The New Jersey Devils avoided arbitration with defensemen Mark Fraser, as they signed the restricted free agent to a one-year contract Wednesday. According to The (Bergen) Record, the one-way contract will pay Fraser $500,000.

Fraser, 23, had 3 goals, 3 assists and 36 penalty minutes in 61 games for the Devils last season. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Ottawa native also appeared in one postseason contest and was held scoreless.

Selected in the third round (No. 84) by New Jersey in the 2005 Entry Draft, Fraser is 3-3-6 with 43 penalty minutes in 68 NHL games.
Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays.
