Nick Foligno LW CLS 1 Day

Foligno picked up two assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's win over the Capitals.

Fresh off his two-point All-Star Game performance, Foligno kept things going. He'd been cool heading into the break, with just a single point in his prior four games, but Foligno's rise to power continues nonetheless. With 44 points, he's just three shy of his career high now.

Foligno's point streak stands at seven games and 10 points, including eight assists, after he scored his 18th goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Islanders.

He has 40 points in just 39 games this season. There's a chance this level of play might be real -- he is just 27, after all. And that's when a lot of players used to break out. But the NHL is a changed place and we're not entirely sure he fits the profile of a true point-per-game guy. Bottom line? Keeper owners may want to leverage his value in a deadline deal. There are some things you want to hold onto there are others you don't want to get stuck with. There's a chance he's the latter.

Foligno handed out a hat trick's worth of assists -- one on the power play -- and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over the Stars.

He now has points in five consecutive games, with a goal and seven assists to show for that span. The amazing breakout continues -- he's just one point short of last year's 39, but this time he's done it in 38 games instead of 70.

Foligno added a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.

Foligno has points in four straight and has 35 through 36 games on the season. The 27-year-old is well on his way to breaking his old career-high in both goals (18) and points (47), and is currently on pace to surpass 70 points by the end of the season.

Foligno notched an assist in a 3-1 win over Minnesota on Wednesday.

Foligno paid instant dividends after the team signed him to a six-year extension worth $5.5 million per year. The assist now gives Foligno two points in his past two games and five points in his past five games. The 27-year-old is enjoying a breakout season in Columbus with 32 points in 34 games. He's well on his way to shatter his career-high of 47 points and his 17 goals ranks eighth in the league. He should be owned in all formats and a salute to clever owners who took a late-round gamble on the former 28th overall pick.

Foligno signed a six-year contract extension with the Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

Foligno was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but his new deal will lock him up through the 2020-21 campaign. He's been having a spectacular season so far, and is on pace for career-highs in both goals and assists. The 27-year-old has been both a force on the power play, and one of the fantasy surprises of 2014-15.

Foligno tallied his ninth power-play goal of the season in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Bruins.

Foligno has been a terror on the man advantage all season, tallying 17 of his 31 points when the Jackets have an extra skater. The recent returns from injury of Brandon Dubinsky and most recently, Scott Hartnell resulted in Foligno getting pushed down to the third line to start Saturday's game, but he still saw over 20 minutes of ice time. No matter who he lines up with, Foligno remains rosterable in any format until he notices a prolonged slump in what has been a dream season to this point.

Foligno scored two goals -- one on a power play -- and added a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Washington.

On the dark side of things, he went minus-1 and lost eight out of nine faceoffs. But hey, it's a three-point night, so let's not nitpick too much -- especially now that Foligno's officially a point-per-game man, with 30 in 30.

Foligno scored the Jackets' first goal and then found net on an overtime power play to deliver a 3-2 win over Washington on Thursday.

Another fine effort by Foligno, who continues to own nearly a point-per-game pace despite his somewhat on-again, off-again scoring over the last few weeks. His 26 points are just one short of Ryan Johansen's team-leading 27, and he's on pace to blow past his personal records in basically every category here in his age-27 campaign.

Foligno potted his 11th goal of the season in Thursday's shootout win over the Panthers.

Foligno also chipped in seven hits defensively, making for a solid all-around performance for the winger, who has probably been the Jackets' best offensive threat outside of Ryan Johansen this season. The 27-year-old has seen his production taper off slightly in the last three weeks, but he's still picking up points with enough regularity to remain worthy of rostering in most formats.
