The Columbus Blue Jackets are battling for a playoff spot with the Chicago Blackhawks but that is not stopping teams calling GM Jarmo Kekäläinen about the availability of team leader Nick Foligno.
TSN’s Pierre LeBrun is reporting, “They’re have been teams, I’m told, that have kicked the tires on Nick Foligno, who would be a real prime target as a pending UFA and is a physical player and the leader of the Blue Jackets.”
Foligno is the kind of player you would want to add to your top six come playoff time. The big question is, do the Blue Jackets want to trade Foligno?
Foligno, who carries a $5.5 million cap hit, has five goals and 12 points 31 games this season
