Fontaine's Hat Trick Carries Wild

News: Justin Fontaine collected his first career hat trick and went plus-3 en route to a 4-1 win over Phoenix on Thursday.
Analysis: Sure, the third goal was into an empty net, but they all count. Justin Fontaine had failed to take a shot on goal in the Wild's last two games and skated just 13:23 in this one, making this one of the least-likely hat tricks you'll see. Still, he now has six points (five of them goals) in his last six contests.

Wild's Fontaine Scores Seventh Goal

News: Justin Fontaine scored his seventh goal of the season in Friday's loss to Winnipeg. He got just over 18 minutes of ice tie.
Analysis: Justin Fontaine had been a healthy scratch for four consecutive games as he'd fallen out of favor of the coaching staff, but he's played the past two games with Zach Parise hurt. Perhaps this goal will keep him in the lineup whenever Parise returns.

News: Justin Fontaine scored his sixth goal in Saturday's win over Carolina.

Wild's Fontaine Scores Winner Tuesday

News: Justin Fontaine scored his second goal of the year Tuesday, and it turned out to be the only one scored on either goalie in a 2-0 win over Montreal.
Analysis: The other goal was an empty-netter by Jason Pominville. Justin Fontaine skated a season-high 16:39 in this one, an interesting development. Keep an eye on his ice time, as the undrafted winger was a reliable offensive producer in college and the AHL.

Fontaine Makes Wild's NHL Roster

News: Justin Fontaine has made Minnesota's Opening Night roster and is expected to begin the season on the second line with Dany Heatley and Charlie Coyle, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It's a surprise that Justin Fontaine looks set to start the season on the second line. However, that spot may not last, as Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter could win bigger roles with hot starts. Still, Fontaine may be worth a look in deeper leagues.

Wild's Fontaine Posts Assist

News: Justin Fontaine had an assist in Monday's preseason win over Columbus.
Analysis: He's drawn praise in training camp and looks poised to win a roster spot with the Wild. He would have to pass through waivers if he was sent to the minors, so that may help land him a role on the fourth line.
