It has been a disappointing season for the Columbus Blue Jackets, and they may be on the verge of trading their captain.
According to Frank Seravalli of TSN Sports, the Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche and Washington Capitals are among the teams that could trade a first-round pick to the Blue Jackets in a deal that included Nick Foligno.
While Foligno played the first five seasons of his career for the Ottawa Senators, it would be somewhat jarring to see him suit up for a team outside of Columbus at this point given his status with the franchise.
The Blue Jackets made the playoffs one time in their entire history before he arrived for the 2012-13 campaign. They have made the playoffs five times with him on their roster, including in each of the last four seasons.
