Mark Fayne Signs 2-year Deal With Devils, Avoids Arbitration

Posted By Mike Mastrandrea On Jul 20 2012 @ 9:07 pm In New Jersey Devils | No Comments

Defenseman Mark Fayne signed a 2-year deal worth $2.6 million late Friday evening, reported first by Katie Strang of ESPN. Fayne was a restricted free agent and was scheduled to have his arbitration hearing on August 2nd after he rejected his initial offer.

The 2-year deal for the 25-year old defenseman consists of $1.2 million in 2012 and $1.4 million in 2013.

Fayne was rock-solid during the regular season as he played in all 82 games. He didn’t produce many points, but provided a nice defensive presence during the season and throughout New Jerseys’ run to the Stanley Cup finals. With this, New Jersey retains its entire defensive corps from the previous season, a good sign for the Devils defense and its new assistant coach Scott Stevens.
