He will sit in the press box with defenseman Gustav Olofsson and injured goaltender Devan Dubnyk. Dec 14 - 8:19 PM

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.

Marcus Foligno had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-4 win over the New York Islanders.

Foligno's second goal of the season opened the scoring just before the five-minute mark of the first period. He scored from his stomach and added an assist on goal by Jonas Brodin in the third frame. Foligno has contributed five points in seven games with the Wild.

Foligno's power play goal at the 15:39 mark of the second period gave the Wild a 3-2 lead at the time. Unfortunately for them, they let that lead slip away. Foligno now has one goal and two assists in four games. He won't have much value in standard fantasy leagues.

"I anticipate he'll be in camp, and I don't think there will be any issues," Fletcher said. "Once you get past the first week of August, it allows you more time to focus on the other [restricted free agents]." Foligno didn't file for salary arbitration after he was acquired from Buffalo and the Wild don't expect there to be any issues with the negotiation process. He earned 2.25 million on a one-year deal last season.

Minnesota has had initial contract talks with Marcus Foligno.

Foligno's agents have apparently had five potential arbitration cases to deal with, while the Wild have been keeping busy as well. "We've given them the parameters of where we see it, and I'm sure we'll hear back from them shortly and go from there," GM Chuck Fletcher said. "I kind of expected we'd be speaking with Marcus more in August than we would in July." Foligno was acquired from Buffalo at the end of June and he is a restricted free agent.
Jul 27 - 8:51 AM

Marcus Foligno is looking forward to being on a team that has high expectations for the 2017-18 campaign.

Minnesota acquired Foligno from Buffalo in June. He hasn't gotten to participate in a playoff game so far in his six-season NHL career. "It’s been a lot of emotions. At first you get traded and you have to say goodbye to Buffalo. It’s a place I’ve been a long time and I know a lot of great people there," Foligno said. "At the same time, you’re going to a great organization in Minnesota, a great team that is obviously ready to win a Stanley cup. I think that’s the biggest thing. I’m excited to win and be a winner for a long time." Foligno is a restricted free agent, so he still needs a new contract, but he said he's "looking forward to being with the Wild for a while." He had 13 goals, 23 points, and 73 penalty minutes in 80 games in 2016-17.
Jul 22 - 9:26 AM

Foligno had 13 goals and 23 points in 80 games last season. He's a very physical forward as illustrated by his 73 penalty minutes and 279 hits in 2016-17.
Jun 30 - 12:11 PM

"I hope I'm back there next year," Foligno said. "Obviously, you want to be with the best players on the team. We had some good games with Jack and Sam [Reinhart]." He potted a career-high 13 goals in 2016-17 and combined with Eichel on seven. Foligno finished the 2016-17 campaign with 23 points and 73 penalty minutes in 80 games.
