As the Minnesota Wild face the imminent likelihood of missing out on Stanley Cup contention, they're making crucial roster adjustments.

Recently, insider Mike Russo shared significant news: seasoned forward Marcus Foligno's season has abruptly ended due to a serious injury. Surgery is necessary, prompting the Wild to bench Foligno immediately for an extensive recovery period.

Despite his limited appearances this season, Foligno's contributed 10 goals and 12 assists, totaling 22 points. With one more season on his contract, the decision to sideline him early prioritizes his full recovery for the upcoming training camp.

Additionally, Foligno's full no-movement clause in the contract's final year may influence potential trade discussions, as his recovery progress could impact his value in trade scenarios.
