NICK FOLIGNO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Q&A: Blue Jackets' Foligno looks back at trying time, ahead to building upon success

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Twelve months ago, left winger Nick Foligno was preparing for NHL training camps to open. The summer training regimen was complete and he was back in Columbus. He was also preparing, along with his wife Janelle, for the birth of their first child. Ten days after the season started, they welcomed Milana Maria into the world on Oct. 14, 2013. A few days after her...

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno

2013/14 Season Review: Nick Foligno #487238995 / gettyimages.com 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...

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...

WATCH: Blue Jackets’ Nick Foligno scores sick between-the-legs goal

NHL.com 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...

Jackets' Foligno saw this coming

No, he isnt Kreskin. But when Nick Foligno was traded to Columbus in July, this is exactly the vision he had for his new franchise. He knew the history here, but he also believed this team was capable of launching a new era for Blue Jackets hockey. The mission certainly isnt accomplished, but the team is trending in the right direction, and Foligno is extremely pleased about how...

Foligno sees the value in visors

I know its a personal choice, but for me it was an easy one. I wanted to save my eyes; thats pretty much it. That was Columbus Blue Jackets winger Nick Foligno, explaining in the simplest terms his choice to wear a visor when he plays hockey. For him, its all about trying to avoid a catastrophic eye injury that in most cases is avoidable if a visor is worn. My eyes are something...

'New guy' Foligno fitting in with the Jackets

He may be Nick the new guy, but you get the feeling Nick Foligno never feels like the new guy for very long. With his outgoing personality and ready smile, its doubtful the Buffalo native and son of former NHLer Mike Foligno has ever had any trouble fitting in with any team. So its not hard to believe him when he says the move to Columbus from Ottawa has been very smooth so far...
