Nick Foligno's time in Columbus is over, with the Blue Jackets trading their longtime captain to the Toronto Maple Leafs to chase the Stanley Cup.

Columbus received a 2021 first- and 2022 fourth-round pick from Toronto as part of the three-team trade completed Sunday, which also involved the San Jose Sharks. That was a worthwhile return for the Blue Jackets to part with Foligno, who was one of the faces of the franchise for almost a decade.

"This is an opportunity for me," Foligno said. "Let's be honest: It's been a tough year here in Columbus, and I take a lot of that responsibility, so this is an opportunity that I get that I'm not going to waste."
