EDITOR'S NOTE: 
You've arrived at the latest edition of the CBJ Power Rankings, our weekly breakdown of the top-five players, statistics, trends and many other Blue Jackets-related categories. If you're looking for the traditional power rankings, you've come to the wrong place. We'll go in-depth and outside the box, and hopefully, give you something to think about.

Who were the Blue Jackets' leaders in the plus/minus department during the past week of play and what else did they bring to the table? Let's take a look.

 

NICK FOLIGNO
THIS WEEK: +2
ALSO: 2G-1A-3P in two games



Offensively, we've documented the big steps that Foligno has taking in terms of his production this season. He's currently T-3 in total scoring for the Blue Jackets (16 points), is T-5 in the NHL in shooting percentage with eight goals on 38 shots (21.1%) and has really picked it up of late with six points (3-3-6) in his last six games. This past week, he scored a highlight-reel goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning - featured on several nightly highlight reels including the one above - a goal that happened to stand as the game-winner. He also contributed an impressive assist of the behind-the-back variety, setting up line mate RJ Umberger for an easy goal against the Minnesota Wild. But most importantly, Foligno was part of a solid forechecking effort by his line with Umberger and Ryan Johansen, as the trio was charged with checking the top lines of the opposition. With a +2 total on the week, it's safe to say Foligno played a part in his line's success while also contributing a clutch goal.
