Folin will meet the team in Chicago. He is not playoff eligible #mnwild
Will update with more information as it becomes available.

Year Team GP Goals Assists Points PIM
2012-13 UMass-Lowell 38 6 15 21 24

Link to hfboards thread dedicated to discussion on him on the prospect board
Christian Folin could make instant impact as college free agent
Quote:
In his two years at UMass-Lowell, Folin continued in his development in a big way, growing into a physical, mobile two-way defenseman capable of playing at the NHL level and possibly even excelling. His numbers took a dip this year as his defensive responsibility grew, but in two years, he's posted 40 points in 77 games for one of the best teams in college hockey over that span.

Boom!

Per Craig Custance, Christian Folin to the Wild!

Wild have agreed to terms with college UFA defenseman Christian Folin (UMass-Lowell). Was most coveted college UFA on the market.

From what I've read people were saying he would be similar to Danny Dekeyser.

They might have just been talking about his NHL readiness though.

So for the rest of the regular season (because I believe Folin is ineligible for the playoffs)...

Suter-Spurgeon
Brodin-Folin
Scandella-Prosser/Blum

It'd be great to see Folin and Brodin blossom together

Big, right shot defensemen who can skate.

Sounds good to me.

On paper he seems like the perfect player for Wild.

@Russostrib: Fletcher on Folin:"Physically, you don’t normally have a young man coming out of college or jr that possess his physical attributes" #mnwild

@Russostrib: Folin will practice with #mnwild Wednesday in Chicago. Fletcher said it's up to the coaches whether he plays in any of final 6 gms

Glad to see Fletcher finally winning a war over a free agent. Excited to see what he can do.

Assuming you mean college free agent. We have two pretty highly paid previous spoils of war.

I know to temper my expectations on NCAA free agents, but man is Fletcher a great GM. He sees a need. He goes and fills a need. It may or may not work out, but the man understands where the holes are in the organization.

Amazing the difference between DR Wild where years and years would pass with certain things being even partially addressed.

You mean the difference of trying to improve the team, and system depth, from numerous different sources vs trading picks for Chris Simon

Not sure I see the difference

Fantastic signing. Wild need a big right handed shot in the worst way. Big AND mobile too. Could be a great player. Should at least be pretty solid.

Man that really goes to show what the defensive core "could" be in 2-3 years if the 3 big D prospects pan out.

Suter-Dumba
Brodin-Folin
Scandella-Olofsson

Gorgeous.

The funniest part - to me at least - is that for a while we hardly had any Swedes in the whole system and now it seems like we're trying to build our entire defensive corps with Tre Kronor.

Detroit took all of them and all of the Russians.
