Mark Alexander Fraser (born September 29, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing with the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing career

Fraser played junior hockey with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League from 2004–06. In his second season with the Rangers, his hard working style earned him the captaincy after Mike Richards left the team. He was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the third round, 84th overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. At the end of the 2005–06 season, he played his first professional games, joining the AHL Albany River Rats for four games. He played his first full professional season in 2006–07 with the Lowell Devils, and he played seven games for the New Jersey Devils as well. He remained with Lowell until 2009–10, when he made the New Jersey roster out of training camp.

He scored his first NHL goal on October 24, 2009, against Marc-Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On December 12, 2011, Fraser, along with Rod Pelley and a 2012 7th round draft pick, was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Kurtis Foster and Timo Pielmeier.[1] On February 27, 2012, Fraser was traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Dale Mitchell.

On July 30, 2013, Fraser and the Toronto Maple Leafs avoided salary arbitration and agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.275 million.[2] In the following 2013–14 season, Fraser was unable to match his performance from the Lockout season and on January 31, 2014, he was traded by the Leafs to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for the rights to Teemu Hartikainen and Cam Abney.[3]
