The 6-foot-1, 190-pound forward posted two assists and 30 penalty minutes in 33 regular season games with the Kings while recording six points (three goals, three assists) and four penalty minutes in 10 regular season games with the Monarchs.
Overall, the Sicamous, BC native has accumulated 58 points (20 goals, 38 assists) and 290 penalty minutes in 358 career NHL regular season games, including stints with Los Angeles, Edmonton and Chicago.
In addition, Fraser has tallied four points (one goal, three assists) and 16 penalty minutes in 39 career postseason games. He is a three-time Stanley Cup champion, winning with Chicago in 2010 and Los Angeles in 2012 and 2014.
