Jackets Sign Nick Foligno to Extension

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Nick Foligno to a six-year extension worth $5.5 million per season.

Foligno, 27, has 17 goals and 15 assists in 34 games for the Blue Jackets this season. If the Blue Jackets are expecting Foligno to maintain his 22.1% shooting percentage of early this season, they are bound to be disappointed. Regardless of the price, they have a solid hockey player under their control for the next six seasons.

Foligno was eligible to be a UFA after this season.
