2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno #487238995 / Nick Foligno is the embodiment of the style of play that the Columbus Blue Jackets covet. He’s a hard-working, gritty forward who plays a tough game, but has a bit of skill to back it up. He’s also been a player who seems to make almost everyone he plays with better in driving shots. Unlike my previous player...

Nick Foligno wants to be 'go to guy' for Jackets

The 2013-2014 NHL season was the second best year of Nick Foligno's career. He went 18-21-39 and was a +5 in 70 games. In four playoff games versus the Pittsburgh Penguins, he scored two goals. Does having a year like the one he just had weigh on his mind? "I think the way we play kind of fits the mold of the player that I am. I felt better as the year went on. I felt like I could...

Foligno looked forward to 'fresh start' when traded to Columbus

The end of the 2011-2012 season saw the Blue Jackets finish in 30th place. They went 29-46-7 for a measly 65 points. They then proceeded to lose out in the draft lottery for the number one draft pick. The club, at this point, seemed rudderless. A culture of mediocrity seemingly played out year after year. On July 1, 2012, Nick Foligno was traded from the Ottawa Senators to Columbus...

Nick Foligno says Blue Jackets are committed to playoff-style hockey every game

It's been a little harder to notice Nick Foligno lately. Not that the Blue Jackets winger hasn't been making big plays, mind you. It's just that he hasn't been on his skates when he's made those plays. In the Columbus win over Detroit Tuesday, Foligno scored that huge first-period goal to tie the Red Wings 1-1 after Detroit seemed ready to take over the game. He swept the puck into...

WATCH: Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno scores sick between-the-legs goal One good thing about hockey is that it doesn’t matter that you don’t know who the heck Nick Foligno is.  1. Foligno is pronounced “Fo-lee-no.”  2. He’s been in the NHL for seven years.  3. He’s the son of former NHLer Mike Foligno.  And 4. None of these facts matter. Next time (if there is one) that you hear Nick Foligno’s name – and don’t confuse him...
