Blue Jackets likely to lose F Nick Foligno for rest of regular season with lower-body injury

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Nick Foligno may miss the final six games of the regular season with a lower-body injury, leaving the Columbus Blue Jackets without one of their leaders in the thick of a playoff race.

Foligno has 18 goals, 21 assists and a plus-5 rating in 70 games. He was hurt late in Thursday night's 2-0 victory at Philadelphia when he banged knees with Flyers forward Scott Hartnell.

Coach Todd Richards says it's "more than likely" Foligno will miss the rest of the team's regular-season games. Matt Frattin was set to take his place in the lineup Friday night against Chicago.

Foligno's younger brother, Marcus, was also injured in the Buffalo Sabres' game Thursday night and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
