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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
