  • Wild's Marcus Foligno: Acquired by Minnesota

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/30/17) The Sabres traded Foligno, Tyler Ennis and a third-round pick in 2018 to the Wild on Friday in exchange for Jason Pominville, Marco Scandella and a fourth-round pick in 2018, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    Foligno -- a pending restricted free agent who had a qualifying offer on the table from Buffalo -- racked up 279 hits with the Swords last season, which easily represented a career high and resulted in a fifth-place ranking in the entire league for said category. Furthermore, he's an efficient offensive producer who averaged 22 points in his final three years with Buffalo -- despite skating for a modest 15:28 of ice time. Look out for Foligno in leagues that heavily weigh defensive contributions, knowing that his plus-minus could also spike on a team that sported the best goal differential (plus-58) in the Western Conference in 2016-17.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Qualified by Sabres

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/17) Foligno received a qualifying offer from the Sabres, making him a restricted free agent.

    It was a relatively easy decision for the Sabres, who must be pleased with the progress Foligno has shown over the past two seasons. Labeled as a fourth-line winger with very little upside, Foligno has managed to score 10 goals and 20 points in each of his past two seasons, and remains one of the team's most physical players. Foligno will likely receive a contract with a similar worth to the $2.25 million he earned this past season, and barring any surprises should remain with the Sabres for the foreseeable future. His fantasy value, however, is still very limited because of his lack of high-end skill.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Remains Sabres property

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Foligno was protected by the Sabres for the expansion draft.

    Foligno, who is a restricted free agent and expected to re-sign with the Sabres, finished the season with a career-high 13 goals. It's the second straight year the 25-year-old has scored more than 10 goals and 20 points, and he certainly showed improvement over the course of the season. He missed the final two games due to a knee injury, but he's expected to be healthy by training camp. A physical winger who registered 279 hits, Foligno was a fixture on the Sabres' top three lines, which is where he's expected to play again next season.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Sets career high

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/17/17) Foligno (knee) finished the season with a career-high 13 goals, 12 of which came at even strength, and matched last year's total of 23 points.

    Foligno missed the last two games of the season due to a knee injury, but had one of the most productive seasons of his career. He finished the season with 279 hits in 80 games, an average of 3.5 hits per game, which is second only to Toronto's Matt Martin. After toiling on the team's bottom two lines to begin his career, Foligno's improvement and consistency saw him get promoted to Jack Eichel's left wing in the second half of the season, and his physical play often helped open the ice for Eichel and right winger Sam Reinhart. Another encouraging sign in Foligno's development is his increased willingness to shoot the puck, and for the fourth straight season he improved his shooting percentage. Foligno is penciled in as the second-line left winger for now, and if he maintains that spot he may be poised for a breakout season next year.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Set to miss remainder of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/17) Foligno (knee) has been ruled out for the final two games of the season.

    Foligno will end the campaign just one point shy of setting a new career high, instead repeating his 2015-16 total of 23. While he has been primarily utilized in a second-line role, the winger averaged just 15:28 this season and was not a part of the Sabres power play. Unless he can expand his responsibilities to 5-on-4 situations, the 25-year-old will remain a mid-range fantasy option as best.
