Wild's Marcus Foligno: Distributes two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno registered two assists and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

Foligno helped out on goals by Brad Hunt and Jordan Greenway as the Wild's top six fired on all cylinders Friday. The 29-year-old Foligno is enjoying a hot run of production with six goals and five helpers in the last 10 games. He's at 14 points, a plus-10 rating, 49 hits, 22 PIM and 21 shots on goal in 19 contests overall.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Buries only goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a goal and added three hits in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Foligno got the Wild on the board at 9:58 of the second period, but that was the extent of their offense. The 29-year-old forward has seven goals, 12 points, 21 shots on net, 48 hits and 22 PIM in 18 appearances. He's been pretty effective in a third-line role, and his physical play could give him a little extra appeal in fantasy.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Enjoys big second period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored twice on two shots and added an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to Vegas.

Foligno racked up all three of his points during the second period to help send the Wild into the locker room with a 4-2 lead. He was in the right place at the right time on his first tally, crashing the net while a Jonas Brodin centering pass deflected off his skate and then off his opposite knee before bouncing past Marc-Andre Fleury, giving Minnesota a 2-1 lead. He led a 2-on-1 rush later in the period and picked the top corner from the left circle for his second of the night, making it a 4-2 game. Those two goals sandwiched Foligno's assist on a Nick Bonino goal. The 29-year-old now has four goals and four helpers through 16 games with a solid plus-7 rating.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Key performer in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a shorthanded goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Avalanche.

Foligno recorded his second straight multi-point effort in Wednesday's big win. His shorthanded tally in the second period stood as the game-winning goal, and he also assisted on Zach Parise's marker. Foligno has eight points, 16 shots on goal, 40 hits and a plus-7 rating in 14 contests this season.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Records Gordie Howe hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a goal, dished an assist, notched a fighting major and added four hits in Monday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

Foligno did the fighting first, scrapping with Sharks defenseman Nikolai Knyzhov in the first period. Shortly after he finished serving the fighting major, Foligno assisted on Ian Cole's first goal with the Wild. The 29-year-old Foligno added the goal midway through the middle frame to put the Wild up 4-1. He's up to six points, 16 PIM, 39 hits and a plus-5 rating through 13 contests this year.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Credited with power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a power-play goal on two shots, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

Foligno tallied just as a Carter Rowney tripping penalty expired in the third period. The tally restored the Wild's advantage to two goals, and it was Foligno's second marker of the year. The 29-year-old forward has added a pair of assists, 12 shots on net, 34 hits and a plus-3 rating in 11 appearances.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Lifted from protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

It appears Foligno will be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Kings. The 29-year-old is slated to play on the third line. He's lauded more for his defensive abilities than offensive production, but Foligno did add three points through the first nine games.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Goes to COVID-19 protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Sunday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Foligno will miss Sunday's game against the Avalanche. The Wild start a two-game road trip against the Avalanche on Tuesday, and Foligno is expected to miss both of those outings. Kyle Rau and Gerald Mayhew were both promoted from the taxi squad to add depth until Foligno can return.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Providing offense in limited role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno has supplied two assists and six shots while averaging 15:04 of ice time over his past five contests.

After posting a career-high 25 points in the 2019-20 season, Foligno has followed it up with a solid start to this season. Despite playing in a bottom-six role with virtually no power-play time, the 29-year-old has three points and nine shots over eight games this season. Foligno's heavy game will likely keep him in the lineup going forward (he has 25 hits and three blocks this year), but his limited offensive upside won't be enough to warrant serious fantasy contention.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Posts assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno notched an assist, four hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

Foligno picked up the secondary helper on Jordan Greenway's empty-net goal in the third period. The assist ended a three-game drought for Foligno, who has two points, 16 hits and a plus-3 rating through five appearances. While he's a solid source of hits, Foligno's scoring numbers aren't likely to be enough to earn him a spot on virtual rosters.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Converts equalizer Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a goal and doled out four hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kings.

Foligno, fresh off of signing a three-year contract, cashed in for the game-tying goal at 9:42 of the third period. The ever-present bottom-six forward had a career-best 25 points in only 59 contests last year while adding 184 hits and 30 PIM. Foligno's probably not going to score enough to be of interest in standard formats, but his elite physical numbers could make him worth a look in deeper formats.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Inks three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno signed a three-year, $9.3 million contract with the Wild on Tuesday.

Foligno will be playing under the final year of his contract during the 2020-21 season, carrying a $2.875 million cap hit. The new deal locks down the 29-year-old in Minnesota through the 2023-24 campaign. Foligno is a strong bottom-six presence, specifically in the defensive zone, and he dished out 184 hits over 59 games last season. The New York native added 11 goals and a career-high 25 points in that stretch as well. Foligno is expected to flank Joel Eriksson Ek on the third line to start the year.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Physical presence in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno notched an assist and produced a game-high eight hits in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Foligno had five more hits than the next-highest total on the team, which was defenseman Matt Bartkowski's three. The 28-year-old Foligno added an assist on Eric Staal's first-period tally. Foligno, Staal and Kevin Fiala worked on the first line as head coach Dean Evason shuffled his lines a bit in an attempt to spark the offense. During the four-game series, Foligno had just one assist, but added 23 hits, five PIM and a minus-2 rating.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Posts helper Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno recorded an assist and two PIM in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ducks.

Foligno has three points in his last two games after a six-game point drought. The 28-year-old forward is up to a career-high 25 points to go with 184 hits, 86 shots on net and 28 PIM in 59 outings. He can carry some value in deeper formats that reward physicality.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Multi-point showing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored an even-strength goal on three shots and added an assist in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Kings.

Foligno recorded his first points in seven games, collecting a plus-3 rating in the game despite his team losing by four goals. The 28-year-old has produced a career-best season from a statistical perspective, racking up 24 points, 86 shots and 184 hits across 14:35 per game in 58 contests.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: First goal in over a month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a goal on his only shot and had two hits in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

Foligno batted his own rebound out of mid-air to provide Minnesota's only scoring. It was Foligno's first goal since Jan. 14, snapping a 14-game goal drought. The physical veteran has 10 goals and 22 points in 51 games. He's within striking distance of his previous career highs of 13 and 23, respectively.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Records assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno collected a helper, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 win over the Stars.

Foligno set up Ryan Suter for a shot, which rebounded to Joel Eriksson Ek for the Wild's first goal of the game. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Foligno, who now has 21 points, 62 shots and 146 hits through 44 contests. He's never recorded more than 23 points in a season -- a mark he's achieved three times -- but it seems likely the 28-year-old will do so in 2019-20.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Manages helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno provided an assist and three hits in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

Foligno picked up the secondary helper on Luke Kunin's third-period tally. The 28-year-old winger has racked up five goals and three assists in his last eight games. He's up to 20 points and 134 hits this season in just 39 games. Foligno had 23 points in three straight years as his career high, but he's on pace to shatter that mark in 2019-20.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Scores another, but Wild lose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored his team's only goal in a 4-1 loss to Vancouver on Sunday.

Foligno has scored eight goals this season, including four in his last five games. With only 17 points to his name in 2019-20, Foligno needs to find other ways to impact games and has done so by dishing out 119 hits this season.

Wild's Marcus Foligno: Rare two-goal game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno potted a pair of goals in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flames.

Foligno struck twice in the first period, but neither lead held up in a back-and-forth game. The forward has scored in bunches recently, with consecutive two-point games following a five-game drought that came after a three-point outing. With 16 points, 49 shots on goal and 116 hits in 33 games, Foligno is just too streaky to be relied on in fantasy.
