Blue Jackets tap Nick Foligno as first captain in 3 years

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Like father, like son: Nick Foligno now is an NHL captain just like his dad was.

Foligno, who served as a captain for the NHL All-Star Game in Columbus in January, was introduced Wednesday as the first Blue Jackets player in three years to wear the "C" on his jersey.

His dad, Mike, a former captain for the Buffalo Sabres and now an assistant coach in New Jersey, found out about Nick's appointment via a phone call. So did Nick's brother, Marcus, a current Sabres forward.
