Foligno won't get to suit up against his father's former team. He has three goals and nine points in 29 games so far this season with the Wild, but has recorded no points in his last six games. He will sit in the press box with defenseman Gustav Olofsson and injured goaltender Devan Dubnyk.

Foligno won't be looking for revenge after Blackhawks forward John Hayden broke his cheekbone in a fight during their first matchup of the season on October 12.

"We have to win a game tomorrow," Foligno said. "That’s the only thing on my mind. You know, whatever happens, happens. I’m not really looking into getting revenge or anything like that. I guess if it comes up, it comes up. At the end of the day, my biggest focus is on playing so we can beat this team." Foligno has six points in 10 games this season, and impressively only missed one game due to the broken cheekbone. He's more of a hard working third line forward and does not warrant any fantasy consideration moving forward.
