Wild's Fontaine Scores In Loss

News: Justin Fontaine scored on his only shot attempt in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine saw only 12:52 of action and no power-play minutes in the loss. The lack of ice time has been a recurring theme of late for Fontaine, who has been mostly a black hole offensively since a five-point October. He's tallied just three points over his last 21 contests.

Wild's Fontaine Unlikely To Play Tuesday

News: Justin Fontaine will likely be a healthy scratch Tuesday against Philadelphia, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine has just one point in his last 14 games. He's seen his ice time decline during his slump and now he may be the odd man out.

Wild's Fontaine Scores Second Goal

News: Justin Fontaine scored his second goal of the season in Friday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine is well off his pace from last season when he scored 13 goals but is on pace for similar points as he has more assists. He ended a six-game pointless streak, so hopefully Friday's goal gets him going.

Fontaine Nets Two Points For Wild

News: Justin Fontaine chipped in a pair of assists, a plus-2 rating and two penalty minutes during Thursday's 6-3 victory over Buffalo.
Analysis: The nice night ended a five-game point drought for Justin Fontaine, who's now accumulated seven points in total over 13 games. That's modest production, but it does represent an uptick in his scoring rate over last year's goal-heavy 21 points in 66 games.

Three-Game Point Streak For Wild's Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine gathered an assist and finished with a plus-2 rating Thursday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine started the contest on the Wild's fourth line, but after impressing coach Mike Yeo in the early stages of the game, he was ultimately elevated to the third line with Kyle Brodziak and Thomas Vanek, an arrangement that proved fruitful for the trio. Given that Fontaine has now generated a goal and three assists over the last three games, Yeo could decide to keep him on the third line and see if he can continue to deliver quality production with an uptick in ice time.

First Goal For Wild's Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine scored his first goal of the year in Tuesday's win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine's game-tying tally in the third period was his third point in two games. After he potted 13 goals as a rookie last year, Fontaine is expected to elevate his game this season, though he'll have a hard time exceeding last year's totals if his ice time remains so thin.

Wild's Fontaine Dishes Out Two In Loss

News: Justin Fontaine compiled two assists in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine helped out on the Wild's first two goals of the game, but it wasn't enough to hold off the Rangers, who rallied for five tallies in the third period to take the game. The winger has a respectable three points in five games, but his continued presence on the team's checking line will more than likely prevent him from maintaining that scoring rate.

Wild Activate Fontaine From IR

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) has been activated from injured reserve and will play in Friday's game against the Ducks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Surprisingly, Justin Fontaine is being penciled in to make his season debut on the second line with Thomas Vanek and Mikko Koivu, rather than the checking-line role he filled during training camp. The Wild could choose to move Fontaine down the depth chart if he fails to take off in his first few games back, but for the time being, an opportunity exists for him to carve out some fantasy value.

Wild's Fontaine Likely To Return Friday

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) appears to be on track to play Friday against the Ducks, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Wild waived Stu Bickel on Monday, which will open up a spot on the active roster for Justin Fontaine. Last season, Fontaine finished fourth on the team in goals, potting 13 during the regular season.

Wild's Fontaine Won't Play Thursday

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's season opener against the Avalanche, Chad Graff of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine resumed practicing earlier this week and is slated to do so again Thursday, but he's not yet 100 percent healthy. Ryan Carter, who signed with the Wild on Monday, is expected to step in on the fourth line in Fontaine's stead.

Wild's Fontaine Could Play Thursday

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) may be healthy enough to suit up for the season opener against the Avalanche on Thursday, Chad Graff of the Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine was supposed to be sidelined for a few more weeks, but apparently his condition has improved a lot over the last few days. He's currently on IR, but would be eligible to return for opening night if healthy.

Wild's Fontaine (Groin) Practices Monday

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) is on injured reserve but practiced with the team Monday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: While Justin Fontaine is expected to miss a few weeks due to the injury, the fact that he is practicing with the team Monday may hint towards an earlier return. He posted a surprising 21 points on the fourth line last season, and should serve in a similar role again this year.

Wild's Fontaine Out For Start Of Season

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) is expected to miss "a few weeks," Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: At the very least, Justin Fontaine will be out for Opening Night, and the Wild may have to consider placing him on injured reserve if his absence ends up spanning multiple games. Fontaine provided a surprising amount of offense (21 points in 66 games) despite being relegated to a fourth-line role last season. His absence could gave the way for three of Jason Zucker, Stephane Veilleux, Cody Almond and Brett Sutter to crack the Wild's 23-man roster.

Wild's Fontaine (Groin) Held Out Of Practice

News: Justin Fontaine was held out of Wednesday's practice due to an expected groin concern, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine battled the groin strain early in camp before returning to preseason action, but it appears he's still not quite over the ailment just yet. The Wild seem to think he'll be healthy for the start of the regular season, so there's probably nothing to worry about quite yet.

Wild's Fontaine Returns From Groin Injury

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) had two shots on goal in 16:22 of ice time in Thursday's exhibition loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine has missed some practice time due to a sore groin muscle, but it doesn't look like a worry for the regular season. Fontaine will compete for a spot on Minnesota's fourth line.

Wild's Fontaine Rejoins Practice

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) took part in Wednesday's practice, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It's not yet known in what capacity Justin Fontaine was available for the session, but it appears safe to say that a long-term absence has been ruled out. Assuming Fontaine will be good to go for the start of the regular season, a role on the checking line probably looms for the 26-year-old.

Wild's Fontaine (Groin) Not Practicing

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) is not practicing Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine is dealing with a sore groin and missed the Wild's opening preseason game Monday. The team has not provided a timetable for his return, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will keep him out for an extended period.

Wild's Fontaine Agrees To Contract

News: Justin Fontaine has agreed to a two-year contract to remain with the Wild, the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine played 66 games during his rookie season for the Wild last season, finishing the campaign with 13 goals and 21 points, including a hat trick in January. He'll continue his development with Minnesota and likely see more playing time in the upcoming season.

Fontaine Kicks Off Scoring For Wild

News: Justin Fontaine scored a first-period goal in Friday's Game 4 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: It was the first goal of the postseason for Justin Fontaine, who has been a healthy scratch in four of the Wild's 11 playoff contests. However, with a point in each of his last two games, it seems likely that Fontaine will be a lineup mainstay for the remainder of the series.

Wild's Fontaine Won't Play Wednesday

News: Justin Fontaine will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against Vancouver, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Cody McCormick will be back in the lineup as a result. Justin Fontaine has been productive in stretches this season, but his playing time continues to be erratic.

Multipoint Night For Wild's Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine had a goal, an assist, and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine was the benefactor of a move up to the second line with Mikko Koivu and Matt Moulson, after being scratched five straight games prior to Monday's game against Boston. With the line combining for eight points there's a good chance Fontaine will be there again on Thursday against New Jersey.

Wild's Fontaine Sits Due to Illness

News: Justin Fontaine missed Tuesday's win over Tampa Bay due to an illness.
Analysis: It's not clear if he'll be able to play Thursday against Nashville, but it's not thought to be something that would keep him out after the Olympic break.
