Wild Winger Marcus Foligno Embraces New Team

July 21, 2017 02:48 PM

New Wild Winger Marcus Foligno is slowly adapting to change with his new family in Minnesota.

"It'll take a little time for me to get acclimated to Minnesota and the Wild, Buffalo is where I grew up and it's the only team I've ever known, but this team is set to win and that excites me," says Marcus Foligno.


Marcus played for the Buffalo Sabres, the same team his father Mike played for 10 of his 15 years in the NHL. Marcus was a fourth-round pick by Buffalo in the 2009 NHL Draft, and has learned quickly how to be successful in the NHL.

"It's all about putting in the time to work, I don't take anything for granted. When you put in the time, success tends to follow," Foligno adds.

Marcus and his wife Natascia are in town looking for a place to live before Wild camp opens in September.
