The last few restricted free agents are starting to sign around the league, with Bo Horvat going off the board today with the Vancouver Canucks. One of the remaining RFAs, Marcus Foligno told Michael Russo of The Athletic that he’s “very close” to signing, and that it would be done by the start of training camp. Foligno was acquired from the Buffalo Sabres earlier this offseason in the Marco Scandella and Jason Pominville trade, and could be a solid addition to the Wild’s bottom-six. His game is based mostly around physicality and defense, and with the forward depth Minnesota already has in terms of skill, Foligno should fit in alongside Joel Eriksson Ek and Charlie Coyle as an impressive third line.
