COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed left wing Nick Foligno to a three-year, $9.15 million contract.

General manager Scott Howson announced the signing Friday, five days after Foligno was picked up in a trade with Ottawa for defenceman Marc Methot. Foligno, who was a restricted free agent, will receive $2.5 million in 2012-13, $3 million in 2013-14 and $3.75 in 2014-15.

The 24-year-old Foligno, who had 15 goals and 32 assists a year ago, is expected to add some much needed punch to the Blue Jackets' offence. He has 61 goals and 87 assists with 299 penalty minutes in 351 career NHL games with the Senators.
