Mark C. Fayne (born May 15, 1987) is an American professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the 5th round (155th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Fayne was born in Nashua, New Hampshire, but grew up in Bourne, Massachusetts.
Fayne attended Providence College where he played four seasons (2006–10) of Hockey East college hockey. Before Providence College, he played hockey for the prestigious Noble and Greenough School under the coaching of Brian Day along with classmates Mike Griffin, Chris Huxley, and Matt Rhone.
Turning professional for the 2010–11 season, Fayne had played only 16 games for the Devils' AHL affiliate Albany Devils before receiving an emergency call-up to the NHL on November 22, 2010. He scored his first NHL goal in his 10th game on December 15, 2010 against Ilya Bryzgalov of the Phoenix Coyotes.
On July 20, 2012, Fayne signed a two-year deal worth $2.6 million in order to remain with the Devils. Fayne played in 31 out of the lockout shortened 48 games during the 2012-13 New Jersey Devils season, largely due to injuries (including wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament just prior to the season, and a season ending "bulging disc" in his lower back). He played in 71 games during the 2013-14 New Jersey Devils season.
