The Oilers have placed Mark Fayne (undisclosed) on injured reserve.
Fayne played just 2:27 TOI in his season debut on Tuesday before leaving the game with an undisclosed injury. With Fayne on IR that opened up a roster spot for the Oilers to recalled Ben Betker from Bakersfield (AHL).
Fayne was recalled from Bakersfield (AHL) on Sunday.
Fayne struggled with the Oilers earlier in the year, so he was sent down to Bakersfield, where he collected one assist in five games. He will be back in the Oilers’ lineup on Monday, paired with Andrej Sekera. He has just one assist in 24 games with Edmonton.
The Oilers have signed Mark Fayne to a four-year, $14 million dollar deal.
Fayne, 27, had 11 points in 72 games with the Devils last season. He heads to Edmonton where he will be one of the older players on what is a very young and inexperienced blueline. He plays a solid defensive game but is not fantasy relevant.
