    Oilers' Mark Fayne: Listed on Oilers roster

    Fayne is currently on the Oilers roster, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports. Fayne was reportedly added to the roster when Rob Klinkhammer was placed on injured reserve, but he's yet to draw into the lineup. He'll continue to provide depth along the blue line, but his run with the team could come to an end when one of the currently injured players rejoins the lineup.

    Oilers' Mark Fayne: Clears waivers, assigned to AHL

    Fayne has been assigned to the Condors of the AHL after clearing waivers Thursday. Fayne had signed a four-year, $14.5 million contract with the Oilers in July of 2014, which would have equated to a $3.625 million cap hit this season. However, by placing Fayne on waivers and assigning him to the minors, the Oilers have effectively buried a large portion of his contract, while freeing up more cap space to promote Nikita Nikitin from the minors.

    Oilers' Mark Fayne: Placed on waivers Wednesday

    Fayne was placed on waivers with the intention of assignment to the AHL on Wednesday. The 28-year old defenseman earned himself a four-year, $14.5 million contract with the Oilers prior to the 2014-15 season, but hasn't met the expectations that came along with the deal. Averaging just over 16 minutes per game, Fayne recorded an assist and a minus-8 rating in 24 games this season. Barring major injuries on the Edmonton blueline or a trade, expect Fayne to play out the last two years of his contract in the minors.
