Although Matt Fraser was concussed on Monday as previously reported, Oilers coach Todd Nelson said he's "doing well."

Matt Fraser and Keith Aulie will be scratched on Saturday night against the St. Louis Blues.

Matt Fraser is projected to play in Monday's contest against Winnipeg.

Fraser spent Edmonton's previous three games in the press box. Rob Klinkhammer is unavailable because he left the team to be with his wife for the birth of their first child, so there's an opening for Fraser. He's expected to play on the fourth line.

Matt Fraser and Keith Aulie are expected to be scratched against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

While Fraser has amassed seven points in 17 games thus far, he has just eight points in 51 games otherwise since debuting with Dallas in 2011-12. Aulie meanwhile has played just five times since mid-December. Needless to say, neither have much fantasy value.
Feb 12 - 7:02 PM

Matt Fraser scored his sixth goal of season and added in two helpers in Thursday night's 3-2 victory Buffalo.

Fraser finished off a pretty passing sequence to tie the game at one ten minutes after Tyler Myers opened the scoring in the first. He also was a key contributor to the Oilers' other two goals for his first career three-point game. In a dozen games he now has three goals seven points.
Jan 30 - 2:08 AM

Edmonton Oilers coach Todd Nelson is familiar with Matt Fraser's work in the minors.

"He's a guy who can shoot the puck," said Nelson of Fraser. "He scored his fair share of goals against us so I've seen him up close. He's a hard working guy who can find the back of the net." That was certainly true in the AHL, but Fraser got very little playing time with the Boston Bruins and consequently hasn't had much of an impact in the NHL. The Oilers claimed him off of waivers and it will be interesting to see if Nelson gives him the opportunity to play on a scoring line.

Matt Fraser has been claimed off of waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

Fraser has three goals and no assists in 24 games with Boston this season. It's worth noting that he did excel offensively at the AHL level, but we wouldn't count on him finding his scoring touch in Edmonton. He might end up getting regular minutes as a bottom-six forward though.

The Boston Bruins waived Matt Fraser on Sunday.

Fraser isn't a fantasy difference-maker, so JFYI.

Matt Fraser was a healthy scratch Friday night.

He sat in the press box for the Bruins' 2-1 overtime win over the Jets. It appears that David Pastrnak's presence is squeezing Fraser out for now. If you have Fraser on your roster feel free to drop him.
