Wild's Fontaine Out For Game 3

News: Justin Fontaine (lower body) will not play in Tuesday's Game 3 against the Blackhawks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine will sit for a second straight game while he contends with the injury. Kyle Brodziak slots in as the Wild's fourth-line right wing.

Wild's Fontaine (Lower Body) Out Sunday

News: Justin Fontaine suffered a lower body injury in Friday's Game 1 that will force him to miss Sunday's Game 2 against the Blackhawks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: It isn't clear how severe Justin Fontaine's ailment is at this point in time, but the fact that he's already been ruled out of Sunday's Game 2 certainly isn't promising. His next chance to rejoin Minnesota's lineup will come on Tuesday in Game 3 of the Wild's series with the Blackhawks.

Wild's Fontaine Nets Game 6 Winner

News: Justin Fontaine scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Blues.
Analysis: It was the first goal of the playoffs for Justin Fontaine, who racked up two points in Round 1. The fourth-liner is a decent depth scorer who is capable of potting 10-15 goals in the regular season. While Fontaine has only registered four points in 14 career NHL playoff games, the Wild will need continual production from their bottom-six if they hope to get past the Blackhawks in Round 2.

Wild's Fontaine (Illness) Fine For Monday

News: Justin Fontaine (illness) will be available for Monday's Game 3 matchup against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine missed Saturday's contest due to the illness, but it appears the worst his behind him. Assuming something doesn't pop up in the next day, mark him good to go.

Wild's Fontaine (Illness) Out Saturday

News: Justin Fontaine (illness) will not play on Saturday in Game 2 of the Wild's playoff series against the Blues, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine will be held out of Saturday's contest due to an illness. His next chance to return to Minnesota's lineup will come on Monday.

Wild's Fontaine Picks Up Assist In Game 1

News: Justin Fontaine gathered an assist in the Wild's Game 1 victory over the Blues on Thursday.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine received a spot on the Wild's fourth line ahead of the likes of Ryan Carter, Erik Haula, and Jordan Schroeder for the postseason opener, and seemed to take advantage of the opportunity. He set up Jason Zucker's wraparound goal to stake the Wild to an early 1-0 advantage.

Trio Of Points For Wild's Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine put up a trio of points Saturday, scoring a goal and dishing out two helpers in an impressive 6-3 win over the visiting Blues.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine doesn't chip in all that much offensively (nine goals and 18 assists in 62 games) so his production was certainly welcomed against a tough opponent in St. Louis. Still, the best place for him is on your waiver wire, as he'll likely only provide a couple more points in the final 10 games of the season.

WIld's Fontaine Pots Game-Winner Vs. Avs

News: Justin Fontaine scored the game-winning goal Saturday against Colorado.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine has been productive of late, compiling three goals and nine points in his last eight games. He's now got eight goals, 22 points and a plus-11 rating in 52 games on the season. He can be trusted in some very deep leagues, but considering he averages just 11:32 of ice time, the bottom-six forward doesn't hold much fantasy value.

Two Goals For Wild's Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine bagged a pair of goals in a 4-0 shutout of the Oilers on Friday. His first tally at 10:18 of the first period held up as the game winner.
Analysis: With a recent four-game, five-point outburst, Justin Fontaine now has seven goals and 11 assists in 48 contests this season. The 27-year-old sophomore isn't going to turn any heads with his offensive abilities, but he's a nice piece of depth scoring for the Wild who's set to surpass his rookie point total of 21 from 2013-14.

Wild's Fontaine Adds Two Assists To Ledger

News: Justin Fontaine racked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine saw most of his ice time Saturday on the Wild's second line with Thomas Vanek and Mikael Granlund, which paid immediate dividends when he set up both of Vanek's first-period goals. The winger has primarily occupied a bottom-six role for the Wild this season, but with three forwards (Matt Cooke, Ryan Carter, and Jason Zucker) facing lengthy absences, opportunity knocks for Fontaine. He'll need to prove himself as a capable setup man in the games to come if he hopes to maintain his spot alongside Vanek and Granlund.

Wild Activate Fontaine

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) has been activated from IR by the Wild.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine, who last played on Jan. 29, checks back into the team's forward mix with 13 points and six PIM in 42 games, numbers that restrict his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

Wild's Fontaine Close To Returning

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) missed his third consecutive game Saturday, but it close to returning, the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine returned to practice Friday, so he could play Monday against Vancouver.

Wild's Fontaine (Groin) Returns To Practice

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) is practicing Friday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: As expected, Justin Fontaine rejoined his teammates at practice, after skating on his own the past two days. He may have a shot to return for Saturday's game against Colorado or Monday's game against Vancouver.

Wild's Fontaine Plans To Practice Friday

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) plans to practice Friday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine has skated on his own the last two days without incident and should receive clearance to rejoin his mates for an on-ice session. At this point, it doesn't sound like he'll be a candidate to play Saturday against the Avalanche, but he could be back to full health by next week.

Wild's Fontaine Placed On IR

News: Justin Fontaine (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chad Graff reports.
Analysis: Minnesota doesn't have any games from Wednesday through Friday, so the transaction only rules Justin Fontaine out for Tuesday's contest with the Blackhawks. He suffered the injury during Thursday's game against the Flames, and he hasn't practiced since that time. The Wild recalled Jordan Schroeder to fill Fontaine's roster spot.

Wild Rule Fontaine Out Sunday With Groin Injury

News: Justin Fontaine's lower-body injury is a groin ailment, which will prevent him from playing in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Groin injuries tend to linger and can be quite troubling for skaters, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Justin Fontaine's absence lasted multiple games. For now, the Wild will consider Fontaine day-to-day and see if he can make enough improvement to resume skating.

Wild's Fontaine Appears Doubtful For Sunday

News: Justin Fontaine (lower body) didn't participate in Saturday's practice, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Due to Sunday's early game time against the Canucks, the Wild likely won't hold a morning skate in which the training staff could gauge Justin Fontaine's health. As a result, it seems likely that he'll miss the contest, with Erik Haula expected to reenter the lineup in his stead.

Wild's Fontaine Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Justin Fontaine sufferered a lower-body injury in Thursday's game against the Flames, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine's injury apparently went undetected at first, but coach Mike Yeo indicated that he suffered one at some point during the third period. The Wild don't play again until Sunday, giving him three days to rest, but his status should be checked prior to the game.

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.
