The New Jersey Devils have reportedly re-signed defenseman Mark Fraser to a one-year contract.

According to CBC Sports, the deal is worth $550,000. Fraser, who earned $500,000 in 2010-11, was scheduled to go to an arbitration hearing on Aug. 4.

The 24-year-old Fraser played in 26 games last season, producing 2 assists and 29 penalty minutes. He suffered a broken hand in the first half of the season and was a healthy scratch down the stretch under head coach Jacques Lemaire.

New Devils coach Peter DeBoer has some history with Fraser, as he coached him for two seasons (2004-05, 2005-06) in the Ontario Hockey League with the Kitchener Rangers. Fraser has 3 goals and 8 points in 94 career NHL games. He had a career high 3 goals and 6 points in 61 appearances with the Devils in 2009-10.
Quote of the Day

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
