Oilers acquire Fraser from Maple Leafs
Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Edmonton Oilers have acquired defenseman Mark Fraser from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for forward Cameron Abney and the rights to forward Teemu Hartikainen.
Fraser had one assist and 33 penalty minutes in 19 games for Toronto this season.
In parts of six seasons with the New Jersey Devils and Maple Leafs, Fraser has three goals and 14 assists to go along with 204 penalty minutes in 162 games.
"I'm happy to get to play for another organization with extremely passionate fans," Fraser told the Oilers' website. "I'm very excited. I'm confident I can provide something the Oilers may be missing. Most of my success comes from my size and aggression."
Hartikainen had one goal and two assists in 23 games with the Oilers last season. He has six goals and seven assists in 52 career games with Edmonton.
Abney has spent time with the Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL and Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL since being chosen in the third round of the 2009 draft.
