ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with restricted free-agent left wing Marcus Foligno on a four-year, $11.5 million contract.

The Wild announced the deal Thursday, the day before they take the ice for the start of training camp. Foligno will make $2 million this season, $3 million in 2018-19, $3.5 million in 2019-20 and $3 million in 2020-21 for an average annual value of $2.875 million.

The 26-year-old Foligno was acquired June 30 in a four-player, two-draft pick trade with Buffalo. He had a career-high 13 goals and 57 blocked shots last season for the Sabres while ranking fifth in the NHL with 279 hits, also a career best.
