Traverse City Tournament: Players to Watch

3 of 6

Christian Folin 

Christian Folin will be in competition with Dumba at the tournament as both rookie look to land a spot on the Wild blue line. Folin was one of the most sought after free agents who came out of the NCAA this past season and he landed with the Wild. He’s one of the older players coming in at 23, but many believe his four years in the NCAA make him NHL ready.

His shot and a good prospect tournament might make him the second Wild rookie to crack the blue line this season.
