Fayne (undisclosed) was placed on waivers Monday.

Per NHL rules, in order to be waived, Fayne must have been cleared from whatever ailment saw him placed on injured reserve. Given the emergence of other players on the blue line, it shouldn't be overly surprising that the Oilers waived the 29-year-old. Assuming he goes unclaimed, the defenseman will likely be reassigned to the minors.
