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.

Nick Foligno's recent illness was a bad stomach flu.

Captain Nick Foligno is too sick to play in Friday's match with the Red Wings.

Being sick sucks, and you know it has to be bad for Foligno to miss a game. He's posted 10 goals and 22 points in 24 games along with 15 blocks, 22 PIMs, and 36 hits. He's considered day-to-day.

Nick Foligno is back to having a great season and his reuniting with Brandon Saad is a major reason why.

Foligno had an outstanding 2014-15 season with 73 points but slumped terribly last season with only 12 goals and 37 points as he and Saad were rarely together. He has played most of the season with Saad and Alexander Wennberg and the trio have been sensational with Foligno scoring eight goals and 19 points in 20 games. "Me and Saader have joked about it," Foligno said. "Now that we’re back together, we want to make sure we keep working to have success." Foligno is back to his 2014-15 pace and is a must start in all formats of fantasy hockey.

Captain Nick Foligno led the Blue Jackets' comeback 3-2 win over the Capitals on Sunday.

Nick Foligno has gotten off to a phenomenal start this season.

Foligno took a giant leap forward in 2014-15 when he recorded 73 points, but he followed that up with a 37-point campaign. Given his history, it seemed fair to wonder if that 73-point season would go down as an outlier. It won't if he keeps playing like this though as he already has six goals and 16 points in 13 games this season. "When I step on the ice, I feel like I’m playing at a level that I expect everyone to get to," Foligno said. "That’s where I failed last year. I’ll use the word — failed — because I think I did. And that’s something I didn’t want to have happen again."

Nick Foligno found the back of the net in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Foligno opened the scoring at the 2:29 mark of the first period, but Columbus watched as Boston scored five unanswered goals. The 29-year-old's produced at a decent clip this season, as he's picked up eight points in his last six games. Foligno has five goals and 13 points in 12 games in 2016-17. Sam Gagner scored Columbus' other goal.
