Marcus Foligno News
Foligno will miss a minimum of one week with a left facial fracture.
Foligno dropped the mitts with Blackhawks’ forward John Hayden and was absolutely devastated by a right haymaker, fracturing a facial bone in the process. Foligno joins a long list of injured Wild forwards, but is only expected to miss a week or so.

The Wild acquired Marcus Foligno, Tyler Ennis and a 2018 3rd round pick from the Sabres for Marco Scandella, Jason Pominville and a 2018 4th round pick.
Foligno is a big-body (6’2” / 215 lbs.) that has improved offensively in each of his six NHL seasons, setting a new career-high in goals (13) and tying a career-best in points (23) a season ago. Foligno will likely take Pominville’s spot as a third line winger in Minnesota, but doesn’t offer nearly any fantasy value due to his limited power play exposure.
The Sabres signed Marcus Foligno to a one-year contract worth $2.25 million on July 14th.
Since breaking into the NHL in 2011-12, Foligno has seen his point-production rise a little bit in each season, reaching 23 points (10G / 13A) in 75 games last year. Still not great production from the 24-year-old, but another one-year deal should motivate him for more in 2016-17.
