Fayne was placed on waivers Sunday, with Edmonton intending to reassign him to AHL Bakersfield should he go unclaimed.

EDGE Analysis

Having spent nearly the entirety of 2016-17 in the minors, Fayne's fight to make Edmonton's Opening Night roster made it to October, but his $3.625 million cap hit ultimately proved to be too large of an obstacle to overcome. Fayne is a solid, stay-at-home defender, but doesn't fit Edmonton's system and is unlikely to see NHL ice until his current deal expires upon the conclusion of the 2017-18 campaign.

Fayne (undisclosed) has been activated from injured reserve and assigned to AHL Bakersfield.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a long, injury-plagued season for Fayne, who has managed to see the ice on only four occasions this season, two of which were cut short by assorted ailments. The New Hampshire native is presumably going to the minors for conditioning, but there's really no telling when he will be recalled.

Fayne (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We feel for Fayne, as he missed 21 games with an undisclosed ailment before finally returning Saturday. It's unclear if this is a related setback, but at any rate, the Oilers have recalled David Musil as a reinforcement on the blue line.

Fayne exited Tuesday's game against the Sabres with an undisclosed injury and will not return, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when or how Fayne sustained the ailment but given he won't return to the road contest, his availability for the Oilers' next matchup with the Flyers on Thursday is questionable. The 29-year-old blueliner has never produced more than 20 points in an NHL season so even when healthy, he's not the best option in fantasy formats.

Fayne was recalled from AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fayne gets the call with fellow defenseman Eric Gryba going on injured reserve with an undisclosed ailment. The former had been waived only two days ago, but stayed within the Oilers organization upon clearing. Fayne has failed to clear the 20-point mark in six NHL campaigns the Devils, and he's skated to a minus-19 rating over his career, so you can safely pass over him in the majority of fantasy formats.

Fayne (undisclosed) was placed on waivers Monday.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Fayne (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

In a corresponding move, the Oilers promoted Ben Betker from AHL Bakersfield. Even when healthy, Fayne is more of a shutdown type, and not someone who will turn heads in the fantasy realm.

Fayne left Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes with an undisclosed injury and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what the severity of the ailment is at this point but given he's headed to the locker room for the rest of the game, it could be something more than day-to-day. The Oilers will likely have a status report on the blueliners health in the coming days.

Fayne had two goals and five assists in 69 games for Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Fayne is miscast as a top four defender as he offers very little in terms of offensive potential or toughness. His roster spot could be in jeopardy next season if the Oilers are able to upgrade their defensive corps over the summer.

Fayne is currently being paired with Andrej Sekera as the Oilers top unit on defense.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Todd McLellan has been juggling both offensive and defensive lines trying to shake the team out of its slump. Fayne only has nine goals over the past four seasons and zero on the power play so don't let this move fool you, he is still very likely not fantasy worthy unless you're playing in the deepest of deep leagues.
