According to TSN Hockey reporter Ryan Rishaug, the Edmonton Oilers will meet with unrestricted free-agent defenceman Mark Fayne on Thursday.

Rishaug also mentions that six or seven other teams are interested in the shut-down defenceman and likely wants a four to five year deal. As of right now, the Toronto Maple Leafs are not among the teams set to meet with the Fayne camp.

The 27-year-old is coming off a two-year contract that had an average annual value of $1.3 million.

Fayne scored four goals and added seven assists with a minus-five rating in 72 games with the New Jersey Devils in 2013-2014. In 242 career games with the Devils, Fayne has 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points.

The American was selected by the Devils in the fifth round (155th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Sources say the Oilers have also reached out to defenceman Deryk Engelland's camp, and will likely have further discussions.
