Jackets' Foligno Records Two Assists

News: Nick Foligno recorded a pair of assists in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: That's 10 points in eight games for Nick Foligno, who is up to 23 goals and 55 points in 56 games on the season. Considering he's appeared on the scoresheet in seven of his last eight outings and has been a point-per-game player this season, there is no reason not to keep the 27-year-old all-star rolling.

Jackets' Foligno Nets 23rd Of Season

News: Nick Foligno's breakout season continued Saturday when he notched his 23rd goal in a 3-1 loss to Montreal. He has 53 points in 54 games this year.
Analysis: He has eight points, including five goals, in his last seven games. We honestly never imagined this kind of production from him, but we'll certainly take it. Enjoy every moment.

Jackets' Foligno Playing Thursday

News: Nick Foligno (lower body) will play in Thursday's game against the Penguins, Jeff Rimer of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Nick Foligno went through pregame warmups, skating on the third line with Artem Anisimov and Marko Dano. Foligno only lost one game to the lower body injury, and he should be fine to handle his usual workload.

Jackets' Foligno Expected To Play Thursday

News: While coach Todd Richards said a final decision on Nick Foligno's (lower body) status for Thursday's game against the Penguins would come after pregame warmups, the expectation is that the forward will play, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Nick Foligno took part in the Blue Jackets' morning skate and didn't stay on the ice for extra work afterward, signaling that he'll be back in the lineup after a one-game absence. The winger has been sensational all season with 22 goals, 30 assists, and a plus-9 rating over 53 games, so those who roster him will likely want to keep him active Thursday even if he happens to be running at less than 100 percent.

Jackets' Foligno Doesn't Practice Wednesday

News: Nick Foligno (lower body) didn't skate with the team on Wednesday, but Blue Jackets' coach Todd Richards is still hopeful that he'll be in the lineup Thursday against the Penguins, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Nick Foligno leads the Jackets in goals with 22, and is tied with Ryan Johansen for the team lead in points (52). It looks like the club's injury jinx this season didn't hit Foligno with anything serious, but his fantasy owners would still prefer to see him back on the ice sooner rather than later.

Blue Jackets' Foligno Sidelined Tuesday

News: Nick Foligno (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Nick Foligno is thus considered day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the Penguins after missing Tuesday's morning skate, per Jeff Rimer of FOX Sports Ohio.

Blue Jackets' Foligno Iffy For Tuesday

News: Nick Foligno is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Flyers with a lower-body injury, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Per the report, GM Jarmo Kekalainen indicated that Nick Foligno's injury is not believed to be serious, but it looks like the Blue Jackets' leading scorer will probably miss Tuesday's contest.

Nick Foligno

Point Streak Rages On For Jackets' Foligno

News: Nick Foligno found the net on one of his three shot attempts in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Islanders, extending his point streak to five games.
Analysis: Nick Foligno has been a popular "sell-high" candidate since he opened the season with three goals and six assists in his first six games, but it seems safe to say that his performance is no longer an aberration. He's gone no more than three games without a point this season, and has been sizzling since serving as one of the captains for the All-Star Game. In nine second-half contests, Foligno has notched four goals and six assists to maintain a roughly point-per-game scoring pace for the season.

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno: Four Points In Last Two Games

News: Nick Foligno chipped in his 21st goal of the season in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Senators. It stood as the game winner.
Analysis: He has four points, including three goals, in his last two games. At this point, every point is gravy as he enters uncharted territory -- his 49 points are a career best and he's done it in just 50 games. Use him while he's hot, but keeper leaguers should weigh his value in trade. This peak is coming at age 27 and in his eighth season. Given today's NHL, that kind of outburst feels like it's coming a little late. We're not saying it's not repeatable, but you need to weigh your options, particularly if you're out of the running.

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno Records Three Points

News: Nick Foligno scored two goals and had an assist in Friday's win over the Blues.
Analysis: With his second tally of the night, Nick Foligno reached the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. With six points in his last five games, the 27-year-old continues to produce at close to a point-per-game pace, netting 48 points in 49 games on the season. Keep the 2015 NHL All-Star rolling.

Jackets' Foligno Grabs Two More Points

News: Nick Foligno picked up two assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Fresh off his two-point All-Star Game performance, Nick Foligno kept things going. He'd been cool heading into the break, with just a single point in his prior four games, but Foligno's rise to power continues nonetheless. With 44 points, he's just three shy of his career high now.

Nick Foligno, LW, CLB Jackets' Foligno: Streak At Seven Games, 10 Points

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno: Streak At Seven Games, 10 Points

News: Nick Foligno's point streak stands at seven games and 10 points, including eight assists, after he scored his 18th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: He has 40 points in just 39 games this season. There's a chance this level of play might be real -- he is just 27, after all. And that's when a lot of players used to break out. But the NHL is a changed place and we're not entirely sure he fits the profile of a true point-per-game guy. Bottom line? Keeper owners may want to leverage his value in a deadline deal. There are some things you want to hold onto there are others you don't want to get stuck with. There's a chance he's the latter.

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno Nets Assist Trio

News: Nick Foligno handed out a hat trick's worth of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: He now has points in five consecutive games, with a goal and seven assists to show for that span. The amazing breakout continues -- he's just one point short of last year's 39, but this time he's done it in 38 games instead of 70.

