  • Kings' Christian Folin: Scores rare goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/4/17) Folin scored a goal in a 3-1 win over the Blackhawks on Sunday.

    The goal was his second of the year (third point) and matches his total from last year. The Swedish defenseman also collected five hits and one blocked shot in the contest, giving him 56 and 25 blocks, respectively, this season.

    Kings' Christian Folin: Scratched last three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/13/17) Folin was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 2-1 loss to San Jose.

    After averaging around 20 minutes of ice time the first three games of the season, Folin's usage has been dropping and he's now been a healthy scratch the last three games. In the 11 games the 26-year-old has played, he's made his presence felt physically averaging 2.9 hits per game. With just a lone point and sporadic ice time, though, he's one to steer clear of from a fantasy standpoint.

    Kings' Christian Folin: Will enter new season healthy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/16/17) Folin (shoulder) played Saturday against the Canucks and is healthy to enter the new season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Folin signed on with the Kings this summer after spending four years with Minnesota, bouncing up and down between minors and the big league. Head coach John Stevens is impressed at how well Folin can handle the puck, especially with his size of 6-foot-3, 214 pounds. He'll look to use his size to help him secure a third-rotation defensive role.

    Kings' Christian Folin: Courted to La La Land

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Folin (shoulder) agreed to terms with the Kings on a one-year contract valued at $850,000 on Saturday, NHL.com reports.

    This is a low-commitment signing, as the Kings can choose to let Folin walk as an unrestricted free agent next summer if he doesn't pan out or has complications following offseason shoulder surgery. However, after watching him go plus-10 with 69 hits and 59 blocked shots in 51 games for the Wild last season, the Swede just might prove to be a serviceable option on LA's back line. The Kings also boasted the league's best Corsi-For percentage (54.96) in 2016-17, and if they can even come close to replicating that gaudy possession value in the upcoming campaign then Folin should see an uptick in offensive production -- just don't expect miracles as he's only produced 23 points in 118 career games at the NHL level.

    Christian Folin: Doesn't receive qualifying offer from Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/26/17) Folin (shoulder) wasn't extended a qualifying offer by the Wild and will become an unrestricted free agent, Frank Seravalli of TSN reports.

    Folin took part in 51 games during the 2016 campaign, tallying six points, 69 hits and 59 blocked shots. He was largely used in a reserve capacity, however, which limited his overall fantasy upside. Folin has yet to rule out re-signing with the Wild as a free agent, but he'll be able to entertain other offers as soon as free agency opens at the start of July.
