Nick Foligno scored his 19th goal of the season Monday in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

The forward had a horrible season in 2015-16 when he had only 12 goals and 37 points but this is a bounce back year for the winger who has 41 points in 53 games. He has chipped in with 41 penalty minutes and has been a stud on the power play with nine goals and 18 points. He should be in someone's lineup in most pools.

Nick Foligno extended his point streak to four games on Tuesday.

Foligno found the back of the net in Columbus' 6-4 win over the New York Rangers. That gives him 18 goals and 40 points in 47 contests this season. In all likelihood he'll finish below his career-high of 73 points set in 2014-15, but he might not finish far off from that and given how much of a deviation the 73-point campaign was from his career norms, close is very good.

He is on pace to beat his 2014-15 season when he was one of the NHL's top players with 31 goals and 73 points in 79 contests. He is a must-own at this time.
