ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild have signed forward Marcus Foligno to a three-year, $9.3 million contract extension.

He's coming off the best season of his career. The deal takes a potential free agent off the market next summer and keeps Foligno in the fold through 2024.

The 29-year-old had 25 points and a plus-8 rating in 2019-20.

Despite playing in only 59 games, both totals were career highs. Foligno also led the Wild with 184 hits.

He is ninth in the NHL with 1,446 hits since the start of the 2013-14 season.
