Wild's Folin Records Two Assists

News: Christian Folin dished out a pair of helpers in Sunday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Christian Folin now has points in back-to-back games, giving him nine points (one goals) in 31 games on the season. He's averaging just 15:01 of ice time and has only played 32 career NHl games, so it might take some time before the 24-year-old to become fantasy relevant. The potential is there, though, so keep an eye on him.

News: Christian Folin was reassigned to AHL Iowa on Thursday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Christian Folin had been a healthy scratch for the Wild's last six games and didn't seem to be on the cusp of breaking into the lineup. With the 24-year-old still in need of development time, he'll report to AHL Iowa, where he'll be able to reclaim a regular gig on their blue line.

Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo said after the session that he plans on having Christian Folin available for Thursday's game against the Sabres, but the Wild could still recall an extra defenseman just in case.

Analysis: He intercepted a clearing pass at the blue line and simply ripped a slap shot past San Jose's Alex Stalock for the unassisted tally.

Wild's Folin Could Be Back Saturday

News: Christian Folin (illness) has reported improvement with his condition and could be an option for Saturday's game against the Stars, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Christian Folin indicated he's been symptom-free for the last two days, but he'll probably need to get back on the ice for a practice or two before the Wild proceed with activating him. Both Folin and defensive partner Keith Ballard have missed the past five games with the illness.

Wild Move Folin To IR

News: Christian Folin (illness) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Both Christian Folin and Keith Ballard continue to remain at less-than-optimal health due to a mysterious illness, resulting in the Wild moving both players to IR to provide the team with some more depth on defense. Since the two blueliners have already been out for over a week, they'll be able to return to action as soon as they're deemed healthy. Justin Falk and Stu Bickel were recalled from AHL Iowa in corresponding moves.

Wild's Folin Out With Illness Thursday

News: Christian Folin (illness) won't be available Thursday against the Coyotes, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Both Christian Folin and his usual defensive partner (Keith Ballard) were feeling sick Thursday morning, prompting coach Mike Yeo to tab Matthew Dumba and Nate Prosser for third-pairing duties. A day out of the lineup should be all Folin needs to clear up the illness, before a likely return to action Saturday against the Bolts.
