Foligno scored his third goal in the last four games during Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

The Blue Jackets' captain now has eight points (three goals and five assists) through nine games to go along with a plus-7 rating. Foligno hasn't been able to recapture his 30-goal form from 2014-15 over the last couple of seasons, but with a secure spot in Columbus' top six and a wealth of young offensive talent surrounding him, he seems headed for another big campaign.

Foligno opened the scoring on the power play and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Foligno has had a productive start to the season, racking up a pair of goals and seven points through eight games. The second-line center plays on a loaded first power-play unit and is delivering for fantasy goers after a solid 26-goal 2016-17 campaign. His steady point production makes him worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Foligno scored a goal and added two shots on net, two hits, a blocked shot and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

His unassisted tally in the second period was his first goal of the season, but Foligno's been productive without finding the back of the net, racking up five points with a plus-7 rating through six games. He's been the one constant on the Jackets' second line through the early part of the year, and the veteran should continue seeing plenty of premium ice time moving forward.

Foligno will open the season at center rather than the wing, Adam Jardy of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a curious move considering that Boone Jenner (back) is hurt and Josh Anderson is holding out in a contract dispute, stretching the team's depth on the flanks, but the Jackets think 2016 first-round pick Pierre-Luc Dubois will make a better adjustment to the NHL at left wing, which leaves Foligno as the other other viable option up the middle. The veteran will still have a prominent role in the offense, however, and this move shouldn't impact his production for however long it lasts.

Foligno didn't register a shot on goal against Nashville in Sunday's 5-3 preseason loss.

EDGE Analysis

Foligno was all over the ice Sunday, collecting 3:01 of power-play time, 3:14 spent with the penalty kill and 14:15 of even-strength play. With the addition of Artemi Panarin in the offseason, the captain will likely be demoted to a second-line role, centered by Brandon Dubinsky. Still, a 50-point season would be very much in play for the 29-year-old.

Foligno saw 25:13 of ice time in Tuesday's preseason clash with Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the high volume of minutes -- which included 8:17 with the man advantage -- Foligno compiled just one shot on goal, three hits and two blocks. After missing the Blue Jackets' final playoff contest, the 29-year-old appears to be back to 100 percent and should challenge for the 50-point mark again this year.

Foligno was named the winner of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy and the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Both the Mark Messier Award and the King Clancy Trophy are awarded to the player who best exemplifies qualities on and off the ice, and the Blue Jackets captain capped off a season in which he recorded 51 points in 79 games and led the team to a 32-point improvement in the standings. He bounced back nicely after scoring just 12 goals and 37 points in the previous season, shouldering much of the blame that also saw former head coach Todd Richards get fired. Off the ice, Foligno was also a model citizen, donating $500,000 each to the Children's Hospital in Boston and the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.

Foligno couldn't even get his injured foot in his skate boot for Game 5 against the Penguins on Thursday, Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Between this injury and struggling to a minus-5 rating, the American winger had a forgettable series that culminated in a quick playoff exit for the Blue Jackets. Columbus even took an overtime loss when Foligno notched a pair of assists in Game 3. It'll be interesting to see how quickly he can recover from this malady in the offseason. During the regular season, the 10th-year skater fashioned 51 points (26 goals, 25 assists) in 79 games for fourth place on his own team.

Foligno will not play Thursday night's Game 5 in Pittsburgh due to a lower-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

There was no indication prior to warmups that Foligno was dealing with any sort of ailment, so it's quite shocking to see him get scratched so close to puck drop. Scott Hartnell will replace Foligno in the lineup for the crucial playoff game.

Foligno scored the lone goal against Chicago during Friday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first tally in eight games for the Columbus captain, and he also had just one helper during that stretch. Foligno has turned in a solid offensive campaign with 25 goals and 49 points through 74 games, and his 176 shots, 49 PIM and 132 hits also help his fantasy stock. He's still more of a complimentary asset in the majority of settings, though.
