Report: Fayne re-signs with Devils

Defenseman Mark Fayne reportedly has re-signed with the New Jersey Devils, avoiding arbitration.

ESPN.com says the contract is for two years, $2.6 million.

Fayne's arbitration hearing was scheduled for Aug. 2. He had surgery to repair a ligament in his left wrist in June and could be out of action until November.

The 25-year-old played all 82 regular-season games, totaling 17 points. He played in all of the Devils' 24 Stanley Cup Playoff games and had three points with a plus-5 rating.

Fayne, selected in the fifth round (No. 155) of the 2005 NHL Draft, played 57 games in his rookie season of 2010-11.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
