Nick Foligno Is Aiming To Play On The Ottawa Senators’ Second Line This Season

September 28th, 2010 by Christopher Smith Leave a reply »
Before the pre-season started, popular opinion had young Peter Regin playing the second line along side Mike Fisher and Alexei Kovalev. Nick Foligno is making his case though for the position, having scored four highlight-reels goals in only three pre-season games so far.

“I guess if you evaluate the last few games he would be (the front-runner),” said coach Cory Clouston. “But he’s got to make sure he doesn’t get complacent, and the lines are never set in stone.”

Foligno knows that the second line position is something that has to be earned. “It's just a matter of going out there and doing it. It's a process and there's a lot of great players and a lot of guys pushing for that opportunity.”

Foligno is coming off an injury-riddled season in Ottawa that saw him play only 61 games and earn only nine goals and 17 assists for 26 points. His best season totals have come in 2008-09, where he scored 17 goals and 15 assists for 32 points in 81 games.
