Foligno comfortable with move to center after Dubinsky injury

Ken Hitchcock felt the only way to inspire the St. Louis Blues after back-to-back defeats was to completely rearrange his line combinations.Now he has to decide if he wants to stick with the new look.It seems wise to keep intact the new top line of David Backes, Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen heading into Tuesday night's road game against the Columbus Blue Jackets after a...

Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno Drops Kings’ Kyle Clifford With Epic Right Hook (Video)

It didn’t take long for the Columbus Blue Jackets and Los Angeles Kings game to get physical Thursday night. Midway through the first period of Thursday night’s game, things got especially chippy when Kings defenseman Alec Martinez ran Blue Jackets forward Scott Hartnell into the glass stanchion at the end of the benches. Eventually that gave way to a mid-ice bout between Columbus’...

The Hot Take: NHL captains are meaningless

As the Columbus Blue Jackets season has started to slip away from them, the finger pointing has started and a lot of it has been pointed at their new captain, Nick Foligno. Foligno was traded to the Blue Jackets before the lockout shortened season from the Ottawa Senators and has found a nice spot in Columbus where he is able to contribute and do what is asked of him on the ice....

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...

Foligno takes 'Battle On' to heart

The motto for the Columbus Blue Jackets, as they're in the midst of a playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, is "Battle On." This seems appropriate, as the team has had to overcome adversity throughout the year. One player in particular, has epitomized this motto. This season has been a trying one for left wing Nick Foligno, both personally and professionally. The 26-year-old...

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...
