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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
