Foligno scored two goals in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals in Game 6.

EDGE Analysis

While a number of Jackets players failed to show up with their playoff lives on the line, Foligno wasn't one of them as he scored his first two goals of the series. His only other point this postseason was an assist in Game 2, however, and after a regular season in which he scored only 15 goals and 33 points, the 30-year-old seems likely to settle into a checking-line role in 2018-19.

Foligno got an assist during a 5-4 Game 2 overtime win over Washington on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the last six regular season games, Foligno returned just in time for the postseason, and got his team rolling with a primary assist to Cam Atkinson for Columbus' first goal. Although the captain is receiving a hefty 19:25 of ice time and picking up 1:45 on the second power-play unit, it appears he's assuming a more defensively based role for the playoffs -- he's just fired off one shot on net while averaging four hits and three blocked shots so far through the first two games. Nonetheless, Foligno should continue logging big minutes and see a fair share of offensive opportunities as Columbus looks to finish off Washington.

Foligno (lower body) is expected to be ready for Thursday's Game 1 matchup with Washington, per Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Foligno missed the final six games of the regular season, but would appear to be ready to suit up for the playoffs. Prior to getting hurt, the 29-year-old was bogged down in a six-game goal drought, but had managed to secure five helpers over that stretch. With the Buffalo native back in action, Sonny Milano figures to be the odd man out.

Foligno (lower body) will make the trip to Nashville for Saturday's game against the Predators, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

While there's still no guarantee he will dress for the contest, Foligno's presence on the trip provides a solid indication that he will be available for the team's postseason opener at the very least. If Foligno sits through the contest, his regular season would wrap up having collected 33 points -- 15 goals and 18 assists -- through 72 games this season.

Foligno will be sidelined 2-4 weeks with a lower-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

If Foligno is on the short end of his expected timeline, he could be back for the start of the playoffs, but if his injury keeps him out closer to four weeks, he may miss the entire first-round series. Despite a six-game goal drought, the Buffalo native tallied five helpers over that stretch, along with 22 hits and six blocks. In order to provide additional forward depth, the Blue Jackets called up Alex Broadhurst from the minors.

Foligno recorded two assists while adding one shot, two hits, one blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

It's his second straight game with two points, and Foligno now has a goal and six points with a plus-5 rating over the last five games while dishing out a whopping 16 hits. The Jackets' captain has had a disappointing offensive season until his recent hot streak, but he's capable of generating some strong fantasy numbers down the stretch with his physical play.

Foligno picked up two assists while adding eight hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran forward has started to show signs of life offensively, scoring a goal and four points over the last four games, but it's the physical edge to Foligno's recent play that has been the biggest contributor to the Jackets' current eight-game win streak. Expect him to continue throwing his weight around as Columbus looks to lock down a playoff spot.

Foligno (lower body) returned to action Thursday night against the Kings, recording a minus-3 rating over 15:44 of ice time in a 5-2 road loss.

EDGE Analysis

The captain, who missed the prior four contests due to his injury, certainly didn't appear to be 100 percent upon returning, and his playing time was down close to three minutes against his season average. It could take a few games for Foligno to get his legs back, but he may have already fallen out of favor in a large share of fantasy leagues as the owner of just 26 points (13 goals, 13 assists) and a minus-4 rating through 60 games.

The Blue Jackets will activate Foligno (lower body) from injured reserve Wednesday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foligno has missed the Blue Jackets' last four games due to a lower-body injury, but he was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, which was the first indication he was likely nearing a return to the lineup. The 30-year-old winger, who's notched 13 goals and 26 points in 59 games this season, will almost certainly return to his role skating on Columbus' second line and second power-play unit Thursday against the Kings.

Foligno (lower body) endured a limited on-ice workout Monday, ahead of a home game against the Capitals, George Richards of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foligno has missed the past three games as he continues to tend to the lower-body injury that he sustained in a Feb. 18 contest against the Penguins. It's still too early to know whether the captain has any shot at playing in the upcoming contest, but we'll follow up when such details surface.
