Forward Nick Foligno scored both of the Blue Jackets' goals in a 4-2 loss Monday night to the visiting New York Rangers.

Nick Foligno is having a tough time this season.

Foligno was an All-Star last season with 31 goals and 73 points but he has been going in reverse in 2015-16 as he has only nine goals and 34 points in 67 games with a minus-16 rating. He has not had a point in his last 11 games. "There are a lot of things about my game this season that have just … fooled me," Foligno said. "I’ve gone through every emotion possible. Anger. Frustration. Disappointment. I’m trying to be a good leader for this team and find my way through it. I know it’s not going to last. I know I’ll be a better player for it and come out on the other side." Look for an improvement to 50-55 points next season and draft him accordingly.
Apr 2 - 8:20 AM

Nick Foligno was minus-three on Monday, dropping to minus-16 this season.

Foligno also extended his point drought to 10 games. There's still a little time left for him to bounce back, but right now it looks like he's limping to the finish line. In a way that's appropriate given the overall storyline of this season for Foligno. He was coming off of a breakout 73-point campaign and he ended up going back to square one in 2015-16 with nine goals and 34 points in 66 contests.

Nick Foligno (illness) is expected to be in the lineup Thursday night when the Jackets take on the Carolina Hurricanes.

Foligno missed the game on Tuesday due to an illness. The last time Foligno faced the Canes, in early January, he had to leave the game early because of a hit which resulted in a concussion and he missed six games.
Mar 24 - 10:46 AM

Nick Foligno (illness) participated in Wednesday's practice.

He sat out Tuesday's game with an illness and he's still not 100 percent, but he appears to be on track to play Thursday night.
Mar 23 - 5:46 PM

Nick Foligno will indeed miss Tuesday's match with Philadelphia due to the flu.

He wasn't on the ice for warm-ups, so he's not going to play. After a banner year last season, Foligno has posted nine goals and 34 points in 63 games thus far.
Mar 22 - 6:48 PM

Nick Foligno (illness) is questionable to play Tuesday night.

He didn't skate in the morning because he was feeling sick, so his status is in doubt against Philadelphia. Foligno hasn't recorded a point in his last seven games.
Mar 22 - 10:56 AM

Nick Foligno rallied the Blue Jackets past the Devils on Thursday night with a hat trick and an assist, totaling four points.

After a 73-point campaign last season, fantasy owners have had to be extremely patient this year with Foligno. A mix of slumps and injuries have been detrimental to his value, but the 28-year-old has the ability to get hot and be useful for the fantasy playoffs. Thursday night was certainly a boost for Foligno, who has just nine goals and 32 points in 53 games.
Feb 25 - 10:33 PM

Nick Foligno (upper body) will return to the Jackets' lineup on Saturday night.

The 28-year-old missed six games after being rocked by Canes forward Brad Malone. Foligno has six goals and 25 points in 39 games this season. He's played in just four games since Dec. 21.
Jan 23 - 1:44 PM

Nick Foligno (upper body) has been taken off of the injured reserve list.

It's still not clear if Foligno will play on Saturday, but this move certainly makes it seem likely. He has missed six straight games.
Jan 22 - 2:13 PM

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

Foligno isn't sure if he'll be in the lineup against the Bruins on Saturday though, but at least there's that possibility. He has six goals and 25 points in 39 contests this season.
Jan 22 - 1:10 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 11:32 AM

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."
