Nick Foligno said he hopes to debut for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; SN, TVAS, NHL.TV).
The forward was a guest on the 13th episode of "The Chirp with Daren Millard" podcast, available now on NHL.com and multiple iOS and Android podcast apps. He was traded to the Maple Leafs on April 11 in a three-team deal involving the Columbus Blue Jackets and San Jose Sharks and was required to quarantine for at least seven days due to COVID-19 protocols after arriving in Toronto because he crossed the United States-Canada border.
If Foligno plays Thursday, he'll play against former Blue Jackets teammate Pierre-Luc Dubois, who was traded to the Jets on Jan. 23.
