Justin Fontaine stayed hot with a goal and an assist in the Wild’s 3-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Justin Fontaine has been playing with Zach Parise and Mikael Granlund.

He has three goals and one assist over a three-game point streak. However, we would wait a little longer before picking him up off the waiver wire. Fontaine has 19 points in 49 matches.

Justin Fontaine bookended the Wild's 4-0 win over the Oilers on Friday night.

Fontaine's opening tally was a beauty. After giving way to Zach Parise who took the puck from Fontaine in the corner and grinded his way towards Christian Folin at the point, Fontaine floated to the slot and redirected Folin's slapper back against the grain and beyond Ben Scrivens. With the pair he now has seven goals and 18 points in 48 games this season.

Justin Fontaine collected two assists in Saturday's win over Carolina.

Both of Fontaine's assists came off Thomas Vanek goals in the first period. The 27-year-old has four goals and 15 points in 45 games this season. He probably won't have much, if any, fantasy value going forward despite his promotion to the second line.
