Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno explodes with hat trick, assist

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno rallied the Blue Jackets past the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night with a hat trick and an assist, totaling four points.

What It Means:

After a 73-point campaign last season, fantasy owners have had to be extremely patient this year with Foligno. A mix of slumps and injuries have been detrimental to his value, but the 28-year-old has the ability to get hot and be useful for the fantasy playoffs. Thursday night was certainly a boost. Foligno has just nine goals and 32 points in 53 games.

Our rest-of-season projections have Foligno totaling five more goals with 10 more assists over the remainder of the season. His 52.9 Corsi For Percentage and 5.0 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength are both hovering near career-best levels.
