Wild Sign Marcus Foligno to a 3-Yr Extension

The Minnesota Wild have signed Marcus Foligno to a 3-year extension, a deal that will keep him under contract through the 2023-24 season.

The Minnesota Wild have signed Marcus Foligno to a three-year extension on Tuesday, a deal that will keep him under contract through the 2023-24 season. The extension carries an average annual value of $3.1 million which is a slight bump from the cap hit of $2.875 million he’s got remaining on the final season of his four-year, $11.5MM deal signed in 2017.

Foligno is coming off his best season with the Wild but the contract carries no protections, which is important to note ahead of the looming expansion draft for the Seattle Kraken.

Foligno is an extremely strong defensive forward with a good shot he uses sparingly. The 29-year old forward scored an NHL career-high 25 points (11 goals, 14) assists in 59 games last season.

This new deal means that he will avoid going to unrestricted free agent after the 202-21 NHL season.
