Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Makes impact in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Sabres.

The veteran forward hadn't had a multi-point performance since he potted two goals against the Rangers on Jan. 13. Foligno simply isn't a big offensive threat at this stage of his career -- he's got 17 goals and 33 points in 70 games -- but he'll continue to give John Tortorella max effort in whatever role the coach needs him in on any given night.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Misses mark in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) recorded four shots and three hits over 13:16 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Islanders.

Foligno didn't hit the scoresheet, but since it wasn't an injury that caused him to miss the previous four games, Foligno should be fine despite the limited amount of ice time. The captain has recorded 16 goals, 14 assists and four power-play points through 67 games this season.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Will return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) will rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Islanders.

Foligno missed four straight contests while tending to an undisclosed personal matter. Everything appears to be in order for the captain, who will look to finish the season strong after a middling 30 points -- 16 goals and 14 assists -- through 66 games thus far.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Missing in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) is not in the lineup Sunday versus the Canucks.

The Blue Jackets' captain will miss a fourth straight contest as a result of a personal issue. To this point, the team has not provided any details, or a timeline regarding Foligno's eventual return, leaving fantasy owners in quite a pickle.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Still away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) won't be in the lineup versus Edmonton on Thursday, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

There has been no indication of when Foligno might be ready to rejoin the team, so fantasy owners will have to take a wait and see approach. In the meantime, Eric Robinson will slot into the lineup in Foligno's stead.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Calgary, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Considering Foligno isn't with the team for its three-game swing through Western Canada, he could miss the next two games as well, though he could travel on his own and rejoin the Jackets at any point. Without Foligno in the lineup, Lukas Sedlak and Oliver Bjorkstrand figure to see additional minutes.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Still out with personal issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) was not at practice Monday, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Foligno missed Columbus' game Saturday due to this issue. The Jackets play Tuesday against the Flames. Theoretically, the 31-year-old could play without needing to practice first, but it's not a good sign for his availability.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Out for personal matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno isn't available for Saturday's game against the Bruins due to a personal matter, Jeff Svoboda of The Toledo Blade reports.

Foligno reportedly didn't travel with the team, so it remains to be seen whether or not he will be available for the remainder of the road trip. He's expected to return soon, with his next chance coming Tuesday in Calgary. Without the captain available, Lukas Sedlak will draw into the lineup and will take Foligno's spot as the left wing on the third line.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Doles out another apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno recorded an assist in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.

In addition to being his usual physical self (154 hits), Foligno continues to provide key production from his bottom-six role. The veteran winger will fall short of his 51-point campaign from 2016-17, but, if he stays healthy, he should easily surpass the 33-point mark he finished with last season.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Ties scoring output from last season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno found the back of the net and recorded seven PIM in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens.

Foligno crashed the net to clean up a Josh Andersen shot that skipped off Carey Price's stick. The captain has now tied his scoring mark from the 2017-18 campaign, reaching 15 goals in 18 fewer games. His assists are down, though, as he's only set up 12 goals over 54 contests. Foligno isn't a must-have in the fantasy realm, but the Blue Jackets depend on him for his physicality and leadership intangibles.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Notches 14th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored an even-strength goal on four shots in Tuesday's win over the Capitals.

The veteran winger has been strong for the Blue Jackets this campaign, racking up 26 points in 50 games. Even though Foligno has just three power-play points, those numbers should increase, as evidenced by his 5:41 of ice time with the man advantage in Tuesday's contest. The 31-year-old is on pace for just his fourth career 40-point season.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Makes impact against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored two goals in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Rangers.

The tallies were his first in three games since he returned to the Jackets following a four-game absence due to his daughter's surgery. Foligno now has 12 goals and 23 points through 40 games, but given the premium ice time he still receives -- he skated 4:34 on the power play Sunday -- the 31-year-old could still put together a more productive second half.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Set to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) is expected to rejoin the team for a game-day skate Thursday and then slot back into the lineup against Nashville, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

Foligno missed the previous four games to attend to a family matter, but will be back on the ice with his teammates Wednesday. The winger recorded three goals in his previous six contests and will look to pick up where he left off versus the Predators.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Remains with family
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) will miss Tuesday's game versus the Lightning, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

The Jackets' forward will miss his fourth straight contest, as Foligno remains away from the team following his daughter's surgery. Some things are bigger than hockey. There's been no official word on when the 31-year-old will make his return to the lineup.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Still away from team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) is expected to miss a third straight game Saturday against the Panthers, NHL.com's Alain Poupart reports.

Foligno is still away from the team spending time with his daughter, who recently underwent surgery. The 31-year-old American's next opportunity to return to the lineup will arrive Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Will not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) will not be in action versus the Hurricanes on Friday, Jeff Svoboda of the Blue Jackets' official site reports.

Foligno will miss a second straight game, with the Blue Jackets managing to put up six goals in a win over the Senators on New Year's Eve -- just the second time this season that Columbus had been without its captain. His next chance to suit up will arrive Saturday for a road draw versus the Panthers.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Will miss Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno will sit out Monday's game as he tends to a family matter, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Either Josh Anderson or Oliver Bjorkstrand will get a game with the top six as a result of Foligno's absence. The Blue Jackets' captain is expected to return for Friday's game versus the Hurricanes. Foligno has 10 goals and 10 assists through 37 games this year, and he continues to add a physical touch with 77 hits as well.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Pots game-winner against Knights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno scored his eighth goal of the season in Monday's 1-0 win over the Golden Knights.

The Jackets had most of the best scoring chances on the night, but they couldn't get a puck past Malcolm Subban until Foligno banged home the rebound on a Seth Jones point shot 40 seconds into the third period, and Sergei Bobrovsky took care of the rest. The veteran forward now has 18 points in 32 games this season, but the streaky Foligno could heat up -- or go ice cold -- at any time.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Set to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) has linked up with the team in Toronto and is expected to slot into the lineup for Monday's contest.

Foligno was away from the team due to a personal matter that caused him to miss Saturday's clash with Carolina. With the winger back in the fold, he will likely slot into a top-six role in addition to retaking his spot on the power play. Prior to having to step away, the Buffalo native notched four points, 13 shots and six blocks in his previous five appearances.

Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno: Out against Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foligno (personal) won't play Saturday against the Hurricanes, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Foligno is evidently still tending to the personal matter that caused him to miss practice Friday. The Blue Jackets are hoping he'll be able to join them in Toronto for Monday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, so his absence could be limited to a single game. Brandon Dubinsky is expected to replace Foligno on Columbus' second line for Saturday's contest.