Nick Foligno, LW, CLB Jackets' Foligno Helps On Two

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno Helps On Two

News: Nick Foligno added a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Nick Foligno has points in four straight and has 35 through 36 games on the season. The 27-year-old is well on his way to breaking his old career-high in both goals (18) and points (47), and is currently on pace to surpass 70 points by the end of the season.

Columbus' Foligno Begins Points Streak

News: Nick Foligno notched an assist in a 3-1 win over Minnesota on Wednesday.
Analysis: Nick Foligno paid instant dividends after the team signed him to a six-year extension worth $5.5 million per year. The assist now gives Foligno two points in his past two games and five points in his past five games. The 27-year-old is enjoying a breakout season in Columbus with 32 points in 34 games. He's well on his way to shatter his career-high of 47 points and his 17 goals ranks eighth in the league. He should be owned in all formats and a salute to clever owners who took a late-round gamble on the former 28th overall pick.

Jackets' Sign Foligno To Extension

News: Nick Foligno signed a six-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.
Analysis: Nick Foligno was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but his new deal will lock him up through the 2020-21 campaign. He's been having a spectacular season so far, and is on pace for career-highs in both goals and assists. The 27-year-old has been both a force on the power play, and one of the fantasy surprises of 2014-15.

Jackets' Foligno Notches PP Goal

News: Nick Foligno tallied his ninth power-play goal of the season in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Bruins.
Analysis: Nick Foligno has been a terror on the man advantage all season, tallying 17 of his 31 points when the Jackets have an extra skater. The recent returns from injury of Brandon Dubinsky and most recently, Scott Hartnell resulted in Foligno getting pushed down to the third line to start Saturday's game, but he still saw over 20 minutes of ice time. No matter who he lines up with, Foligno remains rosterable in any format until he notices a prolonged slump in what has been a dream season to this point.

Foligno Racks Up Three Points For Jackets

News: Nick Foligno scored two goals -- one on a power play -- and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Washington.
Analysis: On the dark side of things, he went minus-1 and lost eight out of nine faceoffs. But hey, it's a three-point night, so let's not nitpick too much -- especially now that Nick Foligno's officially a point-per-game man, with 30 in 30.

Jackets' Foligno Notches OT Winner

News: Nick Foligno scored the Jackets' first goal and then found net on an overtime power play to deliver a 3-2 win over Washington on Thursday.
Analysis: Another fine effort by Nick Foligno, who continues to own nearly a point-per-game pace despite his somewhat on-again, off-again scoring over the last few weeks. His 26 points are just one short of Ryan Johansen's team-leading 27, and he's on pace to blow past his personal records in basically every category here in his age-27 campaign.

Jackets' Foligno Nabs Goal No. 11

News: Nick Foligno potted his 11th goal of the season in Thursday's shootout win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Nick Foligno also chipped in seven hits defensively, making for a solid all-around performance for the winger, who has probably been the Jackets' best offensive threat outside of Ryan Johansen this season. The 27-year-old has seen his production taper off slightly in the last three weeks, but he's still picking up points with enough regularity to remain worthy of rostering in most formats.

Jackets' Foligno Continues Remarkable Season

News: Nick Foligno bagged his 10th goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's shootout loss to Boston.
Analysis: After being held off the scoresheet in the last two games, it didn't take long for Nick Foligno to get back on track. The 27-year-old now has 20 points in 18 games, to go with a tidy plus-4 rating. A known 40-point guy producing at a point-per-game pace in 2014-15? This can't be real life, can it? Foligno is thriving on the top line and doesn't appear to be slowing down. He won't keep producing at this torrid pace, but he should post career totals. Ride him while he's hot.

Columbus' Foligno: Hand Feeling Fine

News: Nick Foligno's hand is reportedly fine after he appeared to injure it during a fight late in Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Nick Foligno headed to the locker room about midway through the third period and didn't return, but it sounds like the Blue Jackets were just holding him out for precautionary purposes since the game had already devolved into a blowout. The winger did require some dental work after the game, but it shouldn't impact his availability for the Jackets' next game Friday versus the Bruins.

Jackets' Foligno Leaves With Possible Hand Injury

News: Nick Foligno headed to the locker room after hurting his hand following a third-period fight with Brendan Smith in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to the Red Wings, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: It was a rather pointless fight with the Blue Jackets trailing 4-0 at the time, and the team can only hope Nick Foligno didn't pay a major price for his misdeeds. He may have just been held out for the remainder of the contest as a precaution since the outcome was already decided, but expect further information on his condition to become available following Wednesday's practice. Foligno has supplied an astounding nine goals and nine assists over 17 contests this season, so a potential absence could prove costly to the Blue Jackets.

Jackets' Foligno Punishes Flyers With Two Goals

News: Nick Foligno scored twice and added an assist in Friday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Nick Foligno continues to be one of the biggest surprises this season, recording nine goals and 18 points in 15 games thus far. Playing on the top line and top power-play unit with Ryan Johansen, Foligno has notched five power-play goals this season -- tied for tops in the NHL. Considering the 27-year-old only managed 39 points in 70 games last season, what he has accomplished so far in 2014-15 is simply remarkable. Who saw an offensive breakout coming for Foligno in his eighth NHL season? He will slow down, but still expect him to post career numbers.

Nick Foligno

Jackets' Foligno Pockets Two More Points Saturday

News: Nick Foligno scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: He now has three multi-point games in his last four, and 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in 13 games on the year. Nick Foligno has been one of the few bright spots on an almost comically-undermanned Blue Jackets roster that has been crippled by injuries, but as long as he continues to see top-six ice time Foligno's capable of staying hot.
