He was chosen in the first round, 28th overall by the club in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft in Vancouver, B.C.. His father, Mike Foligno, also played in the NHL.

Playing careerEdit

Nick Foligno played for the US National Under-18 team in 2003–04 before joining the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL, coached by his father, Mike Foligno. Nick played three seasons for Sudbury before turning professional in 2007.

On March 21, 2007, the Senators' general manager John Muckler announced the club agreed to terms on a contract with Foligno. According to reports, Foligno excels in plays in the corner and usually scores in front of the net. He played his first NHL regular-season game on October 1, 2007.[1] "He plays like his dad, I’ll tell you that," said former Senators' general manager John Muckler. "He’s a gritty player. He has a little bit of sandpaper to him".[2]
