The native of Ottawa was in the minors playing for the Anaheim Ducks organization when he was acquired
him in February for minor-league winger Dale Mitchell; Fraser was a part of the Marlies' run to the AHL Calder Cup final and recorded three assists in 17 games during the playoffs and 2 assists in 20 regular-season games with the club.
The 6'4, 220 pound Fraser was drafted
in round 3 of the 2005 NHL entry draft, 84th overall, by the New Jersey Devils. He's played 98 regular season games in the NHL, all with the Devils, and has 3 goals and 5 assists.
Toronto has been unable to land via trade or a free-agent signing an bona-fide impact player this summer, missing out on Rick Nash, Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin. Instead they've added Jay McClement and Keith Aucoin and, in a trade for Luke Schenn, picked up winger James van Riemsdyk from Philadelphia. While rumors about acquiring a goalie, such as the L.A. King's Jonathan Bernier or Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks, have died down, Burke continues to say he is not finished making moves.
