Foligno has failed to score a goal in his last 20 outings. Foligno's goalless draught is not from a lack of trying. The Columbus captain has fired 42 shots on goal since his last goal on Oct. 16. It has been a difficult start to the season for Foligno, as expectation soared following his 31 goals last season. Despite his struggles, the 28-year-old continues to anchor the right-side on Columbus' top line.
Foligno didn't notch a point in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks, but he did record four shots on net and four hits to go along with a minus-one rating. He might be feeling the weight of his big contract and new captaincy, as Foligno has just one goal through six games despite 24 shots, but his 18 hits and 10 PIM are solid and the Blue Jackets' 0-6 start can't be pinned on his inability to find the back of the net. He still has four points in those six games, and once the team snaps out of its funk, his plus/minus should catch up to the rest of his game.
