Nick Foligno (upper body) will travel with the Blue Jackets to Boston.

Nick Foligno (upper body) was on the ice with the Blue Jackets on Thursday.

There's still no clear timetable for Foligno though, nor is the forward willing to offer any insight into the nature of his injury. Foligno has already missed five straight games.

The timing of Nick Foligno's upper-body injury is particularly frustrating because he recently seemed to turn his season around.

Foligno has five goals and 15 points in the last 14 games that he had played. Unfortunately he's now out indefinitely after being blindsided by Brad Malone on Friday. "Losing Nick right now hurts us," Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. "The number of things that have gone on with our club … he was beginning to play better. I don’t think he was happy with the results, but he was in situations where he was playing much better. It’s a loss."

The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed Nick Foligno on injured reserve.

Foligno was knocked out of Friday's game against Carolina after taking a blindside hit from Brad Malone. The 28-year-old has six goals and 25 points in 39 games this season. He's out indefinitely.
Jan 9 - 1:11 PM

Nick Foligno took a blindside hit from Brad Malone Friday in the third period and did not return.

The NHL could look into the hit although no penalty was called. "I’m pretty sure that’s a head shot. I’m pretty sure it’s dirty," teammate Brandon Dubinsky said of Malone’s hit on Foligno. "I’m surprise that four guys (the officials) didn’t see it. It’s nasty. It’s tough. He’s an important part of the team and he’s not feeling great right now." Dubinsky went after Malone later in the game. There was no update after the game on Foligno so consider him day-to-day for now.
Jan 9 - 6:52 AM

Nick Foligno scored his sixth goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

With the goal, Foligno has now registered a point in three straight games. He finished the night a minus-1 and had four shots, two hits, and one blocked shot. The 28 year-old totals six goals and 24 points in 38 games this season. He also has nine points in his last 10 games.
Jan 5 - 10:50 PM

Nick Foligno assisted on three goals in a 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.

After a breakout 2014-15 season, Foligno has really struggled to put up points this season. This marks just his second multi-point game of the season and owners should consider dropping the 28-year-old forward if they have not already.

Nick Foligno (undisclosed) will get back in the fold on Tuesday night.

He was riding a four-game point streak before sitting out three games with an unspecified ailment. Foligno has 19 points in 35 games this year. Get him back in your lineup if you normally would.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 11:11:00 AM

Nick Foligno (undisclosed) won't play Saturday night against Tampa Bay.

He isn't with the Blue Jackets on the road and is still considered day-to-day.
Sat, Dec 26, 2015 12:16:00 PM

Nick Foligno (undisclosed) will not be available on Monday.

Foligno was hurt during Saturday's contest. We don't know a lot about Foligno's injury, but thanks to the Christmas break the Blue Jackets are off until Saturday after Monday's contest, so Foligno will get plenty of time to recover.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 11:46:00 AM

Nick Foligno is "nicked up, no pun intended," according to Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella.

Foligno sustained the undisclosed injury during Saturday's game. Whatever it is, it's serious enough to put his availability for Monday's contest into question.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 10:52:00 AM

With Thursday's eventual game-winning tally, Nick Foligno now has a three-game point streak.

Not bad timing for the Blue Jackets' captain, eh. He also picked up a block, two shots, and three hits during his 17:32 of work. Foligno now has five goals and 18 points in 34 games this season.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 01:25:00 AM

Nick Foligno registered an assist in a 2-1 loss on Monday.

Foligno has four goals and 16 points in 32 games this season. That's a far cry from his 73-point 2014-15 campaign and is instead more in line with what he accomplished prior to that breakout season. Unfortunately we haven't been given much reason to believe that his 2014-15 season is something he's going to replicate.
