The Toronto Maple Leafs and general manager Kyle Dubas made some noise during the NHL trade deadline and that included landing a pretty major piece. 

Nick Foligno. 

However it didn't help as the Leafs once again found themselves out of the playoffs during the first round. 

With Foligno hitting free agency, the speculation was that he would either return to Columbus or possibly sign with the Leafs. 

That doesn't seem to be the case. 

With Foligno's days in the NHL dwindling down thanks to his gritty style, Andy Strickland reports that Foligno is looking to play with his brother Marcus in Minnesota. 

The Wild have freed up plenty of cap space recently and Strickland says Minnesota is at the top of Nick's list so he can play with Marcus who is a core player in Minny. 

Do you think the Wild is a good fit for Nick?

Foligno registered 4 assists in 7 games for the Leafs during the regular season and added 1 assist in 4 games during the playoffs.
