Wild sign Foligno to four-year, $16M contract extension
The Minnesota Wild have signed forward Marcus Foligno to a four-year, $16 million contract extension with an average annual value of $4 million.
Foligno, 32, had seven goals and 21 points in 65 games last season and led the team in penalty minutes (97) and hits (237).

He is heading into the final season of a three-year, $9.3 million with a $3.1 million AAV.
The Buffalo, N.Y. product has 116 goals and 272 points in 743 career NHL games split between the Sabres and Wild.
The Wild also signed forward Mats Zuccarello to a two-year, $8.25 million contract extension on Friday.
