he’s not on fantasy radars. Taylor Hall got the helper. Jan 17 - 1:10 AM

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled Mark Fayne from AHL Bakersfield.

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.

Mark Fayne and Ryan Hamilton were scratched from Sunday's match with Buffalo.

Mark Fayne will pair with Oscar Klefbom on Sunday against Chicago.

This will be a great test for both the veteran defensive blue liner Fayne, and the young stud Klefbom who's already shown his offensive talents. However, Fayne has never collected the traditional counting stats so this won't inspire you to pick him up.

It appears as though Mark Fayne will be a healthy scratch for the Edmonton Oilers against the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

That's a lot of dough in the press box. He doesn't provide much fantasy value, but it's a bit surprising that he cannot make the top six. That said, Edmonton is improving, so Fayne needs to keep up.

Mark Fayne (shoulder) skated on Saturday but was unable to play.

Fayne was injured on March 24 and while he is close to returning, the Oilers decided to keep him out one more game. Fayne has only two goals and six points in 74 games and his other stats in traditional pools are nothing to write home about as he is minus-21 with only 14 penalty minutes.

Mark Fayne leads the Edmonton Oilers with 71 blocked shots.

Fayne is playing in his first season with Edmonton after inking a four-year, $14.5 million contract. His willingness to get in front of shots has been valuable as no other Oilers' player has been doing so with any regularly. After Fayne, the next highest Edmonton player is Justin Schultz with 49 blocks in 34 contests.

Mark Fayne played against the New Jersey Devils for the first time since leaving over the summer as a UFA.

Fayne said that it was the first time he had ever played against ex-teammates as he has played for the Devils his entire NHL career and it's not like you can be dealt from a college team. He has been a force on the Oilers blueline this season, providing the team with some veteran leadership. "He quietly goes about his business and he doesn't make a lot of mistakes," coach Dallas Eakins said. "We desperately needed a guy like that on our back end who can just eat up minutes and play against the other team’s top two lines. He takes on some big heavy responsibilities and takes on those minutes very well. The other thing he’s brought, is his leadership is incredible. He’s a guy that we really rely on in our room to hold things together."
