Senators sign local defenceman Fraser to a one-year, two-way contract @NHLdotcom

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have signed defenceman Mark Fraser to a one-year, two-way contract.

The deal will carry an annual value of $800,000 in the National Hockey League and $125,000 in the American Hockey League.

Fraser, 28, spent time with both the New Jersey Devils and the AHL's Albany Devils last season, recording four assists and 55 penalty minutes over 34 games with New Jersey. The Ottawa native registered three points (one goal) and 45 penalty minutes in 18 games with Albany.

Fraser will add depth to the blue line after the Senators suspended young defenceman Mikael Wikstrand for leaving training camp and returning to Sweden.

Originally drafted by New Jersey with their third-round pick (84th overall) in the 2005 NHL Draft, Fraser has played in 219 career NHL games with the Devils, Toronto Maple Leafs and Edmonton Oilers.

Fraser appeared in two pre-season games with Toronto on a professional tryout before being cut.
