The New Jersey Devils have re-signed defenseman Mark Fayne, according to ESPN New York. The deal is reportedly for two years and $2.6 million in total, $1.2 million for the first year and $1.4 million for the following year. Fayne picked up four goals and 13 assists for the Devils in the 2011-2012 season, adding another three assists in the playoffs.
Fayne may not be available for the season opener, as he had surgery on a ligament in his left wrist in late June. When he does recover Devils fans should be glad to have him back; SB Nation's Devils blog In Lou We Trust said the 25-year-old "proved to be a top-four NHL defenseman over the last one and a half seasons."
