This is the first installment of my player reviews for 2009/2010. This will be a daily feature were I review a players numbers and overall contribution to the team over the past season.

After much debate, it's been decided to go in number order so without further delay, let's look at #2, defenseman Mark Fraser.

Fraser's Numbers: Mark played in 61 games this season for the Devils and had 3 goals and 3 assists and was a +3 and had 36 penalty minutes which included 4 major penalties.

My Thoughts: Fraser spent the last 3 seasons playing for Albany/Lowell so this was his first season with the big boys. Fraser started out well as he got his first NHL point/goal in the first game he appeared in which was on Oct. 24th @ Pittsburgh. He would be in an out of the lineup as the season progressed, I never really looked at Fraser as an integral part of our defense scheme. I think Lemaire looked at him the same way because Fraser only played one game in the series against the Flyers and then sat out the final 2 games of that series.

Fraser's Future: He's a young kid and probably has some decent potential. As a whole, I wasn't overly thrilled with what the Devils defense brought to the table but Fraser is a guy I would consider hanging on to. Being that he is young and has had more experience in the AHL, I do want to see how he plays with guys like Matt Corrente and Tyler Eckford, so yes, lets keep him.

BallHype: hype it up!

Mark Fraser > Mike Mottau

As many of you know, I'm a huge Mark Fraser fan. Earlier on this blog, I advocated he receive more time in a post about the AHL players. Now, I think he's ready to step up and take the place of Mike Mottau. Think about it - he only made two bad mistakes all season. Both led to goals, so they were costly, but most of the time you didn't even know he was there. Plus, he played very well against the Pens, which is always a plus.

Fraser would be a great, and cheaper, option for depth on the blue line. Give him his shot and I think he'll play well.
