The Columbus Blue Jackets announced Sunday that captain Nick Foligno will miss Monday’s game against Ottawa and be away from the team as his daughter Milana will experience a scheduled surgery in Boston.
The team stated he”will come back to the team whenever possible”
Foligno’s daughter has been born with a heart defect that was mended weeks after her arrival. The team failed to state if the surgeries are all related.
Foligno missed a game in November when Milana was hospitalized as a result of virus.
