Foligno finished Monday's 1-0 loss to Nashville with a shot on goal, a hit, and a block. He was also called for a minor penalty in the third period.
Without a point in five straight, Foligno was held off the scoresheet for a sixth consecutive game Monday, along with the rest of his teammates, in a game that saw Minnesota shut out by Juuse Saros. The depth forward has a goal and two assists in the month of March (13 games) and 18 points in 77 games in 2018-19.
Foligno dished out an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss in Nashville.
Foligno finally got back in the point column after he had been pointless in his last nine contests. The 27-year-old found Eric Fehr in front, and pushed his season point total to 16 in 67 games. The fact that Foligno received just 12:19 of ice time and still had an assist, two hits and two blocks shows he can produce in a limited role going forward.
Foligno has four points and four blocks while averaging 13:27 in his past five games.
His last five games includes a rarely-seen Gordie Howe hat trick against New Jersey Feb 9. Foligno moved his point total up to 15 in 64 game, while averaging just :03 of power-play ice time. With a limited role in the Minnesota depth chart, fantasy owners should be skeptical about deploying Foligno despite his recent success.
Foligno recorded a Gordie Howe hat trick Saturday in New Jersey by virtue of picking up a goal, an assist and a fighting major.
Foligno accomplished an increasingly rare feat in the modern NHL given the precipitous decline in fisticuffs. He scored his fifth goal of the season in the opening frame, then dropped the gloves with New Jersey's Kurtis Gabriel in the second, just two seconds after Zach Parise had given the Wild a 2-1 lead. Foligno added an assist later in the middle frame to complete the Gordie Howe hat trick. With just 13 points in 55 games, Foligno's fantasy value remains limited despite this spirited performance.
Foligno scored his second goal of 2019 in Monday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Foligno was the first Minnesota scorer in this one, as he wiggled his way around defenseman Nick Holden and one-timed a beautiful pass from Joel Eriksson Ek. Still, despite his strong effort creating offense against a Vegas club that is difficult to beat at home, Foligno is locked into a bottom-six role and severely lacks offensive upside.
Foligno finished Tuesday's 4-0 loss to San Jose with two hits and two blocked shots.
With only six points in 33 games, 2018-19 has been the worst season statistically for the 28-year-old Foligno. Historically, he has been an opportunistic goal scorer with a career shooting percentage of 11.4. However, this season has been different with the veteran forward presently sporting a 5.1 shooting percentage, far and away the lowest of his career.
Foligno failed to record a point in Wednesday's 6-4 win against the Senators.
Foligno was iffy heading into Wednesday's game, having blocked a shot in Minnesota's previous game. The 27-year-old managed to gut it out but was not rewarded with any points, unfortunately. In 22 games, the American-born forward has just a goal and three assists.
Foligno (leg) is confident that he will play Wednesday night against the Senators, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Considering Foligno was merely day-to-day with his injury and has declared himself ready to play, Wild fans can expect him out there again on the fourth line, reprising his role as a penalty-killing specialist. However, you'll have to ask yourself if a forward with just four points through 21 games is even worth owning in the first place. We're guessing there are better options unless you play in an absurdly deep league.
Foligno is hoping his leg injury heals quickly, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Foligno left in the third period of Sunday's contest after blocking a shot, but X-rays following the game came back negative. It's being described as "dead leg" and as of now, it's unclear if the 27-year-old will miss time because of it. Luckily, he'll get the benefit of two days off with Minnesota not scheduled to play again until Wednesday.
Foligno has a goal and an assist in his last two games as he's been clicking with Eric Fehr and J.T. Brown on the fourth line, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
We wouldn't get too excited as Foligno is on the ice mostly for a checking role. He could serve as a low-end option in deeper formats that reward hits (29) and blocks (10).
Foligno (illness) is healthy and ready to go for Friday's clash with Dallas.
After picking up an illness prior to the team's trip to Dallas, there was some initial concern Foligno might not be able to suit up. The Buffalo native remains pointless through the first six games of the season; however, that shouldn't come as a huge surprise considering he is averaging a mere 10:34 of ice time. The winger is unlikely to offer much in terms of offensive production -- he has just two shots on goal -- but could serve as a low-end option in deeper formats that reward hits (17) and blocks (seven).
Foligno is dealing with an illness and Wild coach Bruce Boudreau is trying to determine if the winger will accompany the team to Dallas for Friday's clash with the Stars.
"He was feeling a little under the weather," Boudreau said Wednesday. "We'll reevaluate before we get on the plane." Fortunately, it appears that fantasy owners depending on Foligno will be informed of his status well in advance of Minnesota's next game. This might be a moot point, though, as Foligno likely has drawn fractional ownership rates in fantasy. After all, he's been held without a point through the first six games of the 2018-19 season and is only averaging 10:35 of ice time.
Foligno had two blocks in 8:29 of ice time in Thursday's loss at Colorado.
Foligno begins the season the fourth line, where the Wild like his contributions while in a checking role. The the 26-year-old has averaged over 200 hits over the last five seasons and topped 70 PIM in each of the last three, but his offensive limitations restrict him to the fourth line and keep him completely out of the mix for power-play time.
Foligno notched just one point -- a goal -- during the five-game series against the Jets after finishing the regular season with eight goals and 15 assists over 77 games.
Foligno matched his career-high mark set each of the last two seasons with 23 points again in 2017-18, but he's yet to make a leap to the point of being useful in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. He also saw a career-low 10:52 of ice time on average in his first season with the Wild, likely due in part to an increase in surrounding talent. Foligno remains under contract with the Wild for three more seasons, but it may be past the point in the 29-year-old's career where we can expect a breakout.
Foligno scored the game-winning goal in a 3-1 road win over the Coyotes on Saturday.
The bottom-six winger is up to eight goals and 14 assists through 66 games. Foligno uses his size and strength to control the puck and lay into the opposition. In addition to his attacking-zone efficiency, he's racked up 159 hits this season. You'd have to be in a fairly deep league to find him useful, but he's supported well in that Minnesota offense and at the very least checks out as a value play in DFS settings.
Foligno scored his seventh goal of the season in Friday's win over Vancouver.
He has just four goals and 11 assists in his last 53 games as he's more of a defensive forward with 150 hits. He's on pace to top his 23 points from last season, however.
Foligno set up two goals in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Penguins.
Foligno's two helpers didn't come until the third period, and by then the Wild were looking up at a blowout loss. The American winger has three points in his last three games, but with 16 in 46 this season, he shouldn't be on many fantasy radars.
Foligno had an assist and two hits in 11:15 of ice time in Thursday's win over Buffalo.
Chris Stewart was the odd man out among forwards with the return of Nino Niederreiter and Zach Parise from injury. It's possible the Wild rotate the forward who sits out each night, but it looks like Foligno will keep his ice time on the last line. He has an assist in each of the last two games.
Foligno did not have a shot on goal in 8:59 of ice time in Tuesday's win at Ottawa.
Foligno has been the odd man out lately as he's been a healthy scratch in two of the last three games amid a slump on offense. He has just one goal and three assists in his last 22 games. He's also averaged just 9:19 of ice time in the last two games he has played.
Foligno had six hits and blocked one shot in Saturday's 2-1 victory over St. Louis.
The 26-year-old has nine points (three goals, six assists) in 25 games so far, but his physicality has been his best quality (his 75 hits are 13th in the league). Foligno has also been receiving time on the second power-play lately, and since his career high is 23 points from 2015-16, he has a good chance at surpassing that mark during his first season in Minnesota.
