Marcus Foligno — a.k.a. Moose — brings much-needed size to Wild lineup

Marcus Foligno was posing for pictures at his brother-in-law Mario’s wedding in Sudbury, Ontario, last month when Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill called to alert him that he’d be traded to the Minnesota Wild. “It was a crazy day,” Foligno recalled. “I get a call from my GM, and obviously my mindset switches over to […]

Should the Wild Sign Mike Fisher?

We’re closing in on the end of July and the Minnesota Wild still have some moves to make. The Wild are without a veteran fourth-line center. They have some talented young players who are looking to crack the lineup, but veteran depth never hurts. Matt Cullen has been on the Wild’s radar for most of […]

New Minnesota Wild left wing Marcus Foligno is coming off a promising 2016-17 season with Buffalo Sabres

New Wild forward Marcus Foligno: 'I’m excited to win and be a winner for a long time'

New Wild winger Marcus Foligno made his debut with the Sabres during the 2011-12 season and has been a part of six Buffalo teams — all of which missed the playoffs. So when he was traded to the Wild along with fellow wing Tyler Ennis in a deal last month that sent Marco Scandella and Jason Pominville to Buffalo, he had plenty of mixed emotions. He was leaving the only professional organization he had ever known — one that his father, Mike, also played for — and the city in which he was born. But Foligno was also gaining an opportunity to experience something that had been missing for...

Teen signed to one-day Wild contract dies after cancer battle

BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. — Carson Yaggie left the final conversation with his friend and teammate, Carter Casey, smiling. That wasn’t the plan. Yaggie had visited Casey hoping to put a smile on Casey’s face, seeing as the 17-year-old from Breckenridge, Minn., was struggling with a rare and aggressive form of muscle cancer. That’s not how things […]

Family cleared path for Wild prospect Ivan Lodnia, 17. Now it’s his turn.

Minnesota Wild prospect Ivan Lodnia carries the weight of his entire family on his not-so-broad shoulders. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound winger says it’s the least he can do considering everything his family has done to get him to this point. “I owe them a lot,” he said. “And I haven’t done anything yet to pay them […]

Wild prospect Carson Soucy hopes to crack the NHL roster

Wild prospect Carson Soucy hopes to crack the NHL roster

This isn’t Carson Soucy’s first rodeo. Not even close. While he’s only 22 years old, Soucy is a grizzled old veteran as far as the Minnesota Wild’s annual development camp is concerned. Soucy has attended for the past five years, though this will most certainly be his last go-around as he’s now a professional. Soucy signed […]

The intersection of Malcolm Gladwell, the Wild and the NHL draft

In Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Outliers,” which came out nearly nine years ago, the author lays out a simple but compelling reason why more elite hockey players back then tended to be born in the early months of the year instead of the later ones. The logic is summarized nicely in a Q&A he did with ESPN.com late in 2008: “In Canada, the eligibility cutoff for age-class hockey programs is Jan. 1. … But who tends to be the ‘best’ player at age 8 or 9? The oldest, of course — the kids born nearest the cut-off date, who can be as much as almost a year older than kids born at the...

Wild prospect Sam Anas continues to prove size doesn’t matter

Wild winger Sam Anas has no problem admitting that last season was a struggle for him — at least early on. As a rookie with the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League, the 24-year-old Anas had a tough time adjusting to the professional level. His size, or lack thereof, played the biggest role, as […]
