Fayne out 3-4 months following wrist surgery
New Jersey Devils defenseman Mark Fayne could miss the start of the 2012-13 season after undergoing wrist surgery last Friday.

New Jersey Devils defenseman Mark Fayne could miss the start of the 2012-13 season after undergoing wrist surgery last Friday.

Fayne had the scapholunate ligament of his left wrist repaired, a procedure that is expected to sideline him for 3-4 months.

Fayne, one of three players the Devils tendered qualifying offers to Monday, had four goals and 17 points while playing all 82 regular-season games in his second NHL season. He added three assists in 24 playoff games.

The Devils also tendered qualifying offers to defenseman Matt Corrente and forward Vladimir Zharkov.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
