The question of where Nick Foligno plays seems like it would have been a lot harder to answer before Alex Edler went knee hunting on Zach Hyman, so the easy answer seems to be, he’ll go where Hyman was, and that’s that.

If you are looking for a more detailed exploration that probably leads you around to a similar conclusion, strap in. We’re going for it.
First, it’s important to note that today is the last day of Foligno’s quarantine from the Leafs. He will not be in the lineup against the Canucks, but he is a virtual lock to be in against the Jets on Thursday.

In short, don’t count on him riding shotgun with Matthews and Marner…yet.
