Boudreau was right — it isn’t good.
Folin will miss at least the next three weeks with an upper-body ailment, the club announced on Monday. The news comes just hours after the Wild’s big 3-1 win over the Sharks, one in which Folin exited in the first period (and in which Labanc got two minutes for boarding).
The play in question:
An undrafted free agent out of UMass-Lowell — there was quite a bit of clamoring for his services following his sophomore campaign — Folin has been in and out of the Wild lineup over the last few seasons, spending time with AHL Iowa.
This year, the 26-year-old has played almost exclusively in Minnesota. He has seven points through 44 games, while averaging just under 15 minutes per night.
