News: Foligno didn't notch a point in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks, but did record four shots on net and four hits.
Impact: Foligno might be feeling the weight of his big contract and new captaincy, as he has just one goal through six games despite having recorded 24 SOG. His 18 hits and 10 PIM are solid, though, and the Blue Jackets' 0-6 start can't be pinned on his inability thus far to find the back of the net. He still has four points in those six games, and once the team snaps out of their funk, the goals should start to come.

News: Foligno scored a power play goal and added an even strength assist in Tuesday's 5-2 preseason win over the Predators.
Impact: The Blue Jackets top line of Foligno, Ryan Johansen and Brandon Saad combined for nine points on the night and is poised to come roaring out of the gate. Foligno seems like a prime candidate for regression after topping his previous career highs by 13 goals and 26 points last season, but if he continues skating with those two blossoming young power forwards, he should still be awfully productive even if he can't quite match his breakout performance.
