  • Wild's Christian Folin: Called up Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/16) Folin was promoted to the parent club Tuesday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The big Swede has split his 2015-16 campaign fairly evenly between the Wild and minor-league affiliate, AHL Iowa, where he's picked up four goals and nine assists in 28 games. Still, he's more of a stay-at-home type of defenseman who lugs his 6-foot-3, 214-pound body around the front of the net. Rarely will the rugged rearguard produce points, thus making him someone to avoid in virtually any fantasy league.

    Wild's Christian Folin: Healthy scratch Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/16) Folin will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against Washington, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Nate Prosser will be active as a result. Despite the promise of playing time and being paired with Mike Reilly, Folin hasn't make the most of the opportunity as he doesn't have a shot on goal in the last three games. He and Prosser may continue to alternate days off.

    Wild's Christian Folin: Getting regular ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/16) Folin had three blocked shots but was a minus-2 in 17:23 of ice time in Thursday's win over Edmonton. He's getting steady playing time in a defensemen pairing with Mike Reilly.

    New head coach John Torchetti said he liked how Reilly and Folin played together when he coached them at AHL Iowa. It looks like Folin will be a steady part of the blue line rotation, but Folin has never added much on offense.

    Wild's Christian Folin: Recalled by Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

    Folin will provide the Wild with some depth along the blue line as the team prepares for a three-game road trip to begin the second half. He'll get a chance to draw into the lineup Tuesday, but it even if he doesn't play then, the defenseman should get a chance at some point during the trip.
