Okay, this one hurts, and I hoped to not write this article, but now I have to. Nick Foligno, the Blue Jacket’s Captain, has been traded, less than 24-hours before the deadline. Starting next season he will be a Maple Leaf. In exchange, the team has received a first and fourth round pick, the first will be eligible for this years draft, while the fourth round pick will be in next years 2022 draft. We will see very soon if this trade was worth it to the team, and Foligno’s loyal Columbus fan base.
Good luck Foligno, it’s bitter sweet to see you go.
